BRONX, N.Y. -- I bought the tickets seven months ago. Just in case.
When single-game tickets went on sale Feb. 29, I figured I should grab a couple for the last regular-season series at Yankee Stadium -- as an insurance policy. Tickets for Saturday and Sunday were sold out immediately, but I was able to snag two seats for Friday night's game against the Orioles.
I still can't believe it ended up being my final trip to The House That Ruth Built.
