Are you the biggest Yankees or Red Sox fan?

Spring of 2004 (possibly '03).  Friday night of the first season series with the Red Sox.  Jose Contreras on the mound for the Yankees.  I'm sitting in the first row of Section AA between third and left field.  It was pouring rain off and on for the whole game.  Contreras was getting shelled (surprise, surpries).  The Yankees were down 10-2 in the 7th and half the row of fans next to us were total Red Sox haters  (actually we probaly all were, but they were verbal).  Not the least bit embarrased or ashamed by the score about 10 of those guys leaned over the rail right above Manny and for an entire half inning, despite the NYY's horribly pitched game, screamed, non-stop "Manny, you suck!".  Manny kept looking up and smiling.  He even waved once.  What a loser!  Great moments in a really bad game:)


 


 

How do the Yankees win their 28th World Series?  A game at a time!  Yanks!!!!!!

On Sunday, October 1, 1961, I attended my first Yankees home game at the original Yankee Stadium. It was my 10th birthday present from my Father. I had been a Yankees fan since 1957 season When I heard Bob Sheppard's voice over the Stadium PA system, it was unblievable. I saw Yankees RF Roger Maris hit Home Run #61 off of Boston starter Tracy Stallard to set a new MLB HR record as the  New York Yankees finished the 1961 American League season with a 1-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Yankees starter Bill Stafford picked up the victory for the Yankees with relief help from the Yankees bullpen. I sat in the Yankee Stadium left field bleachers with my Father. We yelled out to Yankees LF Yogi Berra, who turned around and waved back to us. I was able to see starter Bill Monquette warm up in the Red Sox bullpen. My only regret was that I wasn't able to see my favorite Yankee player CF Mickey Mantle play, because he was injuried. After the game, we were not allowed to go on to the Yankee Stadium playing field, because the 1961 World Series against the Cincinnati Reds was starting later that week.

I am a lifelong Yankee fan from Long Island married to a lifelong Red Sox fan from Boston. We have been happily married for 25 years, mostly due to the fact that we do not watch baseball together. We subscribe to MLB Extra Innings, so we can each see our own team play every day. I watch the Yankees on YES in our family room and he watches the Red Sox on NESN outside on our back patio. Even when the Yankees play the Red Sox, we watch the same game but on 2 different channels in the same house. Our families know that for their own good, they should not schedule any family outings during a Yankee-Red Sox series.


My favorite Yankee memory growing up was watching the one game playoff on the black and white TV in my bedroom and watching my favorite player Bucky Dent bury the Red Sox with one of his very infrequent home runs. My favorite moment from last season was watching my daughter's favorite player Derek Jeter get his 3000th hit with a game of a lifetime - even though these memories happened 33 years apart, I know she felt just as giddy watching Derek's special day as I did watching Bucky's.


I love when MLB Network replays that 1978 game, with commentary from Bucky, Sweet Lou and Mike Torrez. I record it on every TV in the house, and try to sneak it on when my husband's not paying attention. I can fast forward to the exact spot where he hits the home run, listen to The Scooter call it, and switch back to regular TV in about a minute!!


 


That's a great memory except for one MINOR DETAIL. Scooter didn't make the call on the home run. It was Bill White.

Growing up in Boston my first game was 9/19/73 at Fenway, Tiant v. Stottlemeyer both pitchers went the distance.  Nettles hit one out.


I took my kids to their first game in August 2006 at the big ballpark in the Bronx.  It was the day after ground breaking for the new stadium.   It was the low point of AROD's career, he and Jeter collided on a pop-up, both of them missing the ball.  On a high note Damon lead-off with a homerun as just as my daughter predicted he would.  Cano also hit one out.  It was hat day, I still have it, it has faded from navy to grey, I wear it ever time I jog.  The next day the Yankees swept a doubleheader at Fenway on their way to a five game sweep.
