Avid Sports fan. Love baseball, basketball and football. College basketball over the NBA, but baseball is my passion. Played some minor league baseball as a catcher until an injury ended my dream. 35 yrs coaching baseball at all levels,. Last was senior AAU. Had nine former players get Scholarships, one of which was my youngest son. One playing pro ball in the Pirates organization. I'm an AVID DUKE fan, have been since I could crawl. Unerring respect for Coach Mike krzyzewski, whom I think is the best of the best in basketball. Including the NBA. I'm also a AVID Yankees fan. My first memories of ML baseball was Mantle's triple crown year in 1956. I was playing Little League that season, and had those wonderful childhood dreams.
Sorry for the belated repsonse, Larry-- happy holidays to you too! I guess time will tell with Giancarlo Stanton. I might just be a bit gun-shy about sluggers and strikeout rates after watching the past few Yankees teams!
