  2. Lou's bat & Yankee name

    I heard somewhere, and can't remember where, that someone who took the YS tour was told by the guid that the bat on the flag pole was one of Lou's bats that was treated(bronzed?) and put on top of the flag pole, the handle shows the wind direction. I also can't remember how the name "YANKEES" was chosen as the team name to replace "HIGHLANDERS". Am I getting old? say its not so. :gulp: :confused: :scared: :(

  3. Name a former Yankee who reminds you of Giambi...

    Baseball seems to have its cycles, and although the names change, I feel sometimes like the cast of characters is essentially the same. Before Mark Fidrych there was Ralph Terry and Dizzy Dean. Before Barry Bonds there was Reggie Jackson. I'm trying to think if there's a former Yankee in the Jason Giambi mold. A fun-loving, lefty-swinging, big-muscled first baseman? Bill "Moose" Skowron was a righty, and I don't know anything about his personality really... Anyone come to mind for you...

  14. If your interested in baseball nostalgia........

    I have an interesting site that I just discovered and perhaps some of you are already aware of. It's called, thedeadballera.com and has unusual information about ballplayers over the past 100 years. It even includes places they are buried, how they died, and tributes to many of them like Babe Ruth and Thurman Munson. Try it!
