The Yankee's Game!

  The reason why I would love to go to the Yankees game is because I have never been to one and I think it would be very exciting to go to one.I always watch the Yankees game on television and it makes me feel like I'm really there but I bet it would be better to go to a real one!The way it would make me feel would be amazing because I want to bring my mom for a mothers day present and if I win,that would be the best present I would give to her...and it would make me feel the happiest I could ever be just to make her THAT happy.

The Yankee's Games!

  The reason i will love to go to the Yankees game is because me and my dad don't usally spend a lot of time together .One reason  I will love to go is because me and my dad don't have lots of money and he has to work a lot but sometimes I ask him " dad pleeeeeease take a break from work "" but he said no because he .Also this would be a great present that I will give to him for Father's Day because I didn't  give him anything for Father's Day and i want to give this present to him because I feel like he does a lot for me and I barely have anything to give him. And this is why I want to go to the Yankees games.

If I have enough time with her I will have the time to have fun!!!! and made we could go get our nails done after it will be the time of my life. It will be the best time together.

WINNER! → Andrew Jeanty (Age - 10, New Rochelle, NY)

Dream come true!

  It would be a dream come true to see my favorite Yankee team play live at the Yankee Stadium. I watch baseball games on tv with my dad all the time. I enjoy playing baseball with my dad and learning about the game and its legendary players. Visiting the Yankee Stadium museum would be awesome too! Winning a ticket for me and my Dad would be the greatest gift ever. Thank you. "Play Ball"!

WINNER! → Daniel Singh (Age - 11, Bronx, NY)

Why i would like to see the game again

  I would love to go the Yankee stadium again, despite that I do not know much about the sport. It would be a great experience to see all the Yankee players that they are talking about. Since I am older now since my last visit, I would be able know more about baseball and I could save the memories in my mind for a very long time. I could tell all my friends about my experiences and take pictures of the glorious moments in the game. Chances are I would go with my mom because she does a lot for me and gives me a lot of things. Watching the game on the TV would be fun but it is not the same experience as being there. You could say that you have been there and you saw all the gameplay live with your own two eyes. It would mean a lot to me to see the Yankees play again and even if they loose, I will still have an experience of a lifetime that some people dream to have.

If I win the tickets I will put my New York Yankee cap on, go to the game and cheer as loud as I can because it would be one of the best days of my life. Thank you for making it possible for kids like me to go and see a real life Yankees game.

Give me a memory!!! Send me to the Yankee's game please!

  I would like to go to the Yankee's game because baseball is one of my favorite sports. It would mean the world to me to go to the Yankee Stadium and experience what it is  like to see a game as it is being played, instead of watching it on the tv. Everyone can watch a Yankee's game on the tv but not everyone get a chance to see a game in person. It would be really Awesome to tell my friends that I got to see A-Rod and the other players on the team.

It's Amazing at a Baseball game!

   Once my mom took me to see the Newark Bears, it was a lot of fun, but I have never been to a pro game because mom says it cost too much. Mom is always working or studying for school. She says that one day she will get a better job and take me to a game. I believe her but it just hasn't happened yet. I think it would be amazing at a baseball game. You can catch fly balls or maybe get autographs or see fireworks, but best of all  watch the players play. I have never played baseball because for awhile I was sick, but now I'm better. Mom signed me up for soccer but I'm hoping to join the baseball team too this year. I know Derek Jeter doesn't play anymore, but maybe he will come to watch to game. It's also awesome because I will be hanging out with my mom.

Caiden Reynolds (Age - 9, Bronx, NY)

Do Not Judge A Book By Its Cover

  I used to think baseball was just about hitting a ball with a bat then I noticed one of my friends enjoying the sport. After a while I started to learn about cool baseball players and I became very interested. I learned about Jackie Robinson and Babe Ruth who is my favorite Yankees player. Winning a ticket to the Yankee Stadium would mean the world to me. As a young child growing up I was not used to a lot of stuff being handed to me and money was always a concern and an issue for my mom so going to games was not a priority. If I am chosen to go to the game I would be be so excited.

Daejounae Anderson (Age - 15, Bronx, NY)

Curious spectator

  I would like to go to the Yankee Stadium because I hear it is well known and I would love to see why it is so many people talk about it. I am not so interesting in sport but I would like the opportunity to learn a little about different sports and seeing a Yankees game would be a great start. A baseball game would also be a great way for me to experience new things. Being a Bronx girl I have never been to any sports game so this would be a great opportunity for me. If I won the tickets I will be very delighted to see my first game with my mom.
