Jesus Montero was with the club at the time, and I was really looking forward to get a close up glimpse of the once highly touted prospect. But before I went to the ball park with the family we made a stop at a sports store. I already had my kids decked out in their Yankees gear, and I was in my Joe Dimaggio t-shirt ready to head to the game. It was obvious I was going to root on the Baby Bombers.
was hoping to get an autograph from anyone, but I really wanted one
from Jesus Montero. My kids got up from their seat and looked down as they
noticed the string to the bucket tug. I got up to look and kept saying
to myself "Please be Jesus, please." I looked down and there was David Phelps looking at my son. He said hi, and my son who is real quiet
smiled back and said hello. My little guy asked, ''Do you play for the
New York Yankees?" Dave replied, "maybe someday," as he was signing the
ball. I told him to say, "have a good game tonight." He did just that.
Phelps looked at him and said "thanks" as he put the ball back into the
bucket, and went to stretch out.
