I love baseball. I love everything about it. I think I know every stat on every player ever! I especially love going to the ballpark with my dad. We’ve been going to watch the Yankees since I can remember. We have our own jerseys and everything. Dad’s says Rodriguez on the back cuz he’s a big A-Rod fan and mine, of course, says Jeter. We wear our ball caps and I take my glove incase I catch a ball that flies into the stands. I came close once but I wasn’t tall enough and this big guy by my dad caught it.
I love when we first walk inside Yankee Stadium with the smell of the hotdogs and popcorn and the excitement in the air. We always sit in the nosebleed section. My dad calls it that cuz it’s so high up in the stands. We make a big game of who can climb the stairs the fastest. I always win. It’s way fun up there. The game starts and everyone really gets into it and then the guy comes around with hotdogs and soda and my dad always buys me some. I don’t think there’s a hotdog around that tastes better than the ones at the ballpark.....
