Post anything related to baseball. If it doesn't fit in the Yankees Discussion forum, it fits here.
The following announcement is specific for the Yankees, but tickets to all MLB games, in additon to all other sporting, concert, or show events are also available. Check out http://tickets.nyyfans.com to see if we have tickets to the event you're looking for.
So you want to see the Yankees, ay? Are you frustrated by the lack of quality seats available from the Yankees Box Office or Ticketmaster, don't want to take out a second mortgage to buy...

Since there have been a couple queries about message boards for other teams in the past couple days, I thought it might be useful to have some sort of list of good fan sites around the MLB.
My goal is to have only two or three sites per team--it's not meant to include every forum out there. I also prefer to post forum sites over blogs, although if a blog has a game thread or is really, really good, I'll include it. Thanks for all the suggestions!
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.
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.
Who do you consider the 5 greatest Yankees of all-time? Here's my picks:
I'm interested to hear your replies.
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!
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 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!!!
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'd like to take a minute to plug my friends video, "The 59 minute Baseball Practice". It's a bestseller on Amazon.com. For any coaches out there, it's really worth checking out. Fun drills to develop skills so there's no wasted time at practice. Use of "rag" balls to reduce fear of catching fly balls, bunting, base running, and other important skills, taught in a way that is fun and so kids aren't just standing around shagging balls. It's great even if you aren't a coach. I wish I had this...
Shortstop Everett "Deacon" Scott was benched by Miller Huggins May 6.
Waite Hoyt, Herb pennock, Urban Shocker, and reliever Wilcy Moore each won more than 18, but I don't know which one won more than 20.
Was it Juan Marichal?

I just got thru reading an article in the Oct 98 issue of Smithsonian magazine...it was sitting in our break room here at work. Apparently, there has been a resurrgence of "old-time" baseball in the past few years...and I mean OLD TIME. The writer was on location in Old Bethpage, NY covering this league up there that plays baseball the way it was played around the 1860's. They play with no gloves, have 4 strikes and 5 balls...lots of stuff like that. I have GOT to see this!
The 77-78 and 98-99 yanks were the last two great teams to win back to back rings. For fun which is a better team?
1st- Chambliss Martinez
2nd Willie Chuck
SS Dent Jeter
3rd Nettles Scott
Catcher Munson Joe G & Prosada
LF Curtis Louuuuuuuuuuu
First will go with some "recent" trivia
1- Name the coach who was the Red sox manager when Bucky hit the HR in 1978
2-who closed 1996 w/ a string of 209 errorless games
3- Did paul o'neil hit higher in the '90 series w/ the reds or with the Yankees in '96?
4-Name the '96 coach who won 20 games, then lost 20 the next year.

2-1920-21, 1923-24 1926-30

Remember those free agents from the 80s and how *some* became quite unproductive?

Androstenedione Study Finds Increase in Male Hormones
By MURRAY CHASS
The over-the-counter diet supplement androstenedione has been found to increase the male hormone testosterone, but scientists still do not know if it helped Mark McGwire hit 70 home runs in 1998. They plan to try to find out.
Results of a study of the supplement, commonly known as andro, that was commissioned by Major League Baseball and the Players Association appear in today's edition of the Journal of the American...

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) The Atlanta Braves couldn't escape the shadow of John Rocker at the opening of spring training Friday. Still, they seemed willing to forgive the suspended reliever.
"Who am I to judge John Rocker?" said Brian Jordan, who was initially one of the pitcher's harshest critics. "I hope he will take this experience, learn...
I have a 13 year old son and I tell him how double headers were common place. I remember on a warm day, usually a Sunday you get to the game at about 11 and take in batting practice. And in those days the Yankees use to hit last at batting practice so you use to see them, not like now. But yu sit back and enjoy 2 games for the price of a grandstand seat of $1.50. And the games lasted about 2 hours. God how I miss those days. We use to have at least 4 to 6 hot dogs that if I remember cost a...
Who is everyone's favorite Yankee (who doesn't currently play) of all time? My favorite the Great Yankee Clipper, Joltin' Joe, Joe t-- ok, you get the idea.

I hate to say this at this time of the year but I see another baseball strike coming when the latest contract is up. Salaries are escalating to the point where the minimum will be 1million dollars and that is ridiculous I am sorry also to say. I hope that I am wrong but baseball is heading in that direction once again. Need for greed. Donald Fehr is the Villain here. His main interest is how much money he can make and thinks nothing of the fans either!

LITTLE FALLS -- Baseball Hall of Famer Lawrence Peter "Yogi" Berra may be known for appearing in a record 14 World Series with the Yankees, but the Montclair resident also still treasures his appearance in a greater moment in history.
When he was 18 years old, Berra was in the U.S. Navy and found himself in combat during the D-day invasion of Normandy, France, on June 6, 1944.
