I had a wonderful time in New York in our Baseball trip. There was five of us in our group, four women and a guy. At Yankee Stadium we ran into friends
Here in the picture, George, Rosie, Lorena & me. Natalie that we run into her in New York and Trinidad.
Everywhere we go, Yankee fans were saying how much they love Mattingly.
I love this picture taken by Jon SooHoo of Mattingly and Mariano Rivera.
Joe from Brooklyn in the white Dodgers shirt with his Brooklyn hat and his umbrella. Also in the picture Turtledip & her boyfriend, Bob Bacon, Serena and her dad Joe, Lorena. If you know anyone else, please ID. We saw Dodger fans walking by and we asked them to be in the picture like the guy with the sombrero.
We visited Jackie Robinson’s grave. At the entrance we met Mr. T who when we asked him where Jackie Robinson’s grave he said “Is a long way up there…I can give you a ride there so we squeeze the five of us plus Mr. T in his Jeep Cherokee.
We lid a candle for the Dodgers at the Cathedral of St Patrick. I bought a St. Christopher’s medallion and a chain for me plus some other souvenirs. I looked for St. Rita’s medallion but they did not have it.
We visited the statue of Jackie Robinson and Pee Wee Reese at the site where the Brooklyn Cyclones play
We went to visit the former site of Ebbets Field.
I had to take a picture with Hilda Chester, the original Dodger fan.
Met a Giant fan that wanted for us to take a picture putting up our dukes.
I became a member of the Hall of Fame museum so I got my ticket free after paying $40 for membership, a $10 discount offered while we there.
We visited Citi Field where the Mets were playing the Cubs.
In the picture is Miss Puiggy who is traveling with me now. She has visited Citi Field, Yankee Stadium and now Petco Park and of course Dodger Stadium is her home stadium.
I was going to include the pictures of San Diego but I’ll wait for more pictures from Sunday and besides I forgot my camera at home but I do have my i-phone. Lorena will share some pictures.
The All-Star game is in New York on 7/16. Yankees come to Dodger Stadium 7/30 & 7/31 and Dodgers travel to Toronto 7/22 to 7/24. I’ve been to Rogers Centre when in 2007 I was sent to Toronto for a few days. The Blue Jays were in town playing against the Red Sox so I went to a game and saw Daisuke Matsuzaka pitch.
