It's hard to imagine, but 50 years ago, a visitor to Yankee Stadium was allowed onto the field after the game. Several thousand people would walk around the outskirts of the field, on the warning track. It was a slow shuffle, but no one seemed to be in a rush those days.
It was a time that I saw my dad as "a guy," interacting with other guys, regardless of background, race, etc. I was always very proud how easily he spoke w/strangers. He was totally fearless, and loved having his oldest son along for the walk.
