Born in Upstate New York and raised by two Yankee fans, I grew up liking the New York Yankees baseball team. As a child, I always wanted to see the Yankee Stadium in the heart of New York City. However, at the age of five, my family and I moved from Rouses Point, New York to San Juan, Puerto Rico. My family and I lived on the island for the next three years before we were able to return to the United States. My family moved to Richmond, Virginia in 2008. The summer of 2008, my family and I went on a road-trip back to see our relatives in Upstate New York, however, along the way we stopped to tour New York City. After our arrival, it was then my father revealed to me that he had secretly bought tickets to the upcoming New York Yankees versus the Boston Red Sox game.

It was in 2008, or around that time, that I came to like the Baltimore Orioles.

... the grain patterns are slightly darker. The New York Yankees logo and name are a deep blue called “Yankees Blue.” The dimensions of the baseball bat are approximately eighteen inches from knob of the handle to the end cape of the barrel. Furthermore, while the width of the end cap is three centimeters, the knob has a width of two and a half centimeters. The weight of the bat is likely a bit less than one pound and is held easily in one hand. The shape of the baseball bat can only be described as bat-shaped as baseball bats are uniquely shaped, but the bat is rectangular with a longer height and shorter width. There are no movable parts on a baseball bat as the player swinging the bat is what gives the bat its kinetic energy. Lastly, on the barrel of the baseball bat is printed the name of the New York Yankees and the trademarked New York Yankee logo in Yankee Blue.
