    Interesting story. I'm sorry to hear the NY Yankees are holdouts. They were my Dad's favorite team. He was a big baseball fanatic. Like him I was a Yankees fan.

    He'd take me to a box at first base in the old Yankee Stadium when I was a little kid. (There weren't luxury skyboxes in those days) And dress me up in Yankees jackets and caps. I got to meet all the big baseball stars of that day, who knew my Dad.

    But I guess owners change. I hope the Yankees finish at the bottom of the league this year. icon_razz.gif

    Thanks Art for the walk down memory lane. Yeah, could you believe the great Yankees would be hold out?
