Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Last Saturday was the 70th Annual Old-Timers Day at Yankee Stadium. Bubba Crosby was there, donning pinstripes again for the first time in ten years.
At 39, he was the youngest "old timer" there.
He played left field.
And batted ninth.
Some of the other old timers in attendance: David Cone, Hideki Matsui, Ralph Terry, Hector Lopez, Don Larsen.
Bernie Williams got a warm welcome.
Hideki Matsui hit a home run. David Cone promised to give him something hittable, and he did. (After sending him a message by throwing above his head - "retaliation" for Matsui's saying watching Cone pitch in the post-season made him realize he could hit in MLB.)
