- "Why do the Yankees always win? The other team can't stop looking at the pinstripes." -Frank Abagnale.

I went all around the bases when trying to choose a sport or team to focus my blog on, and when I reached home plate I knew that the New York Yankees is where my heart was. Not only is baseball in the prime of the season right now, but the Yankees have opened up doors for me I never thought would be possible, so it was only right.
In my family of New Yorkers, there is no such fan as anything other than a pinstripe fan! It’s safe to say that if you’re in my family and you’re not a Yankee fan, then you get scowled at like 3rd grader in the playground. My cousins have all played in Little League baseball, one which is planning on attending Louisiana State University, to pursue the Big Leagues. I may not have chosen that road for myself, but you sure will catch me cheering on the team at any game. I mean, what’s not to like of a team who’s won 27 championships, the most in ANY sport?
A true New Yorker knows which streets to avoid at certain hours, knows that crossing the street in moving traffic is no big deal because the cars must wait for you to pass, and knows what NY team to root for so you won’t get embarrassed when somebody else from another city mentions their favorite team (sorry Mets fans!).
The “aha!” moment when I knew I had to write on the Yankees was the fact that a year ago, while watching a Yankees game, I came upon an entrepreneurial venture when Michael Kay made a commentary about the sport. I have pursued my idea ever since, meeting with sports managers in MLB and MLB players to support my business venture, which will also be beneficial for the sports of NFL and MLS. I couldn’t forget the team that drove me to “Einstein insanity”, as I like to call it, to pursue something out of my comfort zone, to better the world of sports. Although it’s still a work-in-progress, I owe the idea to the team with the pinstripes and the NY logo.
Any New York Yankees fan knows their blood is blue… pinstripe blue.
