LOU WATERS, CNN ANCHOR: With more on politics and baseball, now, from New York, here's CNN's Frank Buckley.
FRANK BUCKLEY, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Hello Lou; we are preparing, here, for the pep rally at Bryant Park. New York Mets fans on one side, New York Yankees fans on the other.
New York is divided on the Subway Series, even among the U.S. Senate candidates here. Hillary Clinton, as most people know, has said she is a New York Yankees fan. You might recall her putting on the Yankees cap at a White House ceremony last year. She was criticized by some who said she was doing that to just try to gain support among New York Yankees fans -- never mind that she did mention in a 1994 "Washington Post" article that she was a New York Yankees fan as a young girl.
Mrs. Clinton says she will be rooting for the Yankees in the Subway Series.
HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON (D), NEW YORK SENATE CANDIDATE: I share that excitement. I'm absolutely thrilled that, you know, just, gosh -- you know, a year after I moved to the state we have a Subway Series. I mean, that's pretty exciting for me.
BUCKLEY: Mrs. Clinton's opponent in this race, Rick Lazio, is a lifelong New York Mets fan who was at Shea Stadium this past summer. An aide tells me the campaign has purchased the advertising rights to a picture of Mrs. Clinton in a New York Yankees cap and it might be used in some of their TV commercials for Rick Lazio.
Frank Buckley, CNN reporting live from New York.
