About Emma Span
This blog covers the Yankees, Mets, baseball in general, New York, and sometimes movies; so does my first book, “90% of the Game Is Half Mental,” which is now available online and in stores, and (I can assure you from personal experience) makes an excellent coaster. I grew up in New Jersey worshipping at the altar of Don Mattingly, and have written about baseball for, among other places, the Village Voice, New York Press, Slate, and Newsday.com. I live in Brooklyn with an extremely affectionate and somewhat dim Labrador Retriever.
