When the Yankees won the World Series last year, it was the first time in 9 years. It meant so much to me to see the Yanks win it all for the first time that I could understand what was going on. For the past 2 years I have tried to document the season in almost any way possible. Baseball became a part of my life and it was often hard to keep up with. It's been so much fun following them the past few years. I can't wait for another season to start, something I have been waiting for since that Shane Victorino groundout to Cano then Teixiera to win it all once again. The Yankees started their season up today against the Pirates that ended in the same fashion that they had done so many exciting times last year. Colin Curtis hit a three-run walkoff homer to win the game 6-3 in a game that was headed for extras, something neither team needed to deal with. This leads to the second part to this story, the one that isn't as obvious. Since going to games in New York doesn't work out to well, despite the fact that the two times I've gone have been memorable ones. Instead, I try to go to games where Trenton plays closer. To me going to a baseball game is a baseball game as long as it has to do with the Yankees. In the past year I have seen Trenton play many times which doesn't seem as exciting but it is, just in different ways. Today was an example of one of these ways, watching Colin Curtis hit a walkoff in the first game of Spring Training. Watching Minor League games gives a chance to follow different players and watch them grow until they make it to the Majors. It's a cool feeling that you knew about a player before they made it to the Majors and their backstory. Another instance was watching Cervelli catch close up just 3 days before he was called up to the Majors last year. After reading this I hope it gives people more of reason to pay attention to Minor Leaguers. Most of today's game against the Pirates was pitchers all the way until about the 6th inning. The first spark was back to back great plays in the outfield from Jamie Hoffman and Brett Gardner. Ramiro Pena was the one to spark the offensive rally with a homerun in the bottom of the 6th. Nick Johnson followed later with a one out double to score Eduardo Nunez among one other run in the inning. The Pirates scored all of their 3 runs in the 7th highlighted by a 2-run double by catcher Erik Kratz. The 9th inning started off tied 3-3 with both teams hoping that they would be able to avoid extras and not have to mess with the pitcher's schedules. After two Yanks got on with one out in the bottom of the 9th Colin Curtis came up and blasted a three-run homer to end the first game of what is to be another amazing season for the 27-Time World Series Champs.
