Hello to Mike’s grandmother in Oneonta

I just received a great e-mail I’d like to share with you:

Mike from Oneonta, N.Y.., wrote to tell me that his 89-year-old grandmother is a Yankees fan who reads the blog.

He writes:

“I’ve set up a computer at her house where she can click a shortcut on the desktop and it opens up your blog. I started it last August, and she’s been keeping up with it nearly every day. Granted, I don’t think she’ll be logging in and posting anytime soon, but she’s doing
OK for an old lady! I can’t tell you how great it’s been to discuss Philip Hughes and Igawa and Minky with her during our daily lunches.”

That made my day. I think one of the best things about baseball is how it is handed down from one generation to the next. My late grandfather managed his company’s semipro team and I used to love asking him questions about players he saw before I was born.

So hello to Mike’s grandmother and thanks for reading. Enjoy the season, pitchers and catchers will be here before you know it.
