Yankees-Red Sox (Brookline, MA, May 1998, and Bronx, NY, probably late 1940s)
I've got my father on my mind much of the time now, for the obvious reasons. He visited in 1998, just six months before my mother died, to go to 2 Yankees-Red Sox games at Fenway with me. I had bought scalped tickets, pretty nice seats. All of his life he was a huge Yankees fan, and until he was 22, he lived minutes from Yankee Stadium. Below are 3 shots he took of the Stadium. I was amazed to learn that he hadn't been to a major league game since then, his whole life.
