I am not a baseball fan but if I had to choose between the Yankees and the Mets, I'm for the Yanks all the way. I have no justification for this choice besides my dad and brother having overwhelming love for this team. So, after my first time at the new stadium and still in a state of Yankee-bliss, I decided to search me some Yankee photos.
There is a classic sports portrait of Mickey Mantle flinging his batting helmet in the air after a weak day at-bat. This photo made me realize the intense devotion that these players have for their sport. Mantle said, "To play 18 years in Yankee Stadium is the best thing that could ever happen to a ballplayer."
