Jose lived in San Juan, and all he ever wanted was to see a baseball game in Yankee Stadium. Jose loved baseball, he loved the Yankees.
He worked and saved and at long last bought a ticket, took a plane, but when he got to Yankee Stadium, it was all sold out.
Not a seat to be had. Jose pleaded, touched the heart of the ticket office and they found him a seat way out in the bleachers
behind the flagpole.
Jose saw his baseball game and went back to Puerto Rico, flying so high he almost didn’t need a plane. Well, Jose, they asked when he returned, “How was it?”
Jose raved. The stadium, the game, the Yankees and, oh yes, most of all the fans…..They were so friendly, so concerned about him that it was unbelievable. “Can you imagine it? Before the game began, they all stood up and turned, looked at me and sang,…..
…… “Jose? Can you see?”!
