Born and raised in da Bronx, I still love my Yankees. I grew up watching Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Phil Rizzuto (RIP), Elston Howard, "Little" Bobby Richardson, Roger Maris, and expecting the Yankees to be in the World Series every year. I never knew that was in question, thought the only question was who would the Yankees be playing.

My mother used to tease me that I couldn't sew (which I still can't) but knew all the Yankees.

These days, having been out of NY since 1969, I usually root for the Baltimore Orioles, except when they're playing the Yankees...

I'm with Greyson on the Twins. Speaking of autographs, I waited outside Metropolitan Stadium after sneaking under a fence into games. The players came out dressed in suits and would walk you to their car with their arm on your shoulder.

Harmon Killebrew, Bob Allison, Zoilo, Tony Oliva. They all autographed my baseball mitt and I went out and played with it. It didn't end up in a glass case, it just got tossed after much use.

It is strange to run into these guys today in grocery stores and softball fields as ordinary citizens.

I love baseball....thanks to my Daddy watching the Angels all the time! Hey, in the 80's they were awesome! Okay to a four year old they were awesome! It was bonding time for us. Anyway, now that my Daddy is gone I still root for the Angels, but I do love the Braves. Sorry, to hear about your incident, Dr. Livingston. Andrea you are very lucky to have Tom. We sure do miss him!!!!!!

Baseball is my favorite sport. And give me the Bronx Bombers any day! My grandparents were Yankee fans, so I guess it's inherited. I will be very sad when the team moves to their new digs.

The Mets are also building a new stadium right smack up against Shea. It will no longer be called Shea Stadium. It's new name is Citi Stadium. Citibank being the corporate sponsor.

Now, that's sad. Shea has been an institution.

I am not a fan of these new corporate sponsored stadiums popping up everywhere. This year marks the tenth anniversary of Turner Field in Atlanta. I miss the old Fulton County Stadium. It was a thrill as a kid to look in the outfield and see the exact spot where Hank Aaron launched homerun 715 over the fence. History is often overlooked in the pursuit of wealth.

I'm hearing ya dr.

We had the Pepsi Arena for a few years. It's changed so many times since, I can't keep track of what it's even called now.

Atlanta Braves!!!!! Have been a fan for 25 years since I was 6. I liked the Braves even through the rotten years!!! Before the bandwagon jumping.
