  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: Autograph Alert Website

    Hey folks...This is a great website for autograph news. They've also been exposing the falacies of the third party authenticators claiming to be the "industry leading experts" such as JSA, GAI, PSA/DNA and others... http://www.autographalert.com/news.html Very good info!!

  1. Who am I?

    I've played for New York, Detroit and Minnesota teams. I also spent a lot of time playing in Newark and even Tennessee, and also out of this country. I was born in Virginia a long time ago. I turned twenty in my first season of pro ball. I batted and threw right-handed. Some have called me diminutive. I was kind of bow-legged but that didn't matter ... cause many people think I was one of the best defensive third basemen in the history baseball - in any league. I was kind of flashy out...

  3. Baseball Quotations

    Phil Rizzuto "I'll never forget September sixth nineteen-fifty. I got a letter threatening me, Hank Bauer, Yogi Berra and Johnny Mize. It said if I showed up in uniform against the Red Sox I'd be shot. I turned the letter over to the FBI and told my manager Casey Stengel about it. You know what Casey did? He gave me a different uniform and gave mine to Billy Martin. Can you imagine that! Guess Casey thought it'd be better if Billy got shot."

  4. The Best Nicknames In The World of Baseball

    First let me say that the nickname his teammates used for him must of boosted his confidence immensely when he took the mound. In 1937, he led the NL in pitching appearances for Philadelphia with 56, of which 26 were starts... his name is Hugh Mulcahy. I could see it now when one of his teammates would ask the manager "Who's going for us today?" His nickname was "Losing Pitcher" :scared:

  5. Great Yankee photos

    My Brooklyn Dodger fan dude is speaking to me again, at least by way of posting Yankee pix. A long drought, but here are some of the better ones. (check the famous Yankee and you'll recognize his name (hint: he once wore #6 for a year)) Lou Gehrig gently encouraging Babe Dahlgren in the dugout before Dahlgren replaced him as the Yankees' first baseman in Detroit. Gehrig removed himself from the lineup, snapping his consecutive-games-played streak at 2,130.

  6. Favorite Sports Memorabilia you own

    I'd be very interested to hear from other YANKEES fans that have some sort of YANKEES memorabilia. What is your favorite piece? Why? Mine is an autographed 8x10 of my all time favorite YANKEES player, Mickey Mantle. He autographed the photo at a local racetrack while working for one of the AC casinos. When my turn in line arrived, I could hardly contain myself, face to face with my hero. Although told in advance not to ask any questions, I said"Mr. Mantle, which World Series ring are you...

  7. This Day in Baseball History

    1999 ? Joe DiMaggio, baseball's "Greatest Living Player," dies at the age of 84 following a long illness. 1998 ? Yankees trade IF Andy Fox to the Diamondbacks in exchange for P Marty Janzen and Todd Erdos. 1966 ? The Hall of Fame Special Veterans Committee waives election rules and inducts Casey Stengel, recently retired manager of the Mets. 1930

  9. Great Yankee pix

    An original Brooklyn Dodgers fan, who'd seen them in their glory days, posted these on another board. I figured I'd share. :) Yes, some of them are large, so please be patient if you've got an older PC + slow connection. Anyway, I think that some of these are irresistible, and here they are in no particular order: Site of Yankee Staduim 1922 Construction begins 1922

  12. Daily Yankees History

    Note: I've decided it's too cumbersome to make it a huge string with one day added after another. I welcome feedback on that.-K On April 25, 1965, Mel Stottlemyre battled Rudy May of California in a scoreless duel won 1-0 by the Yanks on a fourth-inning Mickey Mantle home run. Two years later to the day, Whitey Ford beat the White Sox at the Stadium, 11-2. He surrendered eight hits and upped his record to 2-1. It was his last major league win. One year ago the Yanks ran into something...

  13. Poll: ALCS ending homers: Chambliss vs. Boone

    I'm specifically asking this question of fans who are old enough to remember both the 1976 ALCS walk-off HR by Chris Chambliss and the 2003 ALCS walk-off HR by Aaron Boone, and who were very into the Yankees at both times. Which of the two HRs was more meaningful to you? I'm only 21, so I wasn't around for the Chambliss HR, and I was wondering how meaningful it was to fans compared to the Boone HR. Obviously, if you're a big fan of the Yanks and were around for both they would both be extremely...

  14. World Series Appreciation Thread - Favorite Memories?

    I thought this might be a fun thread to start. Unlike some of those T-shirts I see at the Stadium, turns out the World Series won't be played in New York this year. To me, this only serves to increase my appreciation of all of the World Series games I've been privileged to attend in person, and how some fans never get to even think about going to a World Series game. As we saw again this year, it's far from easy to get to the Fall Classic, even if your team had a great regular season. So,...

  16. MLBN All-Time Games

    Right now I'm watching Sandy Koufax pitching game 7 of the '65 series against the Twins....on 2 days rest. One would have to be an absolute baseball geek to watch full games from 44 years ago, but it is just too enjoyable to not watch. Love this program and network.
