About Fan Interference
The first thing I learned to read after some book about dinosaurs was a baseball box score. The first baseball game I can legitimately remember watching is Twins-Braves in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series, when Jack Morris pitched 10 innings and Dan Gladden scored the winning run of a 1-0 game. I was hooked on the sport after that classic, and growing up on Long Island I followed in my fathers footsteps and began rooting for the Mets. Back in 1991 I wasnt too young to relish in the Braves anguish as a Mets fan, so two playoff appearances in 19 years could very well be karma.
I left New York for a few years to attend the fine University of Pittsburgh, and got some perspective on what its really like to be a suffering baseball fan. Made me feel a little better about the Mets situation, but not much. Came back to New York to finish a graduate degree at Hofstra University, and this is my first year writing for MLB.com.
