Father And Son Carry On The Baseball Tradition

My Son and I are Yankees fans (pictured here at Wrigley Field in Chicago on Friday June 6th, 2003 when the Yanks beat the Cubs 5-3 while playing them for the first time in 60 years-it was the first time the Yankees played under the lights there), as we carry on the tradition of rooting for the team that was a favorite of my father's; no we are not from New York (my son lives in Arizona and I am in Illinois)...but my Dad was a Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig fan as a youth: I was in little league growing up but track became my sport of choice and I went on to consistently win or place in many high and low hurdle contests...but I always followed baseball...my son became very good at baseball and stayed with it from t-ball through the end of highschool. We now try to get together at least once a year to take in a Yankees game in New York at Yankees Stadium...and so to those good times with my son, RJ, this blog is devoted
