The book I am reading now. New York Yankee history from Ruth to after the Boss.
The Yankees defeated the Mets 5-4 today, sweeping the cross borough rivals in the 2012 Subway Series, the 15th series overall. The next Subway Series will be held at Citi Field from June 22nd to June 24th.
All my NYC folk know about this. “Take the train to the game”. The number 4 and the 161st Yankee Stadium stop. As a kid whenever I took the number 4 train I always use to look out the window when the train came to the Stadium so I could get a peek of the inside of the Stadium between the little gap in the right field Stadium wall.
