Links of Note

We have a few links that have been sent to us that we would like to share with you all. Over on Lady at the Bat Radio there's an interview with Charleston River Dog ambidextrous pitcher, Pat Venditte. The man is pretty interesting and its cool that he's doing interviews with fans like this.

I also have a link to a website for a book about the 1978 world series run written from the perspective of a fan titled "The Greatest Comeback Ever". The book sounds interesting, and the sites worth checking out.

Lastly, the Celebrities for Charities foundation is auctioning off two tickets in a luxury suite for a Yankees Red Sox game. The grand prize includes the following:

-Winner will receive 2 Tickets to Yankee Stadium's Legends Suite for the Yankees August 8, 2009 game against the Red Sox. (First Pitch at 4:10 pm)
-Winner will receive 1 nights stay at the Marriott Marquis Times Square in New York City (August 8, 2009, Single Room, Double Occupancy)
-Winner will receive a $250 travel voucher
-Winner will receive a cash prize in the amount of 758.96 to mitigate the
-Winner's tax liability that results from winning the raffle. This prize is withheld and paid, on behalf of the Winner, directly to the IRS ($627.24) and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts ($131.72).

The drawing is on August 5, and its $2.00 per ticket for a minimum of 5 tickets. The proceeds go to Rosie's Broadway Kids, which promotes the arts.

Who needs Legends seats when you can sit in section 323 and get the cushy, padded seats there! I went to the stadium for the first time on Wed and was pleasantly surprised to find out just how comfortable the seats were.

Michael Kay quote of the night.
"Most of the fans are on their feet, cheering for either the Yankees or the Marlins" Michael, did they have another choice?

Steve, I think you should email your question to the Joe Girardi Show.
