’70 yankees 2nd to none! Bombers finished behind Orioles, but it was start of a rebirth in Bronx

Here is an interesting article about the 1970 Yankees from New York Daily News. The article was written by Robert Dominguez of the daily News.
It was an interesting article of what is considered to be part of the “Dry Years” for the New York Yankees, even with some of the good talent that the team had during that year.

Recent Memorabilia Images

I don’t have to go into detail about the last several months. They were stressful enough for everyone.

Aside from seeking more work, I did manage my free time wisely. Busy assisting around the house, basic chores and my memorabilia.
It has been a fun journey chatting with a good friend of mine about collectables and memorabilia, mostly around baseball.

This is the collection thus far. I hope everyone can share what they have been doing as a hobby to release some stress.

Dark Clouds of 2020

While looking at some Atlantic League stats and Long Island Ducks stats, there came an eerie feeling when I noticed the line for 2020. A simple sentence “cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic”. While this nothing new over the last several months, it just seemed so strange not to be able to attend any of my favorite teams games nor participate in other events and normal life situations.
Hoping for a better tomorrow and a brighter future!

2018 The Long Island Ducks hosted the Atlantic League All-Star Game
2019 The Long Island Ducks celebrated their 20th Anniversary as a team in The Atlantic League of Professional Baseball and won the Atlantic League Championship, beating Sugar Land Skeeters 3 games to 2 in a best of 5 series. The Long Island Ducks won their fourth championship title in 2019.
