  1. Now we just need Ike Davis to come flying in to catch a foul ball the way he did Wednesday night at Citifield in a nearby borough. However, I see there is a batting cage behind home plate, so I guess these lads disappear when the action starts.

  2. Steve, you’ll appreciate this image of the gentry at Coogan’s Bluff in the days when the ballgame was a social occasion.

  3. Hey, Batter, Batter…….Swing!

  4. Clever — and IMHO better than Hey Batter Batter — Bop!

  5. So that’s the Rudy Friml Prof. Harold Hill mentions in “The Music Man”.
