Scott Howard Forest
November 29, 2019
I remember when I went with my good friend Steve Warshawer to the last game that the NY Yankees played in the then old Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, NY. I took my little brother Scott Howard Forest to the game. We were sitting in the outfield. Well, after the game, as a joke we went to the fence by the field and I lifted Scott over the fence and left him standing on the field. He walked over to home plate where we met him. We were all laughing. We later found out that Scott had taken a miniature pocket saw with him to the game and during the game he sawed off a piece of wood from the back of his chair as a souvenir. What a kid he was.
