2 Great Bronx Traditions

by Dave Herwitz, Director of Admissions, ABC Training Center

Well here we are in mid-April.  The weather is getting warmer (thank heavens), the days are getting longer and just a few subway stops away on the 4 train, the most successful team in all of sports is doing its thing again.  That’s right, the New York Yankees are back in action powering their way atop the American League.  So that got me to thinking about all of the similarities and differences between the New York Yankees and ABC Training Center – 2 great NYC  winning traditions, Bronx style.  A sort of Tale of the Tape, if you will.  Drum roll please…
