Yesterday I attended my 16th Old Timers’ Day in a row.
It’s my favorite day of the baseball season and I enjoy it even more than Opening Day because I love the history of the New York Yankees. I like seeing guys I haven’t seen in years and I like seeing the mainstay old timers’ who are there every year.
My Old Timers’ streak is the one streak I will not allow to come to an end. I’ve already screwed up my long opening day streak and my long opening weekend series streak but the Old Timers’ Day streak will stay intact no matter what. I want to be 74 years-old attending my 50th Old Timers’ Day in a row and watching as Derek Jeter slowly jogs out of the Yankees’ dugout with his belt way up high, over his expanding old man belly.
A girl can dream, right?
Anyway, the Old Timers’ game was fun and those players probably would have scored more than the current Yankees did against the Orioles yesterday. Jesse Barfield outscored the Yankees by himself. Yikes.
Feel free to discuss whatever you’d like here. Again, be respectful to your fellow IIATMS readers in the comments and have fun.
