Yeah, I wouldn't go too far up on Jerome Ave. lol. Stay on the River Ave side of it. Around Stan's it's all guys trying to sell Yankee memorabilia, some of the shops are okay though. The stores have been there for a long time. At River and 161st, there's more shops and bars/restaurants etc. That's where most of the pre or post game crowd hangs out.
"It's huge when guys are sticking up for each other," Rechlicz said. "It's more of a team bonding thing. I think it's great, and that's the style we've got to play. Guys come together, and it's like your family out there ... That's what it's all about. If you mess with one of our guys, you're going to mess with five of them. That's just the way it's going to go."
