For today’s blog I would like to highlight one of the funniest, most lovable, most quotable pitchers to ever wear the pinstripes — Lefty Gomez.
Rivera wasn’t just the best closer in the history of baseball. His ability to defy logic for 18 seasons makes him one of the most unique athletes of all-time.
For a team that trades on tradition, symbolism and success, the Yankees just took a giant leap toward remaining competitive, if not contenders, in 2013 by signing Andy Pettitte.
The pinstriped recipe for success this season will take a backseat to the sudden surge of southpaw pitching. The Yankees will remain in the playoffs for as long as CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte pitch to the back of their baseball cards.
The Yankees are living and breathing again. If you listen closely, you may be starting to feel the rumble of giant steps as they close out the regular season.
In this installment of By The Numbers, I would like to share some personal feelings about the greatest player who ever lived…and my relationship with him…a relationship which began nearly six decades ago.
The New York Yankees have announced that nearly 50 former Yankees will attend the 66th annual Old Timers’ Day at Yankee Stadium on Sunday, July 1st.
The Yankees out-slugged the Angles Sunday night as they claimed an 11-5 victory.
A bevy of all-time Bombers, including Joe Torre and Bernie Williams, took to the field once again for the Yankee Stadium crowd on Sunday.
Andy Pettitte pitched as he acted: like a gentleman. From the jump he acted like he’d been there before. And rather quickly, he had.
Andy Pettitte is going ahead with his decision to retire, leaving the Yankees with a huge hole in what appears to be a rather wobbly starting rotation. On Thursday, several all-time great Yankees weighed in on Pettitte’s career in pinstripes.
In this episode of By The Numbers, former guest blogger Ray Aumack gives us wonderful look at a wonderful human being.
I was ten years old when I watched my first World Series…the Yankees against the Milwaukee Braves. I still remember Mickey Mantle loping out in County Stadium’s center field, corralling the final out of the series. My first World Series and the Yankees won!
For this episode of By The Numbers, Mr. Vincent Getz, a member of the Society for American Baseball Research, revisits the World Series of fifty years ago.
