This week there is no legal section of the blog.
Now for the Opening Day memory:
My memory of Rudy May is the game he describes below; the reopening of Yankee Stadium in 1976 after the Yankees had been exiled to Shea Stadium while Yankee Stadium was being renovated during the 1974 and 1975 seasons. It was a very tough ticket and I recall missing school and sitting in the upper deck on the third base side closer to left field. I specifically remember the Dan Ford home run Rudy describes below as well as Oscar Gamble's big hitting day for the Yankees. But this is supposed to be about Rudy May. Rudy pitched from 1965-1983 for the then California Angels, two stints with the Yankees, the Baltimore Orioles and the Montreal Expos. Interestingly, he first pitched in the majors for the Angels in 1965, and saw no major league action again until 1969. That is perseverance. He retired in 1983 after his 2nd stint with the Yankees.
