I have a bone to pick with Doc Holliday (Well, maybe it’s more with the people of Glenwood Springs, CO) Last week, thanks to the Mets schedule, we had a chance to spend a couple of nights in the Rocky Mountains. Glenwood Springs to be exact. Thursday, after the game, we headed north up 70 through Vail to Glenwood Springs. The scenery was breathtaking. Friday after an awesome walk through the amazing mountain/canyon scenery, we decided to pay our respects at the grave of the m
I’m always asked why I love baseball. There are many reasons, but one of them is the fact that Baseball embraces the history of the sport. It celebrates the players that came before like no other sport. So, maybe with the exception of the White Sox, there is no team that does it better than the Yankees and Old Timers Day.
I wasn’t lucky enough or old enough to have seen Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Whitey Ford, Yogi Berra or even Reggie Jackson play. I was lucky enough t

I have been very lucky over the past 14-plus years to have much written about Foley`s, almost all of it good too! With the Red Sox coming to town, I have decided to honor the very first man to write about Foley`s, Jeff Horrigan. When I first met Jeff, he was with the Boston Herald, we became fast friends before there even was a Foley’s. When I got to what was then called “PG Kings,” I couldn’t tell anyone that I was in the process of buying it. That, however, didn’t stop Jef
This week we are not honoring a person or even a team but rather a band of brothers. We are honoring the men that wear black and blue, the men who take the abuse in the ballpark, but without whom they don’t play baseball. we are honoring MLB Umpires, many of whom I am proud to call my friends. Foleys is known as an umpires bar and I love that it. That means that they feel comfortable and welcome here. We hope to be a home away from home for them, because even more than play

This week we honor our good friend and long time beat writer for the Rays, Marc Topkin. Through two owners, two name changes for the paper, two different names for the team and five managers, Topper's been at the center of Tampa baseball. That’s a lot of baseball and a lot of time spent in the Trop! Topper's the guy who we always keep the kitchen open for after game. A couple of years ago his lovely wife Sue was in town and at Foley`s waiting for Marc. I asked Sue if Marc
It’s Subway Series time again! I have to say I’m a fan always have been. Of course, I have some great memories of the raucous atmospheres, granted mostly at the Old Yankee Stadium and at Shea. I remember sitting with my brother (a Mets fan, God love him) at Game 2 of the 2000 World Series, when Mike Piazza tried to “hit,” Roger Clemens with his bat. I also remember taking my son Ryan to a game when he was six or seven. Back then he would root for both teams, but he had his fa
