when i was a kid in 1996 i was introduced to the world of baseball by my stepdad. i never cared for it before then. he is/was a huge Yankees fan.
over the times I came to appreciate new york and the entire history of the Yankees. i learned alot about Mantle, Ruth, Yogi, Maris, etc. and just fell in love with it. Easily influenced in my teens, .
when i got into high school one of my (now best) friends was a huge fan too so we bonded over that and it just made my love for dem Yanks stronger.
contrary to what everyone just assumes my hate for the red sox is all but gone. it's just not the same anymore like it was in the early 2000's. and i really just don't care about them anymore. i dont root for them to win, but i dont want every player to fall and injure themselves in every game either, lol.
I still hate the Sox but thats because all my friends who spend the 90s/early 00s as Braves fans have somehow become die hard Sox fans. Im not too hardcore into baseball anymore though...Nothing ever can or will replace my love (or money spent) on the 49ers.
