  1. Bustin Babes and Larupin Lous

    What were the Bustin Babes and Larupin Lous barnstorming teams? I've seen photos of Babe and Lou in their unis from these teams - were they games they played for charities?

  5. Ken Griffey, Sr.

    I remember when Junior was traded, he refused to come here since he felt his father was mistreated by the Yankees. Can someone tell me what happened? That's been on my mind for awhile. Thx.

  8. Happy Birthday....

    ...to the Big Guy who started it all.:) George Herman "Babe" Ruth turns 107 today. (Though on his terms he would really have been 108 tomorrow, because he didn't bother to change his birthday even when there was evidence to show that he was a year younger and a day older!)

  13. 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.

Bill "Moose" Skowron was a righty, and I don't know anything about his personality really... Anyone come to mind for you...
