Post anything related to baseball. If it doesn't fit in the Yankees Discussion forum, it fits here.
I had the leasure of sitting in Dr. Bobby Brown's box seats on the third base side when Jim Abbott threw his no hitter against the indians. When Carlos Baerga grounded out to Velarde for the final out I was needless to say in my glory. Great experience I will not ever forget!
I personally was born a fan. My mother and father were both Yankee fans, even before they met each other...so were my grandparents...so that makes me a 3rd generation fan. What's your history? My father saw Gehrig and Ruth play...and my mother's favorite player was "Old Reliable".
Through the years, I have had many favorites...Guidry, Nettles, Gossage, Winfield, Righetti, Hunter...and my favorite now, Tino. Although I have to say...I love 'em all!!!
Does anyone know of a site that gives the entire Simon & Garfunkal (spelling?) song? I was curious about the rest of it. I know most of the parts (such as the one in my signature), but I'm interested in finding the whole song.
Where have you gone, Joe Dimaggio? Our nation turns its lonely eyes on you...
I've been browsing various other MLB club forums and they seem to think that Total Revenue sharing is coming soon to MLB because of this new "Power" the owners entrusted to Bud Selig. They are also of the opinion that Total Revenue sharing will doom the Yankees.
I'm I wrong or wasn't it just National TV and Internet revenues that are to be shared and not local TV & Radio?
And If I'm wrong and its all Revenues, how do you see this affecting the Yanks if at all?
Great New Site!
Who do you consider the 5 greatest Yankees of all-time? Here's my picks:
I'm interested to hear your replies.
It seems that every year we are mourning in the loss of a Yank. Last year; 'Joltin' Joe Dimmagio. This year; Bob Lemon. I afraid that for all the greats, their time has finally come. In a few years, many will be gone, and we will lose the "Old Time" feeling. Lets remember and care for that feeling as long as we have it. Go read a book about Babe Ruth. Get a video all about Mickey Mantle. Don't just pay attention to all the up and coming superstars, remember where the real greats are.
In 1978 I had the extreme pleasure of meeting Billy Martin. I was down in Baltimore visiting friends and we saw Billy, believe it or not, coming out of a cooking gadget store! I swear, it's true. I know there are a lot of people who would never have approached him, but I will never regret that we walked right up to him and asked if he would mind posing for a picture with us. (I was with a friend). He was really nice...a true gentleman.
