Thanks for the support, tonight was wonderful as well! Hoping we can finish it off in 4. There are few things in a baseball fans life better than whopping up on the Bankees.

There's a wonderful essay in today's NY Times nat'l edition about a native Detroiter going home with some anxiety about seeing a game at Comerica Park instead of Briggs/Tiger Stadium, where I also attended my first MLB games.

I'm old enough to have seen Mantle and Kaline as rookies there, and to treasure a ball autographed by George Kell, so I've been hatin' on the Yankees a long, long time. While I regret Jeter's injury, I'm reveling in the hitting travails of baseball's highest-paid lineup (and bench).

On talk radio this morning, someone said he was flying in for tonight's game, stopping only at a hardware store to pick up a broom. We can only hope....

Being from Northern California, I support the Bay Area teams first, but my next favorite team is "anybody but the Yankees".  Go Tigers!

That was a great article, I went to my first game there too but not till many years after you did. Are you still in the Detroit area?

Nope. Lived there again 1990-96 while Tiger Stadium was still in use, went to a Tigers game the night after my grandmother's memorial service in 1991 with my brothers and cousins, all Detroit natives. Now I wear my Tigers cap during shifts as a golf-course starter to irritate Yankee fans who are common here in upstate NY.

The old ballyard appears in several of Loren Estelman's Amos Walker detective novels, must-reads for Detroiters manque.

As a Yankee fan myself, all I can say is well done to The Tigers. Thoroughly deserved it, one of the best teams in MLB at the moment with the best pitcher and best hitter (if he doesn't get M.V.P I will consider it a disgrace) in my view

I'm not really not much of a baseball fan but congrats to a gritty city on its way back.
That, and any day the Yankees, USC and or Mexico lose is a good day.
