Well it's obvious where you get your way with words. I myself cannot support the Yankees, but I loved the story, thanks Dad for reminding our blogger to get this post up.

You would have seen Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra play. Maybe Whitey Ford or Don Larson pitching. Remember what a shock it was to see the green grass after watching games on a small b/w TV all those years(channel 11)?

Yep, Mickey and Yogi were in that game. I believe Don Larsen started the game but was relieved at some point by either Tom Sturdevant or Bobby Shantz. It's been so long! Speaking of watching the games on TV, remember Mel Allen, Red Barber, Phil Rizzuto and "Hey fans, give the three ring sign, and ask the man for Ballintine". Talk about dating oneself!

Great story Dad! Thanks so much for sharing.
