Day 22: Cleveland Indians at New York Yankees

A Very Special Day

Jeannie and Debi both have their birthday today, June 26.
My former student, Elizabeth Kim makes it a special day.

Pre-game meal with Elizabeth and her son Tavis at Grisinni restaurant near her home in Englewood Hills, NJ, just across the Hudson River from the Bronx.

Then Elizabeth treated us to a game at Yankee Stadium, and she drove us to the stadium and back.

Monument Park behind center field fence. I have been waiting to see this monument of Mickey Mantle since before there was a monument.

 

Tavis, me, and Babe Ruth.

Derek Jeter hit a single on this pitch. Fans sang Happy Birthday to him. Jeannie thought it was for her. I told her June 26 was Jeter's birthday too.
