    New from Franklin County Pennsylvania

    I have been a member of other forums and just the other day I thought that I would seek out a baseball forum. I started getting interested in the game of baseball around 1954 when my father would take me to the Phillie's games at Connie Mack Stadium. We would also go to the Lancaster (Pa.) Red Roses games. I don't even remember who they were an affiliate of anymore. It was a long time ago. I remember around 1956 that I had all the Phillies and Yankees baseball cards except Mickey Mantle for that year. Only one kid in the neighborhood had him and I don't remember what I paid him, but I bought the card from him and my collection was complete for that summer. Wish I still had the cards, but like so many others back then, they were gone when I got back home from the Navy. Baseball has always been my favorite, and now I watch my grandkids play. I used to coach some little league and now my son does the same. I have been a Yankees fan for a long time, Phillies too, but I just like to watch the game and have always tried to be respectful of other fans and their teams.
    The saddest day of the year is the day that baseball season ends.

    On October 8, 1956, in game 5 of the 1956 World Series, Don Larsen of the New York Yankees, threw a perfect game against the Brooklyn Dodgers.

    Welcome! In 1954, the Lancaster Red Roses were affiliated with the Philadelphia A's and remained affiliated them in 1955 after the A's went to Kansas City.
