Hi everyone. I just registered. I used to post on the bulletin board at the Yankee site as Michele. This is quite a change.
Question-how do you post a players pic under your user name? I like that feature.

Hey, gang: I've been lurking over at the "new, improved" Yankees site, and because of problem after problem trying to post, have finally given up.
I'm glad to see some old names from the old (remember Bob Sheppard's voice welcoming us to the site?) forum!
I feel like I"m home!

How long has this site had this new look? I love all of these new features. Anyway, it looked so good, that I had to register.

If I never see that MLB Yankees.com site again, it'll be too soon. I was stuck in this Kafka-esque loop trying to log in and post a message. Incredibly frustrating.

Anyway, I'm sorry to say that I had never bothered to look in here. I was a poster at the original Yankees.com board, but almost all the old-timers from that board are gone.

This site has had several major design changes. This overall design came about during the playoffs last fall, and it's been refined since then. Overall, it is the 3rd design that this site has had, and the first that I'm 100% happy with - that's why it hasn't changed yet ;). And I'm sure I'll find something I don't like about it sooner or later...

I am new to this board as well. I am a Yankee fan living in the western part of Mass, the heart of Red Sox country! As you can tell by the user name Thurman was my favorite Yankee as a kid playing ball. Baseball is very near and dear to my heart as I have been umpiring games since I was 15 years old.It's how I participate now because I don't have time to play in a mens league. Hope this site is as good as my friends told me it was... Anyway HELLO ALL!

Just as many of you, I have come here from Yankees.com. Trying to get used to the new way of doing things around here! It is great to see some of the old names I grew to know and love. It is also great to see discussion and not so much bashing. Looking forward to a good season and readings from everyone. Talk to all soon!

Hi Jim. As you can tell by my sign-in name, I'm Italian-American. Have followed the Yanks since 1973, when my favorite player was Bobby Murcer and I thought the announcers were calling Thurman Munson "Herman Munster."
Live on the border of NJ and PA and attend 15-20 games a year. Love your site, it's the best one I've seen on the Yanks.

Hi! I just found this website tonight. It's great to find a place where Yankee fans can gather and chat. My name is Kathy and I have been a Yankees' fan my whole life. I love them win or lose ( although it's alot more fun when they win ). As you probably can tell Paul O'Neill is my favorite player. My daughter says I'm worse than she is about 98 Degrees. When Paul comes up to the plate whole family knows it. I hope we can have alot of great discussions here. Anyway GO YANKEES!!!!!!

I have been totally lax in welcoming newcomers to this board. People were kind enough to welcome me when I registered here back in December, so shame on me for not welcoming those folks who registered since then. But I've been hesitant to join the "welcoming committee" because I didn't know how die-hard Yankees fans would react to a newbie Yankees fan :NY: :) :NY: who still sometimes sort of roots for the Orioles :eek: :o but is liking the Yankees more and more every day.

Hey everyone! I'm new here too. I've been a Yankees fan since 1996 (don't know why I didn't become one sooner!) and, as you can tell by my screen name, I'm a huge fan of Mike Stanton (with Luis Sojo following a close second). I finally got to go to my first Yankees game on opening day this year, and, despite the fact that I didn't get to see Mike in action on the field (I did manage to catch a glimpse of him in the bullpen), I had a great time! I can't wait to go back to the stadium again this summer.

Wow, I'm so glad I found this site; I'm really looking forward to being here! GO YANKS!!!!

Hello everyone, my names Jose, I just started posting here, i never posted before(registered in Feburary) because i saw how all the guys and ladies you have here are so informative, i couldn't imagine how I'd be able to post with all of you. But I've started, and I know I'll learn a lot from everyone in the forum.

Since this is a baseball forum, I'll tell you what I throw. I throw a fastball, circle changeup, Splitter, Curveball, and the occasional specialty knuckleball that i just got down today. I am currently working on throwing a Screwball. Wish me all luck, if im good enough, I might be wearing the pinstripes one day...

Hello everyone!

I have been lurking for a little while and decided to register. I grew up a Yankee fan in a house full of Mets fans, I always was the difficult one. :lol

My favorite Yankee is probably Bernie. I grew up near Oneonta and saw him play there....as well as many others. I do miss my O-Yanks.

Looking forward to posting here and meeting you all.

Hi everybody! :)

I'm new here and you can tell who my favorite Yankee is by my name. :D I live in Maryland so I was born an Orioles fan, but I've been a Yanks fan since the '99 World Series. It was then when I first saw Andy's stare and liked him ever since. I still root for the O's but I root for the Yanks at the same time. I hope that's okay :). The Yankees are my postseason team and I hope they still are this year! :cool:

Hi! I'm new here too, so I just wanted to say hi! As you can guess, my favorite player is Tino. Has been ever since he came to the Yankees. My favorite all-time player is the late, great Thurman Munson.

I grew up watching sports with my father, who's been a Yankee fan since he was a kid (40's and 50's - he loved Mantle and Ford and Yogi) so I've heard stories all my life about the great Yankee teams.

After living through the Yankees of the 80's it's nice to have had the team we've got for the past 5 years. Hopefully they can continue their post-season dominance.

Well, just wanted to say hi, didn't mean to ramble.

Hey everyone!!

I joined yesterday. My name is Gia.

Jess2 that Bruce Dickenson quote killed me. Without a doubt one of the best moments on SNL.

Getting back to the Yanks. I was literally born into Yankee-dom, my Dad was in spring training (he was drafted by the Yanks in 1962).
In 1967 he moved me & mom down to Florida to the Yankee apartments, we lived there for quite some time.
I have some great pictures of me being held by Mickey Mantle & Stan Bonson (I actually peed on Stan's bed as a baby - how lovely!!).
Roy White is a dear friend of my Dad's.
He's got some great Mantle & Maris party stories. My mom use to freak when Dad went out w/ them!!
Dad had to serve in the Army so the Yanks pulled strings to get him into the reserves, & he tore his rotator cuff in basic training. The Yanks tried to get him back (Three major surgeries) But no good. It ended his career.
But he's a Yankee for life, & I'm a Yankee kid for life, & I am so proud to say that!!
Hey maybe I'll marry Shane & there will be another Yankee in the family. (I know I'm a little nuts bear with me!!)
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all.
Go Yanks!! Only one full day to go 'till we win Sat. Nite!!
