Ramapo College, where I became a captain. I had a shoulder injury that made me unable to play softball, but I never let the Yankees or short little 3 time MVP, 10 time World Champion Yogi Berra ever leave my mind. After being laid off three times as a teacher the perseverance I learned through sports helped me earn a Masters degree after 4 years at... Montclair State University, in the same town where Yogi lives!
If you're going to be anywhere near NJ this summer, be sure to stop by! Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for students under 18. You can also catch a Jersey Jackals game while you're there! Jim Leyritz is scheduled to appear July 21, while Bernie Williams will be there on August 4.
As for what lies for me in the year ahead, Yogi says, "It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future...... the game ain't over until it's over."
