Alex and I will be going on a short sister’s baseball trip to New York City this weekend to see her favorite Yankee, Hideki Matsui retire in pinstripes during Sunday’s game against the Rays. As soon as I heard the rumors that this game would be his retirement day I went online and purchased tickets. We’re sitting two rows up from center field in the bleachers (so we can partake in Roll Call properly) for only $22! Cheap seats in Yankee Stadium do exist my friends!!

It’s going to be a very short trip as we both have to work Monday, but we couldn’t pass up the chance to see our guy one final time as a Yankee! Here’s a sampling of our love for Hideki over the years:
