This was the first Yankee game I ever attended. Three players from the game are still playing today – Derek Jeter, Alfonso Soriano, and Mariano Rivera.
I was a bit of a late bloomer to being a baseball fan – when I was in second grade, someone mentioned that the Yankees were in the 1998 World Series. I had no idea what that meant.
This late September game was one of the starting points to my eventual obsessive fandom.
