What does the research say about time travel?
I would go to the 1970s. I think I would like to travel to New York Cityduring that time. I am interested in sports, especially baseball. New York would have been a great place to visit and watch a baseball game at the finest stadium of all -- Yankee Stadium.
I think it would be interesting to go to New York Yankee Stadium because it looks exactly the same now as it did in 1970. It is one of the stadiums that hasn’t changed, and it would be great to visit then and even now.
I would like to land in 1970. I would like to see how people lived in 1970.
I would like to go to Yankee Stadium and meet the great catcher, Thurman Munson.
I would like to go to Yankee Stadium and meet the great catcher, Thurman Munson. I would get a ticket right behind home plate to see him when he made his great catches. I would also go on another night and sit in the right field bleachers. I would try to catch one of his great hits.
Thurman was the best catcher in the American League. He hit 113 home runs. I would like to be there in 1970 to see Thurman Munson when he hit .302
I would want to go to Yankee Stadium to see the 1970 Yankees. On November 25, Thurman Munson won Rookie of the Year.
I would tell Thurman Munson that he should never go flying because he later got killed in a plane crash in 1979. He learned how to fly his own plane so that he could fly home more often to be with his kids.
Munson was good for baseball. He was a great player and a great man. I think if he had been a player longer it would have been very good for the Yankees and for baseball. If he listened to me, he might still be alive today.
