Default Voice of the Yankees

I grew up on Long Island, and although I was originally a Brooklyn Dodgers fan and saw my first game ab Ebbets Field, and my first hero was Pee Wee Reese, when they moved to California I became a Yankees fan. For the last 11 years I have been living in Toledo Ohio (part time in tv) and got to listen to many Detroit Tiger games. I was privileged to be able to enjoy two Giants of the broadcasting industry. Ernie Harwell and Bob Sheppard. Both have recently passed away, but their voices will always be part of my baseball memories. For true baseball fans, these were men that brought class and dignity to my favorite game.

I just saw it come across the news unconfirmed reports that George Steinbrenner has suffered a massive heart attack. He's listed in critical condition.

I just finished reading the newly released book, STEINBRENNER: THE LAST LION OF BASEBALL. He was an "interesting" character to say the least. RIP

Default Getting the YES Network in The Villages

We will be moving into The Villages on October 1st and are in the process of setting up Direct TV service. We are avid Yankee fans and want to receive the YES Network. I have been receiving conflicting information on whether or not it is available. When I talked to a rep from Century Link, they said it is available but after reading NJBlue's comments as of 2009, he wasn't able to receive YES in Florida. Help!!!!

I doubt it. We live in Memphis now and I pay for the MLB package and the NFL package (only available on Directv) to see my wonderful teams. You can buy the sport package from Directv but ONLY the games will be blacked out. Just an extra cost for leaving the Apple. I hope someone responds and tells me I'm full of bull in TV. PLEASE!

My husband is on the phone right now with Century Link and they are saying that we can get the YES network on Direct TV at our location. I'm hoping that's true. If not there is always MLB network. We've never had a satellite dish before and hope it is reliable. Thanks for the info and I hope you're wrong also. My husband can't live without his Yankees.
