Doubtless there are better places to spend summer days, summer nights than in ballparks, doubtless.
Never the less, decades after a person has stopped collecting bubblegum cards he can still discover himself collecting ballparks. And not just the stadiums, but, their surrounding neighborhoods, their smells their special seasons and moods. Quaint sure, beautiful not really. However when the sun is bright and the air is crisp and your seat seems closer than the on deck circle.... all is forgiven.

YES! Couldn't agree more! Go SOX and take me back to Landsdowne Street. \:\) One Hundred Years on the 20th, baby!

Eutaw Street for me. Smelling Boog's BBQ watching batting practice from the flag court. Making note of the bronze baseballs placed on Eutaw St of all home runs ever hit out there between the wall and the warehouse. It never gets old.

That is the most beautiful ballpark I've ever seen.

Not the best year for the Red Sox. But remember that we're only half way through the season. Remember the '51 Giants? 13.5 games back on August 11th, but finished the season by beating the Dodgers for the pennant. My point is, you never know what may or may not happen.

The Yankers are just that. However, I admire them and salute them. \:\)

PS... you should use the quote button which would have included my original text. I actually had to go back and find my original post. ;\)

I've got to say one thing though. At least the New York Yankees actually play in New York City. As opposed to the New York Giants and New York Jets who play in (wait for it...) New Jersey!

Yeah, but the Yankees will be in the World Series again this year, this time against the Washington Nationals, thanks to the Zimmermans (Ryan and Jordan, not George) and Mr. Applegate.

Don't know who the Red Socks are. I follow the Red Sox. ;\) BTW, I grew up in Boston. What team would follow if you grew up there?

Serious question... how is Mariano Rivera doing? Any word?

Gotta love last night's finish in Fenway.
