First of all I would like to offer my thanks to Steve for giving me the opportunity to join the team, as it were, and also to those who have welcomed me to the clubhouse. I hope to fit in here as a sort of Ramiro Pena —I’ll contribute when and where I can while hoping not to embarrass myself and letting the big sticks in the lineup do most of the talking.
As my brief little bio states I have been a Yankees fan since 1962. I have seen the team bought and sold, torn down and built up,winning World Championships and finishing dead last, all while playing in four different home ball parks. It’s been quite the experience—and continues to be—and I’d be pleased to share a bit of it with you.
