it was Spring 1959...preparing for my 1st year of little league
baseball in this small Indiana town....my Dad took me to the local theatre to see a newsreel of the previous year's world serieswith
all the other little leaguers & their dads.

the powerful Yankees of course won that series & I rode home
with Dad chatting about how awesome those Yanks were! He
just muttered too himself in an irksome manner.

Once we arrived home Dad sat my little butt down & explained
to me why WE were White Sox fans...& if I ever said anything
good about the dammmed Yankees again I could look for
another place to live...it wasn't long after that he took me to
a Sox Yankees game on a Sunday afternoon.........I was in
awe of Comiskey & in love with the Sox

Yanks won that day 12 to 7 drattt!!!
