Last night I got a most unexpected email from longtime reader of this blog, Ron Hromisin. Turns out, the World Series trophy was back in my old stomping grounds this weekend, and Ron was there to see it.
Al Santasiere, who co-wrote the official retrospective of the old Yankee Stadium, was at Misericordia University — near Scranton in a town called Dallas — for a book signing. The trophy came with him.
“My family and I returned a short time ago from what was the thrill of a lifetime,” Ron wrote. “There it was in all it’s glory, for the first time ever outside of NYY Stadium!!!”
All three exclamation points were Ron’s, and every one of them seemed necessary.
