Last night we stayed in Jamaica, New York and had some problems with our internet. Anyways, so we saw the Yankees game last night and it was almost called due to rain. We purchased bleacher tickets in advance and found out the hard way that if you buy bleacher seats that you can only see the bleacher area. So, we did not get to see the rest of the stadium and monument park. The bleacher seats were a fun atmosphere though. The fans out there do a roll call during the 1st inning where they chant each Yankee players name until that player acknowledges them. That was pretty neat to see. The day before that we saw Kris Benson’s first start of the year at Shea and it was a great game as Piazza hit a home run (watch it here). The ball park seemed more open in person. The day before that we were in Cooperstown where we fortunately got to meet the President of the hall of fame Dale Petroskey. We talked alittle baseball with him and then The Vice president Jeff Idelson took some time out of his busy schedule to show us around alittle bit. As you can imagine we were in awe of the whole hall of fame. One cool exhibit we got to see was, they have a baseball from every no hitter since the hall of fame opened in 1939. We have pictures but we can’t update them right now so be on the lookout.
