Hugh Fink cheers on Bobby Bonilla. (1:50)

MY FATHER TAUGHT METO LOVE SPORTS

AND EVEN THOUGH HE'S IN INDIANA

AND I'M IN NEW YORK

WHEN A BIG GAME'S ON TV

HE CALLS ME UP ALL EXCITED:

"WELL, IT'STHE NINTH INNING HERE

"WHAT IS IT--THE THIRD INNING THERE, HUH?

"IT'S THE N.B.A. HERE

WHAT IS IT--THE N.H.L. THERE, HUH?"

MY FATHER LISTENS TO THOSE ALLSPORTS RADIO SHOWS THEY HAVE

AND NO MATTER HOW EASY

THE TRIVIA QUESTION IS

HE NEVER GETS IT RIGHT.

I MEAN, THE EASIEST QUESTION.

THIS FORMER YANKEE,KNOWN AS THE SULTAN OF SWAT

ONCE HIT 60 HOMERS IN A SEASON

AND HAD A CHOCOLATE BARNAMED AFTER HIM.

( as father ):WAS IT CANDY MULDINADO?

I LOVE BASEBALL,BUT I REALLY THINK

THEY HAVE TO MAKE ITMORE INTERESTING ON TELEVISION.

'CAUSE I SAW THIS SPECIALON ESPN:

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE FIRST BASE COACH.

RIGHT? THEY PUT A WIRELESS MIKEAROUND THE FIRST BASE COACH

AND AFTER LISTENING TO THE SHOWAND WATCHING IT FOR TWO HOURS

I FINALLY UNDERSTAND

HOW IMPORTANTTHE FIRST BASE COACH IS.

( as sports announcer ):NOW BATTING, BOBBY BONILLA.

( as first base coach ):COME ON, BOBBY.

COME ON, BOBBY.

COME ON, BOB-OH.

( as announcer ):BATTING NEXT, BARRY BONDS.

( coach ):COME ON, BARRY.

COME ON, BARRY BOY.

( as announcer ):STEPPING TO THE PLATE,NOMAR GARCIAPARRA.
