Sports scribe to walk from Yankee to Shea Friday
Sam Borden of The Journal News plans to eschew both his car and the subway Friday and walk from Yankee Stadium to Shea to take in both ends of the day-night, two-stadium twin bill.
Partly it's to get a story out of it for the newspaper. But he's also decided to turn it into a fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society.
To join him and/or to donate, go here. He said he plans to leave from the big bat in the Bronx 20-30 minutes after Game 1.
(UPDATE: Turns out Newsday's own Jim Baumbach plans to RUN the distance between the two stadiums, perhaps in less than two hours. Let's see Carlos Delgado try that.)
