In the 70s my family and I shlepped to the Bronx to see the Yankees. I took this shot because I liked the way the two kids were silhouetted with the stadium in the background. Once again I used playing cards to decorate the mat, but this time using only the diamonds. The seams of the baseball were taken from a pattern I found at the art store. On the outside corners I placed asterisks because of the constant publicity about the baseball players who were taking steroids and the debates as to whether an asterisk should be placed next to the players in the record book indicating their performance may have been unfairly enhanced. In my opinion, I don't really care. They didn't do it for Roger Marist who broke Babe Ruth's record in 162 games where Ruth did it in 154.
