I posted this pic on Facebook this morning, but I also thought it belonged here. See what’s at the very bottom of the photo? Yup, it’s a copy of my book, the basis for this blog. My friend Patty LaDuca, who edited all those Yankees-related pieces I wrote for The New York Times sports section, happened to be at Yogi’s museum last week, snapped the photo and sent it to me last night. What a thrill!
It’s always gratifying to know that a book has a life after all the promotion for it dies down and it’s long since been published, and Confessions of a She-Fan‘s appearance at the museum is no exception. Following the Yankees to every game in every city for the second half of the 2007 season was a highlight of my life, and I’d do it again tomorrow.
Otherwise, nothing much new in Yankeeville to report except that Aroldis Chapman, our new closer, will not be charged with domestic violence and firing a weapon, apparently. Now it’s up to MLB whether he’ll incur a suspension. Stay tuned.
