  2. Frank Crosetti

    I' m old enough to remember Crow who really did well financially with a combination of being frugal and being there when the Yankees won a lot of world championships. One thing that may not have been mentioned: Crow was self conscious about his bald head and would stay hidden in the dugout during the national anthem so he wouldn't have to expose his noggin to the fans. No rogaine in those days???:cool:

  6. Greatest Yankees Ever

    This may sound kind of odd, but I'm trying to put together a roster file for a baseball computer game. And one of the teams that I'd like to create is a Greatest Yankees Ever team. I'm sure I'll be able to find a website with accurate stats, but I'd like to get the fans opinions on who the greatest Yankees ever are. Please select two of the best at each fielding position, as well as 10 starting pitchers and 10 relief pitchers. Please set up you roster like this:

  8. Question about Centerfield

    I was talking to my Dad this weekend and we were racking our brains trying to remember who played Centerfield before Bernie . . . we never did come up with a satisfactory answer. Anyone out there know? I'm sure I could research it but I figure this is probably faster. For some reason I'm just drawing a blank.

  9. The so-called "called shot" according to the Cro

    1932... World Series... Cubs/Yankees... Babe Ruth/Charlie Root... There was bad blood between the Yankees and Cubs before this series even got off the ground. Mark Koening, the ex-1926-28 star SS for the Yankees had been aquired from the PCL late in the season by the Cubs and had batted .353 in 33 games for them. As great as he played though down the critical stretch, he was only voted a half share by the Cubs. Babe Ruth and the '32 Yanks had been riding the Cubs at every turn. Even...

    Hello, I am compiling the funny, poignant stories and memories of diehard Yankee fans for a book.

I'm asking about things that you've done with friends, family, church, synogogue, school, pets, etc.that have to do with your love of the Yankees. I'm on a tight deadline so would appreciate hearing from all you wonderful Yankee fans.

    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.

  20. 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!)
