My contribution to Alex Belth's wonderful Bronx Banter series on Yankee Stadium is up today; check it out. It was a real honor to be asked to take part along with so many distinguished writers. One thing that has struck me in following the series is how formative the bleachers have been for so many of the contributors. The opportunity to sit close to the field, at minimal cost, and to be part of a community is really priceless. One of the things I fear about the new ballpark is that this opportunity will be dramatically compromised. Anyway, enjoy the piece.
