Bronx Bombers Bring Home 27th Title
And my memory this day goes back to May 10, 1956. Day after my birthday and me and Pop celebrated by taking in my first game at old Yankee stadium. Fella by the name of Mantle hit a home run off of a Cleveland pitcher named Lemon and I thought that was the funniest name I had ever heard.
That year, the Yanks beat the Dodgers 4 games to 3, and we were scheduled to be at game 5 but I came down with the chicken pox so we missed Don Larson's perfect game.
53 years, a new stadium later, and the old ball club wins another one. #27.
Congrats to them, and to Yankee fans the world over.
