Freddy “Sez” Schuman died over the weekend. Interestingly his last game was ALDS Game 3, which I was at. That completes the latest Yankee death trifecta including Bob Sheppard and George Steinbrenner. It’s amazing how iconic a spoon hitting that frying pan has become.

From the NY Times obituary for Yankee Stadium announcer Bob Sheppard: “The Yankees and Bob Sheppard were a marriage made in heaven,” said Paul Sheppard, a 71-year-old financial adviser. “I know St. Peter will now recruit him. If you’re lucky enough to go to heaven, you’ll be greeted by a voice, saying: ‘Good afternoon, ladies […]
Some iPhone photos I took at the Yankee Museum @ Yankee Stadium
Here’s a video of the New Yankee Stadium. This is the first I’ve seen of it actually having an infield, as opposed to a dirt pit with construction scraps all over. Looks like it’s almost ready. Monument park in the old stadium has been disassembled.

The media is nonstop with the parallels to 9/11, and for good reason (burning skyline, plane, Oct 11), but there are other strange examples of reliving history that come to my mind: Empire State Building was at one […]
At the Yankee game today Pavano got hit in the head with a rather hard hit. Couldn’t see at the time that it was to the head though. They never replayed it on the screen (a sign it was a bad hit). Saw Joe Torre run out rather quick, so you knew it wasn’t good. […]
Eddie Layton passed away. It was strange seeing someone else on the big screen at Yankee Stadium. He definitely had something to do with the overall feel of the ballpark.
YANKEES WIN!!! Most likely one of the more interesting games to watch. Exciting waiting for the Babe to come by and rape the Red Sox once again. Always fun seeing that happen. The Red Sox are on the way back to Boston, where it’s 1918 24x7x365. WOOT Oh yea… Red Sox Suck
