Today is the home opener for the Yankees in their new stadium. So to mark the occasion, today's "As Seen On TV" spotlight is on former right-fielder Paul O'Neill: For a quick recap of his career, here's the thumbnail from Wikipedia:

Paul Andrew O'Neill (born February 25, 1963 in Columbus, Ohio) is a former right fielder Major League Baseball player who won five World Series while playing for the Cincinnati Reds (1985-1992) and New York Yankees (1993-2001). In a 17 year career, O'Neill compiled a lifetime batting average of .288, 281 home runs, 1,269 runs batted in, and 2,105 hits. O'Neill won the American League batting title in 1994 with a .359 average. He was also a five-time All-Star, playing in 1991, 1994, 1995, 1997, and 1998.

For "As Seen On TV", this image was taken from the TV movie "Joe Torre: Curveballs Along The Way".

And today's installment is dedicated to my "Iddiot" friend Jennie who - despite her British origins - is devoted to the Yankees.......
