October 17th, 2004 : With Jason Varitek looking on, @AROD takes one out of Fenway Park. Who misses the good old Yankees ??? I do, baseball isn’t what it was when Jeter and AROD played :/ Just keeping it real.

🚨🚨 GAME FOUR! Yankees host the Astros. 😱😂 Who ya got?
For Americans of all ages, the Saturday matinee was an enjoyable endeavor back in the 1920s – be it at the ballpark or in the local movie house. Celebrated icons from both came together to autograph this baseball. The signatures, we assume, were gathered at different events and, of course, have been executed by stars from altogether different entertainment genres. It's a good bet, however, that the thespian endorsements (and possibly that of Ruth) were placed while on the set for the 1928 production of "Speedy," a Harold Lloyd silent film in which Ruth makes an appearance hailing a taxi cab. #baberuth#newyorkyankees#yankees

Peppered around the Internets the last two days you probably heard the story about how the 1998 Yankees were down two games to one to the Cleveland Indians in the ALCS. I don't like to really say the same things that other pages are saying - especially because I know a few of them on here - but I mean, it's such a cool story, I also can't ignore it.
Back then the Yankees took game 1 defiantly. Looked like they'd control the series. Then in game 2 they lost in extra innings. They looked lost in game 3 and for game 4 they had El Duque on the mound.
In the book "The Torre Years," Tom Verducci tells a story about Joe Torre having breakfast the morning of game 4 of that ALCS in the team hotel. While Torre was waiting to be served he noticed that somebody familiar was bussing tables. When he got a closer look he realized it was his game 4 starter. El Duque was apparently so amped he felt like he had to do something so he asked the hotel if he could serve breakfast to all the guests.
LINK IN BIO | Cheating has been going on in every sport since the beginning. This is not a huge secret that cheating happens. Every team that competes in the regular season, postseason, or whenever else games are played try to gain an advantage over another team as long as they are able to get away with it.
If the Astros, or the Yankees, can visually see a sign from the dugout it is really not crossing a line because both teams have that same advantage. It's when you start to hear about special cameras going up for a specific angle that seem to only benefit one team, that is when it gets dicey.
But whether you talking about stealing signs in baseball, or James Harden traveling on his 3-point jump shot, players will continue to do it to gain the edge over another team as long as they are not caught.
