Baristaville Baseball Junkies, Step Up To The Plate!

Ygoi_museum This Sunday March 26, at 1p.m. the Yogi Berra Museum  is hosting a huge pow-wow of baseball know-it-alls and you are invited to join in...What's the impact of the steroid scandal for  Barry Bonds? Is  Kaz Matsui the worst-ever foreign investment? And can Johnny Damon find love, stardom, and centerfield in Yankee Stadium?  Steve Goldman, and eight editors of the Baseball Prospectus 2006, will be at the museum to discuss the controversies and offer up their predictions for the upcoming season. The roundtable discussion will take place in the museum's very cool stadium-like theatre. Ask the experts anything you've ever wanted to know.  Fantasy Baseball players - bring your notebooks - it's an excellent recon opportunity for your fantasy team.

To win a couple of free tickets to Sunday's event, be the first one to correctly answer this question:

"Who is the only man to play for the Yankees, the Knicks, and the Rangers in the same year?"

After the fact-finding mission is over, check out the autographed Yankees Cow and see Yogi's personal collection of diamond-studded championship rings.

And this famous "Yogi-ism" will make sense if you're familiar with Highland Avenue in Montclair:    

"When you come to a fork in the road, take it."

And what, or who, are you, Joe?

Are you supposed to be the voice of intellectual discourse?

Joe, Joe, you've attempted to detract from Tracy's well-earned trimph above. Not cool.

You've got to stop hitting the sangria before noon. I recommend Ambien instead.

the "fork in the road" is actually at edgewood road and edgewood terrace, west of upper mountain, on the way to highland ave.

Tracy, you win! Eddie Layton, the exuberant organist, played for all three teams. He died at the age of 78 in 2004. Tracy, congrats. Contact Baristanet to claim your tickets!

Is Joe any relation to Fred Beans, the car salesman in Southern NJ?

Posted by: MyManMisterC | Mar 24, 2006 3:53:34 PM

I dunno, he reminds me more of Freddie Blase.

Posted by: Miss Martta | Mar 24, 2006 3:56:12 PM

Classy Freddie Blasie. "YOU PENCIL-NECKED GEEK!"

Posted by: MyManMisterC | Mar 24, 2006 6:05:04 PM

LOL...love the polyester blazer, Blasie!
