My Dad

It all began in 1957. My dad, then a child, was watching the Milwaukee Braves-New York Yankees World Series with my grandfather. When asked why he was pulling for the Braves, my dad replied: “I hate the Yankees.”
That began what has thus far been two generations of Yankee-hating. In 1962 the Mets came to town. In 1979 so did I.

And the rest is history.

A big day all around. First beloved mascot Mr. Met gets to meet his hero, the man behind Willie Ball; then Mike Pelfrey make his first start in the bigs!
