    Yankees fan from Scotland !

    Hi

    (Was on here with another username but had not been on in ages so i wanted to change username and start from scratch)



    Im a Yankees fan from Scotland , i was fortunate enough to go to the old yankee stadium a few years ago and saw a match against the reds though there was a break due to a heavy rain shower it was just great being at old YS and to say ive attended a game at it.

    Ive also been to the new yankee stadium and went to a cracker of a game it was against the Red Sox and we beat them 13-6 (i believe) and it was a HR frenzy !

    The new Yankee stadium is just a luxury even though some of the stuff in the stadium may be over the top it has everything you could possibly want and you can see that it is no ordinary stadium ..it is a palace for baseball !

    My favourite Yankees players are A-Rod , Jeter , Joba , Sabathia , Hughes



    Thats all folks !

    Does the MLB have a big following in Scotland?
    I'd like to thank the good Lord for making me a Yankee fan

    Welcome mate! Where in Scotland are you from?
    It's not the 27 World Championships that drive the New York Yankees. It's the 28th.
    Every year is The Year. Go Yankees.

    Not nearly as big as some other american sports , the largest north american sport is probally NFL followed by ice hockey and baseball . We did used to get MLB on terrestrial tv but they cancelled it , so there are probally still alot of fans out there . Yeah you do see some folk wearing mlb caps ...but its hard to tell whether they are fans or if its just for fashion !

    That's pretty cool it must be weird seeing a diverse group of fans in the same city, since here people for the most part in every city or state are fans of their home team.

    Hello fellow Celt!
    Bring tea for the Tillerman; Steak for the son; Wine for the woman
    who made the rain come; Seagulls sing your hearts away;
    'Cause while the sinners sin, the children play ...

    Yeah it is cool to see the different MLB logos but that is only because im a fan of baseball. Though i know that 99% of the fans that wear the caps have absoloutely no clue about the team or the sport.

    Welcome aboard, mate

    Have Rangers got things sorted? I had thought that they were at risk of disappearing.
