My Favorite Day at Yankee Stadium, Whitey Ford Day, Sep 9, 1961 I Met Phil Rizzuto and Saw Yogi Berra Nude Accidentally as a 9 Year Old in the locker, Ha Ha!
Now that Yankee Stadium is no more, I’d like to share with you my greatest day in Sports when as a 9 year old living in New York City, on September 9, 1961, on Whitey Ford Day, my father who did advertising for one of the New York Yankees clients, got us first row box seats and an invitation to watch the Mel Allen show live in person. Those were the good old days and I worshiped everything about the Yankees then. Eventually I discovered girls and I lost interest in baseball and the Yankees. But my late father used to take me to a lot of baseball games when I was a kid and those were my best times with him.
I stopped following baseball 30 years ago and only know about 25 players names but the one player’s name I can’t forget is Manny Ramirez ex-Boston Red Sox Star and current Los Angeles Dodgers for possibly all of 2 months. The perception about Ramirez outside of Boston is he’s an idiot and a jerk and a great baseball player but the guy is a financial genius.
I grew up in New York City in the 1960/70’s and as a kid and later a teen, the New York Yankees and New York Mets were my life before I discovered girls. Baseball was my favorite sport and I’d go to endless baseball games a year as well as watch most of the games on WPIX and WOR, the local New York Stations. Today, I hate Major League Baseball and simply don’t follow it. Basketball and football are my sports now. I don’t think I’m alone.
