  1. The Virginians were the farm team for the NY Yankees. I remember in the early 60s when the Yankees played an exhibition game against the Virginians. My parents family friend was Don Larsen (Uncle Don to me). I remember the next morning kids and fathers lined up down our street waiting to get his signature on their baseballs. My brother and I were the most popular kids on the block for a while.
