Happy Opening Day!

"Yankee Baseball," by Terry Cashman.

Fun facts:
1) Terry Cashman (born Dennis Minogue), who adapted his classic, "Talkin' Baseball," for the Yanks, was the brother of my 7th grade English teacher, Sister Doris Minogue (who was herself a diehard Mets fan).
2) Cashman later spoofed the song on "The Simpsons."
3) Growing up I owned the "Talkin' Baseball" 45, which replaced "John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt" as my go-to record.

Thanks to Dustin for posting on facebook.
