K-Man visits Yankee Stadium
I came up to The Bronx to tape some introductions for in-flight programs
for Cathay Pacific Airways. One of them was a sports show featuring a segment
on golf. I introduced it by saying,
"A great many people don't get golf. What's the big deal with a sport
that combines the excitement of walking with the thrill of gardening.
I obviously feel a lot different about it. Here we are in Yankee Stadium
where the most exciting play is the home run. That's where a batter steps
up to the plate and hits a ball clear out of the playing field. Not many
men can do this. Hitting a ball between 320 and 405 feet is quite a shot.
That's what it takes to get a home run.
In the world of baseball a home run is an incredible feat, to a golfer
it is just short par three."
