It’s time for another FanPost Friday prompt. Last week’s prompt (How did you become a Yankees fan?) was a huge success and we received a whopping 20 submissions. I really enjoyed reading everyone’s stories and I hope that you will all share more of your stories with us in the future. In case you missed them, all of the submissions can be found here.

This week’s prompt is:

What is your favorite memory at Yankee Stadium?

This probably goes without saying, but you can choose from Yankee Stadium I, Yankee Stadium II, or Yankee Stadium III. Maybe you are one of the lucky ones who has attended a World Series game, or maybe you consider your first trip to the stadium to be your favorite. I’m curious to see whether anyone has a favorite memory that involves the Yankees losing the game. Feel free to share a favorite memory from each stadium if you have them.

I personally have only been to the stadium once. I was there on September 1, 2013 for a game against the Orioles. Mark Teixeira didn’t even play, Joba Chamberlain was bad pitched more than one inning, and the Yankees lost 7-3. It was not a great game, but I still had a fun time. I was simply excited to be at the stadium, surrounded by fellow Yankees fans, watching a game in person. For now, my favorite memory is just being there for the first time, but I’m hoping to replace that at some point in the near future.

Now I want to hear your stories. Don’t forget to check out our tips for writing a good FanPost if you need help getting started.

How will we select which FanPosts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips linked above, you should find yourself on the right track. We will also be looking for FanPosts with comments and recommendations. Depending on the number of responses we get, receiving some recs on your post could separate your FanPost from the crowd. Additionally, if your post has a number of comments then it may have sparked some worthwhile discussions. These are just a few things we’ll be looking for when we decide which post(s) to promote on the front page.

Make sure you head over to the FanPost section of the website to submit your answers before Friday (March 17th).
