October 27 2000: A Great Season Ends

If any of you have read my last column of the season on Yankees Xtreme, you know I was alone on the night of the Yankees World Series win in 1999. And if you’ve been following my columns or my baseball diary on my web page, you know that although I was a total Yankee […]
