As part of the season preview section in The Journal News, we’re working on stories about the final season at Yankee Stadium. The fans are a big part of that, of course.

If you’re from Westchester, Putnam or Rockland counties in New York and have a story about the Stadium you’d like to share, please contact assistant sports editor Joe Erwin via e-mail. It could be about your first game, a memorable, meeting a player, etc.

    I’ve been to well over 100 games in my life, but by far the most memorable was on October 30, 2001 – Game 3 of the 2001 World Series. It was the first World Series game at Yankee Stadium following the tragic events on September 11. I was a junior in high school at the time, and it was a very scary time. There was so much uncertainty about what the future held for both New York City and the United States of America. It was a tense time, and the security at the Stadium that night was like I have ever seen before. That was in large part because President George W. Bush was going to throw out the first pitch. Regardless of your opinions on President Bush, it was a very powerful moment for me. When he stood out on that mound and gave thumbs up to the crowd, it told me that everything would be OK. Check out the segment form the documentary “9 Innings From Ground Zero” about this moment.

    It’s something I’ll never forget, my favorite moment at Yankee Stadium.

    I was in the stadium for Jim Abbott’s no-hitter but I’m from New Jersey so I guess it doesn’t count!

    To clear MY mind,I would like Roger Clemens to answer ONE (1) other question as to my uncertainty to his telling the TRUTH to CONGRESS AND the public.So as to NOT incriminate HIMSELF ,I will use the TERM “SPORTS” both PROFESSIONAL AND COLLEGE (NOT HIGH SCHOOL &/OR LITTLE LEAGUE),The BIG QUESTION is :Are “SPORTS” OUTCOMES,BOTH, WINNERS AND SCORES PREDETERMINED PRIOR to being PLAYED ?(Call it FIXED if you like,but to my understanding, that term is ILLEGAL to use).I PERSONALLY have studied this TOPIC ,DAILY 14-15 + or – hours,for 15 YEARS,& can PROVE MY RESULTS,with DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE !GUESS MY OUTCOME!Roger,a true answer can,NOT POSITIVALLY,HELP.The true FACT ,is,no matter what,you still had to PERFORM,WHETHER or NOT you MAY have BROKEN RULES!
