My great uncle.

He's one of the only last Yankees players alive from the 61' world series.

He was an amazing player.
My whole family said if he didn't play for the Yankees, he would of been a huge star on a different team.

He played with the likes of Roger Maris, Mickey Mantle, and Yogi Berra.

He blows my mind with how good he was.
Baseball runs through my blood.
I've met him a couple of times. And he's a great man. I can tell you that. I haven't seen him for a while. But the times I had with him were great. And hopefully I'll have more with him

from wikipedia:

Blanchard will always be remembered for his heroic play in the 1961 World Series. He hit 2 home runs in that series against the Cincinnati Reds and batted .400 for the entire series. In his career, Blanchard appeared in the World Series 5 times for the Yankees and holds the Major League record with ten World Series pinch-hit at-bats


see i like to talk about happy things.
since the twins are blowing some hard core ass-bat-ness.
