Man, how I loved me some Gator when I was a kid.

Word. I loved Righetti too. Great site, BTW. Also, that retronaut.co site is amazing.

Is Gator still driving Yogi around during Spring Training? There was a great piece in the NYT about that, I believe in 2010.

2) Funny you should mention that. Harvey Araton has written a book about Yogi and Gator. And we'll have an excerpt up tomorrow.

[3] Cool. Damn Yankees is next on my baseball list. I'm finally reading The Art of Fielding and really enjoying it so far.

anyone hear anything about Marty Appel's new book? Sounds like it's aiming to be sort of *THE* history of the franchise

Hadn't heard of it. There's bound to be a review somewhere in the near future. Highlanders!
