" Freezing February School Yard Hot Dogs, Brandy and Baseball Oil Drum BonFire for the Fans "
NEW YORK YANKEES
The Highlanders and Baltimore Orioles before that.
Greatest moment of my baseball life,
1976 ALCS Chris Chambliss HR game. SICK!!
Thurman Munson & Billy Martin
The Core Four and Bernie
Good Bye ol Stadium, this Met fan will miss you.
TORONTO BLUE JAYS
Dave Stieb, George Bell and Exhibition Stadium
I know all the words to the Canadian National Anthem
Joe Carter's all-time WS moment.
I have to go at least two times a year, I love going to games there
and hanging out in the harbor. Rusty Scupper rocks!!
I always pitstop in Aberdeen to catch a New York Penn League game too.
EDDIE MURRAY!!! and that guy who used to cheerlead on top of the dugout at old Memorial Stadium.
BOSTON RED SOX
My 2nd favorite team. I love the city of Boston! Another 2x a year thing.
YAZ!!! Luis Tiant, Fred Lynn, Fisk, Dewey
Words can not express how much I love Fenway Park
That guy hawking steak sandwiches over by Gate D is going to be left in my Will...those sandwiches are friggin unbelievable!!
TAMPA BAY RAYS
Their owner is from Brooklyn
They come to the Bronx and give the Yankees fits all the time.
I really hope they get their stadium deal worked out because it looks like a really nice lookin design.
Chalk one up for the small market teams!
CHICAGO WHITE SOX
I met Kenny Williams in front or Oriole Park one game. What a class guy!! Without getting into the story..he just chilled with my family and me for a solid 10 minutes. He seemed in no rush to go inside.
You may not like Ozzie Guillen but he's good for baseball!
I have no reason at all to think Big Hurt isn't one of the "good guys" on the 500 list!
...is on this year's wish list for a road trip.
Bob Feller is one of my most favorite pitchers of All-Time!!
I would have honestly liked to have seen one of those mid-90s teams win a WS.
Do you remember Steve Olin? I do. He closes out games for Team Eternity these days.
KANSAS CITY ROYALS
Some of my fondest memories of baseball were of the K.C. vs N.Y.Y rivalry in the late 70s.
AstroTurf days or not...that park was always nice with the fountains.
Dan Quisenberry, Amos Otis, Frank White
I was watching the Yankee game on TV when George Brett freaked out over the HR/OUT.
No one gives them enough speak to the fact they are the Washington Senators continued. I see them as one of the old school franchises with the rich long history; a century plus years old franchise and
not another 60s run-away rebel.
So in that case ..take this BIG TRAIN !!!
As a young NY Mets prospect back in '82-'84, I couldn't stand Ron Gardenhire!! Hated him almost.
He's one of the best managers in baseball today..Period!! I hope that makes up for it Ron?
!! > Tony Oliva < !!
Trammel and Whitaker. Jack Morris should be in HOF.
I miss Tiger Stadium!
Willie Horton on the streets of Detroit in his uniform trying to get people to stand down from their angers.
One of the most classic uniforms in all of baseball
Buddy Bell. Went to old Arlington Stadium in 1987.
...and waking up one morning to see the front and back page of all the papers about
Nolan Ryan's 7th career no-hitter!!
all those "Swingin' A's" of the 70's!!!
All that talent was sprinkled around the league in the late 70s and most of the teams they wound up on became winners themselves. Those A's could have won two more. You can look it up!
BILLYBALL featuring Rickey Henderson.
I think Reggie Jackson's #9 Oakland jersey is in my top 3 all-time!
LOS ANGELES ANGELS of ANAHEIM
My personal favorite trio was the Edmonds-J.T. Snow-Salmon edition.
Gene Autry, late great owner!
Just in case anyone is wondering, they are going to turn 50 years old next year! Yep.
The 1995 playoff vs the NY Yankees was one of the best playoff series Ever!
Edgar Martinez has a lifetime pass on the Trolley.
When baseball expanded in 1977 with this team and Toronto, I accepted this team quicker. I thought Mariners was a cool name and "Neptune's" M was a cool logo.
Alvin Davis and Ken Griffey Jr.
See the last post for the National League. Grab a team or teams and triple up on the warmth we all have for baseball. Before we all start to go out our friggin minds that is. Don't forget to bring goodies to share.
Enjoy the fire everybody.
