Swept Away

For the fourth straight ALCS playoff game, the New York Yankees’ bats fell dormant, falling to Detroit 8-1.  For the second time in six years, the Tigers are going to World Series.

In fact, the last time the Tigers made it there, they knocked off both the Yankees and the Oakland Athletics. They just might face the St. Louis Cardinals again too. For the Yankees, the game was a fitting end to their offensive nightmare of a postseason, and now an unpredictable offseason looms.

Thirty one years after the Beatles first landed in the United States, another famous quartet touched down for the first time in the summer of 1995. That year, under manager Buck Showalter, the Yankees won the inaugural American League wild card, and the core four all first put on their pinstripes.

For many New York Yankees fans, getting a chance to meet the players, throwing out the first pitch at a game, and having the team throw a party just for you would all be bucket list items; once in a lifetime opportunities that may never be accomplished. On Wednesday, June 27th, Andy Fass did all of those things, and he is only five years old. Andy will start kindergarten in the fall, and he will have a pretty cool story to tell the other kids.
