new york yankees...
in 1960 the yankees were the only team in town and so there was really no choice for me what team to support. i grew up 8 blocks south of ebbets field and my only memory is sitting on my front stoop and suddenly hearing the roar of a crowd. i asked my grandfather, whats that, he said thats the dodgers. some boys on the block a couple of years old then me continued to be dodger fans after they left brooklyn. if i remember correctly they would listen to dodger games on the radio that came on late in new york time.
in the mid 1960s a pigtown neighbor from east new york ave frank tepedino played for the yankees. he would walk to the subway on sterling and nostrand to take the subway to the stadium. we would sometimes go to sunday games to watch him play, but with those yankee teams he didnt get all that much playing time.
