We're celebrating the 2021 baseball season.

With baseball season officially kicking off we thought it would be the perfect time to talk about some of our favorite baseball players of all time. Most of us, no matter how old, or young you are have a favorite, right?

Growing up on Long Island in the late 70's, like most New Yorkers, I was brought up in a "Yankee" house. My family were diehard Yankee fans, so early in life I had to be a fan because I really didn't have a choice...LOL! That's how a Yankee made my list of favorites (see below). That changed around 1986 when the New York Mets got really good, and I had the chance to switch over. I took the chance and jump sides. I've been a fan ever since.

Jess has been, and will always be a Yankee fan, as she put it, "its in my blood". She also comes from a family full of Yankee lovers....LOL! Working together, Jess and I came up with our Mount Rushmore of baseball players and here's what we came up with.
