This is the antithesis of the Yankees vs. the Astros. Normally, they fall behind, fall farther behind, lose. Or get ahead, and the bullpen gives up tying and winning runs. Here, fall behind early, come back, stop an 8th inning rally with the Astro tying runs on base, and now adding tack-ons in the 9th (homer, opposite field single, double off the wall, double down the line) to nail shut Houston's coffin. I love it.

I'm not sure even Chapman could walk and hit nine guys!

Volpe is looking pull happy. Somebody show him some Jeter clips.

You asked for it, you got it! Single to right. Warms my heart.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
