Barring rain, tonight is Derek Jeter's last game ever at Yankee Stadium. It's also the first game he playing in the Bronx that has no implications on his team's playoff chances...ever. Jeter was the model captain, the king of clutch (Shout out to you Chris Wayland) and perhaps most importantly the ideal citizen. New York is a city defined by many historic buildings, events and figures, but in my mind no one has embodied the city in the past two decades in the way Jeter has. Perhaps nothing expresses his leadership qualities as much as the fact that in his 20 year career with the Yankees he was never once ejected from a game. Derek Jeter never won a regular season MVP, but nonetheless was the driving force behind many of the Yankees greatest playoff pushes and subsequent World Series titles. Of all the great sports plays in history, few stand out to me like the famous flip against the A's and his Mr. October homerun, a homerun that was ultimately futile in the Yankees pursuit of the World Series against th ...

OK Folks, imagine it’s the 7th game of the World Series. Make it Dodgers Yankees and heck, make it at Yankee Stadium. The whole game has been a pitcher’s duel. Imagine too that only a few hits were scattered here and there, a few walks, and a few near misses, but at the end of 15 innings, the score still remained tied. The whole world would be watching America’s national pastime at its zenith. Then, to finish the hypothetical, imagine at the top of the 16th inning, a Dodger batter hits a home run which is not answered by the Yankees’ next three batters. Theresult of this fantastic pitching duel and Dodgers winning the series would be talked of in exalted terms for years to come. We are Americans and we love our baseball. A game such as I described would have all of America riveted to their seats; staring into TVs with wide eyed hope and anticipation of something -- anything, to happen. There would be cheering and booing and yelling yourself hoarse at the home run. That game would be th ...
Tony Gwynn could handle a bat like few other Major Leaguers, whether it was driving the ball through the "5.5 hole" between third base and shortstop or hitting a home run off the facade in Yankee Stadium in the World Series. He was a craftsman at the plate, whose sweet left-handed swing made him one of baseball's greatest hitters. Gwynn loved San Diego. San Diego loved "Mr. Padre" right back. Gwynn, a Hall of Famer and one of the greatest athletes in San Diego's history, died Monday of oral cancer, a disease he attributed to years of chewing tobacco. He was 54. "Our city is a little darker today without him but immeasurably better because of him," Mayor Kevin Faulconer said in a statement. In a rarity in pro sports, Gwynn played his whole career with the Padres, choosing to stay in the city where he was a two-sport star in college, rather than leaving for bigger paychecks elsewhere. His terrific hand-eye coordination made him one of the game's greatest pure hitters. He had 3,141 hits -- 18th on the all-ti ...

Kerri's team the NY Yankees are winning in the bottom of the 8th. She's super pumped. I'm munching on some dandelion greens reading about the history of the Yankees. The New York Yankees were originally the New York Highlanders. The team was founded in 1903. The first Yankee Stadium was opened in 1923, and the Opening Day game was a 4-1 win over the Boston Red Sox. During their long and winning history, other notable players included Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Jackie Robinson, and many others. As of 2010, the New York Yankees were the most winning team in Major League Baseball, with 27 World Series titles, and dozes of championship series titles. Take that Sox! The NY Yankees were the first team in MLB history to hit 3 Grand Slams by one team in the same game! They did it in 2011.

10 can’t-miss games on Derek Jeter’s farewell tour Baseball is a game of routine, a marathon season stretched over a 162-game schedule. Every game counts the same in the standings, but some will surely be more memorable than others. As Derek Jeter gets set for his farewell season, here are 10 dates to circle on your baseball calendar: APRIL 1, AT HOUSTON Jeter’s final Opening Day takes place at Minute Maid Park against the lowly Astros, which should be the ideal setting for the Captain to get off to a good start. APRIL 7, VS. BALTIMORE Jeter has always insisted the season doesn’t really begin until the Yankees play their home opener. The Orioles come to town for Jeter's final opener at Yankee Stadium. MAY 15, AT METS Jeter has been the star of the Subway Series ever since the Yankees and Mets first squared off in 1997, so his final game in Queens should be one to watch. His leadoff home run in Game 4 of the 2000 World Series was one of the great moments of his career. JUNE 15, AT OAKLAND Jeter wra ...
What are the chances? As far as I know this is the first time it has happened. My Bawdy Pacas came into the new season looking for better luck, after a brutal Division in their last season. Their AL Central in the new season includes a Cincinnati team by the same Owner who won the Division in their last season and went on to win the World Series. That Owner has 94 SIM Baseball Championships. San Diego in BP's new AL Central is conducted by an Owner with 12 Championships. My 2 Championships must barely get their notice. The remaining team, another New York team, is Owned by a true Newbie. Of course, that means he is unknown, not necessarily easy. His team plays in new Yankee Stadium. BP are based at Citi Field. BP's season begins on Saturday Morning, at Home, vs. yet another New York team. This NY entry is in AL East and is based at traditional Yankee Stadium. The Owner is rated Veteran. He appears to have a full, positive history in Hardball Dynasty, the mathematical model version ...

Mickey Fact: Other than Yankee Stadium, where he hit 266 career home runs, Mickey's best ballpark for hitting home runs was Tiger Stadium in Detroit. He hit 42 career homers there. However, Mickey said his favorite park was the Brooklyn Dodgers' Ebbets Field. In those days there was no inter-league play, so he only played there in the World Series and exhibition games.
So far I am digging what this guy has to say. Assuming the translator is being truthful.: Tanaka Heads for a Strange Land With a Title in His Sights By HIROKO TABUCHI 24 January 2014 The New York Times Copyright 2014 The New York Times Company. All Rights Reserved. TOKYO -- Major League sluggers hit hard. Coaches are careful with pitch counts. And New York has bad weather. That is about all Masahiro Tanaka knows about America and baseball, he joked at a news conference Thursday, a day after he agreed to a seven-year, $155 million deal with the Yankees. He chose the team, he said, because he felt it had given him the ''highest evaluation.'' ''I'm going there to win the World Series,'' he said. ''I can't wait to get to the pitcher's mound at Yankee Stadium.'' Tanaka, a 25-year-old right-hander, is the biggest hope yet heading to the United States from Japan, a country that has produced a string of stars like Hideo Nomo, Ichiro Suzuki and Hideki Matsui, as well as a few duds. Tanaka's contract is the biggest ...

Watching Game 1 of the 2000 World Series and God do I miss the old Yankee Stadium
Classic pages from a 1927 Kansas City Blues scorebook. I love the old ads, including passenger train service on the Milwaukee Railroad and the Kansas City Ice Company. Pictured in the lineup section is Blues player Lawton "Whitey" Witt, who was in his last year of Professional Baseball. Prior to playing with the minor league Blues, he spent ten years (1916-1926) in the majors with the Philadelphia A's, New York Yankees and the Brooklyn Robins (who would become the Dodgers). He played with the Yankees in the 1922 and 1923 World Series along with Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. He was with the Yankees at the inaugural game of the "new" Yankee Stadium in 1923. Read about his life and career in the following SABR Bio.

 "ST-RIKE ONE! ST-RIKE TWO! ST-RIKE THREE! YOU ARE OUTTA HERE!"The roar of the demonic chalk skinned seven foot umpire flooded the stadium as a cloven hoofed coach trotted toward home plate, his eyes mad with the latest bad call on another of his players. The wails and shrieks of spectral sports fan and ghoulish admirers of a great pastime rattled and shook the grounds like a Los Angeles tremor. Now, I'm watching all this happen from my concession stand and I feel as though you're coming in late to the story so I'll fill you in. Every night after the humans have their way with a sport arena; basketball courts, hockey rinks, soccer fields -or in my case, a baseball diamond- that's when the ghosts come out to play. There's so much life-force energy left in the equipment from when a mortal touches it, we just couldn't let it all go to waste. So one night after the World Series, this big time ball player, George Herman Ruth, snuck into Yankee Stadium and batted around. The Babe -as he was called when he was ...
Past and Present Kings & Queens Effa Manley was born on this date in 1900. An African-American business entrepreneur, Manley was the only female owner in the history of *** Leagues. Manley was from Philadelphia, and rarely discussed her heritage, and most people assumed she was a light-skinned Black. Young Effa was raised in a household with a Black stepfather and Black half-siblings. After graduation from high school in Philadelphia, she moved to New York to work in the millinery business. She met Abe Manley, a man 24 years older than her, at the 1932 World Series at Yankee Stadium. They married on June 15, 1935. Abe had money through a number of successful investments in real estate and in "numbers banking," or racketeering. Together, they started a *** League team in Brooklyn, in 1935, naming the team the Eagles. The Eagles played in Ebbets Field, yet were unable to compete with the Brooklyn Dodgers fans, and the Manleys moved the team to survive financially. They bought the Newark Dodgers, a Black ...
What a horrific event. The Boston Red Sox won the World Series for the third time in 10 years. The Boss would be disgusted. No, not Bruce Springsteen, I mean George M. Steinbrenner the 3rd. By now he would've called an emergency meeting within the secret hollows of Yankee Stadium. There he'd fire Girardi and hire 10 private investigators to dig up dirt on that midget 2nd baseman Pedroia. No doubt this win for the Red Sox cripples the good name of baseball George build when he bought the Yankees in the 1970s. Because of his ownership, the Red Sox owe George a front page Boston Globe thank you for building baseball to what it is today, a game which allows bearded vagrants the chance to become millionaires, play ball and win a championship. Without the presence of George in baseball, up until his death, the Red Sox would've remained a lowly group of subhumanoids making threats to Bill Buckner. Every Red Sox in the organization and every Red Sox fan should thank the good lord for creating George M. Steinbrenn ...
Were you into the Russia/Chechnya peace treaty? How about Bob Dole? Sling Blade? Yes? Then you're a fan of 1996! Alcoa presents: Keitho's World Series Memories! By the mid-90s the Braves had ensconced themselves as an October mainstay, polluting post- season television screens with their half- filled stadium and moronic, racist fans. The Yankees, believe it or not, were a novelty. After a decade and a half of futility featuring the likes of Mel Hall, a washed up Jack Clark, Kevin Maas and Dan Pasqua, the Yankees emerged with a crop of promising youngsters - Jeter, Bernie Williams, Mariano Rivera - and grizzled veterans- Wade Boggs. Tino Martinez, and Cecil Fielder. My best friend, Jeff, who worked at CBS radio, scored a pair of tickets to game 1. Would I like to go? You bet! As we emerged from the old Yankee Stadium parking lot (I believe it had a 50 car capacity) we noticed a buzz in the air. This was the same stadium that had seen 22 World Series Championships and countless more pennants. (actually ...
10 years ago tonight was the final World Series game played at the old Yankee Stadium.
Game 2 of the 1951 World Series in front of 66,018 at Yankee Stadium--NOT POLO GROUNDS--Mickey Mantle injured his knee.
So Joe Girardi is staying with the Yankees for the next 4 years to continue filling out the lineup card at Yankee Stadium. As disappointing as Cub fans, as well as Theo Epstein might be, two words...Dusty Baker. Two more words...Lou Piniella. The Cubs can write a big check all they want, but guess what? The team's World Series dryspell is 105 years...and counting.
This day in sports history: 1922: For 1st time, entire World Series broadcast over radio (WJZ & WGY). 1924: New York Giants become 1st team to appear in 4 consecutive World Series. 1928: 25th World Series begins with the New York Yankees vs St Louis Cardinals. 1930: Philadelphia Athletics' Jack Quinn, 46, pitches 2 inn, is oldest to play in World Series. 1936: Record 66,669 at Yankee Stadium for 4th game of World Series against the New York Giants. 1944: First and only All-St. Louis World Series between the Browns and Cardinals, all games played at Sportsman's Park.

This day in History; Oct 4, 1955: So-called Brooklyn bums win their first World Series On October 4, 1955, the Brooklyn Dodgers win the World Series at last, beating the New York Yankees 2-0. They’d lost the championship seven times already, and they’d lost five times just to the Yanks--in 1941, 1947, 1949, 1952 and 1953. But in 1955, thanks to nine brilliant innings in the seventh game from 23-year-old lefty pitcher Johnny Podres, they finally managed to beat the Bombers for the first (and last) time. The Dodgers had lost the first two games of the series at Yankee Stadium--it was the first time in history, in fact, that a team came back to win a seven-game World Series after losing the first two--and then won three in a row at home. The Yanks came back in the sixth, forcing a tiebreaking Game 7 in front of 62,465 fans in the Bronx. In the fourth inning of the last game, Brooklyn got its first run when catcher Roy Campanella hit a double and Gil Hodges sent him home with a well-placed single. In the ...
On this day in 1947 the first televised World Series game was played at Yankee Stadium as the Yankees hosted the Brooklyn Dodgers. The Yankees won that day 5-3 but the series went to a 7th game, which the Yankees also won. The Dodger lament "Wait 'til next year!" was born after this Series.

What is your favorite Mariano Rivera moment? So many to consider. My favorite used to be him collapsed on the mound after Aaron Boone hit the home run off Tim Wakefield to put the Yankees into the World Series. It is now and will always be his last appearance at Yankee Stadium when he was taken out of the game by Andy Pettite and Derek Jeter. I am still in denial that the Sandman won't be coming out of the bullpen next year but all GREAT things do come to an end. I have never thought about going to Cooperstown for an induction ceremony but I will be calling the hotels next week to make reservations for when Rivera is inducted. Once again, thanks Mo for bringing not only pride back to the Yankees but being someone all fans can look up to. Somewhere in heaven the Boss is smiling and thanking you for everything you did for the organization!!!
On this date in 1976 Muhammad Ali scored a controversial 15 round decision over the late Ken Norton at Yankee Stadium ! Just 16 days later at that same venue Chris Chambliss homered off Mark Littell in game 5 of the ALCS to put the Yanks in the World Series for the first time in 12 years.
What a great moment it was at Yankee Stadium. And I also bid a fond farewell to the Sandman himself, Mariano Rivera. One of the best closers of the game, Mo has provided a lot of great memories for the sport of baseball, and of course his resume has shown that he is a worthy Baseball Hall of famer, winning five World Series titles with the Yankees, alongside Derek Jeter, and Andy Pettite, World Series MVP of 1999, and of course a 13 time MLB All Star. Thank you, Mo for the memories for all baseball fans, not just Yankees fans like myself. We will miss you. Jackie Robinson would be proud of you for wearing number 42 proudly.
We were there to watch Mariano Rivera close the final game of the World Series at Yankee Stadium. Not many people can say that
What a day of emotion as I just watched my brother-in-law's retirement press conference and Sunday will be an emotional day as he could be pitching his final home game at Yankee Stadium with my sister, and kids, my parents and Andy's parents all in attendance as they fly up to NY tomorrow. Before the game they are going to honor Andy and Mariano Rivera and I know it will be exciting. There is so much I could say and for lack of space I can't, but for starters here is a brief tally of Andy's historic career in Yankee Pinstripes and in MLB. 5 World Series Championships, 8 World Series appearances, 2001 ALCS MVP when Yankees defeated Seattle in 6 games, All-time leader in Post Season wins in MLB history with 19. Most starts in World Series History of any pitcher in MLB history. Yankees all-time leader in Strikeouts and 3rd all time in wins. BUT EVEN BIGGER THAN ALL OF THIS IS the fact that Andy is a follower of Jesus Christ, a man of God, a good husband, father, son, brother-in-law, and friend! Andy, ...

The Mets have done the unthinkable and swept the Yankees in the 2013 Subway Series with a 3-1 win at Yankee Stadium. It was the first time that the Subway Series was swept since 2003 when the Yankees won all six meetings against the Mets and eventually went to the World Series. Both starting pitchers Vidal Nuno and Dillon Gee pitched well. However, it was Gee who pitched like a Cy Young winner going 7 1/3 innings giving up one run on four hits and a season-high 12 strikeouts. The only mistake Nuno made in the game was giving up Marlon Byrd's two-run home run in the second inning to give the Mets a 2-0 lead. The only Yankee run was Robinson Cano's solo homer in the third inning to cut the lead in half. The Yankees had their chances early on in the inning to scrap some runs but could not able to get the big hits when needed once again. After Cano's homer, the Mets pitching retired the last 20 Yankee batters of the game and score an insurance run with two outs in the eighth inning to give them a 3-1 lea ...
New York (AP) - In 1977, New York City was deep into its worst fiscal crisis ever. Riots erupted that summer during a blackout.

I will still support my teams, the Dolphins, Heat, Panthers and Marlins, because this is where I'm from... I'm a Native.
In honor of what would have been Mickey Mantle's 81st birthday. IT WAS THE *** My most vivid memory of Yankee Stadium took place in the 1966 season. My Mom, Dad and I went to see the Yankees play the Tigers on August 26, 1966. It wasn’t the first game I went to but it was the most memorable. Al Downing was pitching for the Yankees and Earl Wilson was pitching for the Tigers. Mickey Mantle had not been in the lineup for several weeks and was not expected to play that day. I was 13 years old and I was a diehard fan. I cried when Bill Mazeroski hit the home run to beat the Yankees in the World Series six years earlier. The Yankees were struggling that year. Their lineup included Horace Clarke at SS, Bobby Richardson at 2B, Tom Tresh in LF, Joe Pepitone at 1B, Roger Maris in RF, Steve Whitaker in CF, Jake Gibbs at catcher and Clete Boyer at 3B. During the game, I think it was Bill Freehan from Detroit who swung all the way around and his bat hit Jake Gibbs on the wrist, breaking it, and he was ...

14 years ago today. my Padres took a commanding lead early in GAME 1 of the World Series on Tony Gwynn's bomb off the fascade of Yankee Stadium's right field bleachers. Right about at this point of the game, my wife said, I'm having a BABY! I took her to the hospital and periodically peaked at the score to watch my Padres blow Game 1 on Tino Martinez's Grand Slam. However, my Padres heartbreak was completely forgotten as my BOUNCING BABY BOY Bailey Hoolihan came into the world!!! Happy Birthday to the best son a Dad could have!! I am so proud of the kind and caring young man you have become. This will be the last year I will say that without having to LOOK UP into your face :) Love you boy wonder :) Ok, I'm still not over the Padres of 1998 for the record.
9 years ago today, me, My brothers and my parents were with my sister in stands at Yankee Stadium witnessing Aaron Boone's walkoff homer to win pennant for Yankees over Red Sox and send them to ther World Series!! Wonderful Memories!!
In a series that resembled a rematch of the franchises' first encounter in 1926, the upstart "Redbirds", led by third baseman and captain Ken Boyer, took on the veteran Yankees, which featured his younger brother Clete, also an All-Star third baseman. Ken Boyer's stunning Grand Slam home run in Game 4 at Yankee Stadium, along with the overpowering pitching of their young twirler Bob Gibson, resulted in a 4 games to 3 win by the Cardinals. This was the last Series appearance by the "Old" Yankees dynasty, which had appeared in 14 of the 16 series played from 1949 to 1964. The Cardinals are the only of the original eight National League teams to hold an overall World Series edge against the Yankees, 3 Series to 2.
Ok, if the Cardinals and Yankees make it to the World Series, I hope one of the following occurs: 1) The aircraft that flys over during the National Anthem accidentally gets the order to drop a bomb on Busch Stadium. 2) Aliens abduct Bud Selig and the World Series trophy. 3) 2012 happens two months early. 4) Game 7 is tied in the 9th inning and a rain delay suspends the game. Rain then proceeds to drench St. Louis forever. 5) Al Bundy and the members of NO MA'AM run onto the field and blind the players with their beer bellies. 6) Joseph Smith resurrects the new Jerusalem in Missouri and Mormons flood the stadium and the world ends. 7) Rammstein accidentally sets both stadiums on fire as part of their pre-game concerts in a "on a whim partnership" with MLB Network. 8) Babe Ruth's ghost rises from the grave and demands an apology for tearing down the old Yankee Stadium and doesn't leave the premises due to the lack of an acceptable apology. 9) Vince Mcmahon repeatedly hits the pitcher with a steel chair whe ...
Vintage CC buries O's, lifting Yanks to ALCS By Bryan Hoch / MLB.com | 10/12/2012 10:10 PM ET Comments (1489) BALGm5: CC goes distance, sends Yanks to ALCS New York -- CC Sabathia strapped his team's hopes across his broad shoulders and answered the call of a must-win challenge, delivering an outing worthy of his ace billing to punch the Yankees' ticket into the American League Championship Series. Sabathia allowed just four hits in a dominant complete-game effort as the Yankees moved eight victories from their ultimate goal of a 28th World Series Championship, defeating the Orioles, 3-1, in Game 5 of the AL Division Series on Friday at Yankee Stadium. Detroit's Doug Fister is scheduled to start against Andy Pettitte.
Fun Fact: Andy Pettitte will take the hill tonight in Game 2 of a playoff series for the Yankees for the 15th time. In the previous 14, the Yankees have won 9 times. Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen will be making his 33rd overall MLB appearance. NB: While researching this Fun Fact, I learned that the chick who played Pam on "Martin" sang the National Anthem at Yankee Stadium for Game 2 of the 1996 World Series. That's almost a Fun Fact in and of itself.

I've been a Yankee fan since 1968. I was 11 then. I could tell you stories upon stories for days and days on this great franchise. 44 years of amazing fun and glory. From Phil Rizzuto, Bill White and Frank Messer to Jerry Kenny, Frank Tepedino and Jack Aker, I saw them all. I heard games and saw games that Yankee fans would forget. I saw Thurman Munson's first and last game. I was at the last game at the first Yankee Stadium before they renovated it. I was at the first game at the new Yankee Stadium against the Kansas City Royals after the city renovated it. I have seen 7 World Series Championships out of 11 World Series appearances in my life. WIth all the great memories I have of this team, I have everything to be thankful for. From Roy White, Bobby Murcer, to Celerino Sanchez. From Danny Cater, Walt "No Neck" Williams to Charlie Spikes. From George "Doc" Medich to Fritz Peterson and *** Kekich swapping wives, from Joe Pepitone's hair dryer and Steve Hamilton's "folly floater." I saw it all and remembe ...
Just after the New York Yankees won their 27th World Series in New Yankee Stadium (just as they did in old Yankee Stadium the 1st year it opened) NO disrespe...
The Houston Business Journal published a booklet on the 100th anniversary of Rice University. Lots of interesting history tidbits in there. A lot of it I knew. Here is something I never heard before now: 1962 -- Rice receives the ultimate alumni gift when John Cox, ’27, donates Yankee Stadium to his alma mater. Cox, owner of the venue through a 1955 stock acquisition, gives Rice all capital stock in the Major League Baseball stadium, then valued at $4.5 million, along with lucrative leasing rights. The university makes millions renting the House that Ruth Built to the New York Yankees over the next nine years, a dark period when the Bronx Bombers didn’t win a single pennant, much less a World Series. In 1966, Rice repaints the stadium blue and white. In 1971, the city of New York acquires Yankee Stadium by eminent domain and pays Rice a $2.5 million condemnation fee.
Hey, Everyone!! We took my mother to the Yankee game tonight and they trounced Toronto Blue Jays 10-7. Ichiro hit a 2 run homer and Nick Swisher hit a Grand Slam. Quite a new stadium but I like the old one built in 1923. I like AT&T Park in SF even better. I realized the SF Giants are still my team...Maybe I'll go back to Yankee Stadium when the Yankees play the Giants in the World Series this year. Go Giants!
Andy Pettitte wants to help the Yankees right now, but he'll have to wait a few days to do so. The five-time World Series champion will start for the Yankees when the Bombers take on the Blue Jays on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium.
Michelle Obama and Jill Biden get booed at Yankee Stadium for game 1 of the 2009 World Series. The announcer quickly comes in and cuts it off.
The Yankees need a healthy CC Sabathia if they hope to make a legitimate run at the World Series, but Hiroki Kuroda continues to prove that he’s no slouch, either. Kuroda limited the Rangers to just two hits in a complete game 3-0 win tonight at Yankee Stadium. It was his fourth career shutout and…
I was doing a little reflecting just now, and I realized that this January marks my 50th birthday! And like anyone who reaches that milestone in their life, I have a personal wish list for the big 5-0 ... going to a World Series game, or going to the next MLB All-Star Game, or catching a ball game at Yankee Stadium or Dodger Stadium ... or seeing Paul McCartney live in concert with a backstage meet & greet with Sir Paul (OK, I know the latter is quite a long shot, but I can dream a little!).
La Russa went to Yankee Stadium to deliver a World Series ring to Colby Rasmus, but somehow a meeting failed to happen.
New York Yankees,e Yankees have won 26 World Series and play at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx
Better yet, Reggie Jackson replaces Steven Tyler, then they both sing the National Anthem at Yankee Stadium for the World Series
Robert Leo "Bob" Sheppard (October 20, 1910–July 11, 2010) long-time public address announcer for numerous New York area college and professional sports teams, in particular the MLB New York Yankees (1951–2007), and the NFL New York Giants (1956–2006). Sheppard announced more than 4,500 Yankees baseball games over a period of 56 years, including 22 pennant-winning seasons and 13 World Series Championships; he called 121 consecutive postseason contests, 62 games in 22 World Series, and six no-hitters, including three perfect games. He was also the in-house voice for a half-century of Giants football games, encompassing 9 conference championships, 3 NFL championships (1956, 1986, 1990), and the game often called "the greatest ever played", the classic 1958 championship loss to Baltimore. His smooth, distinctive baritone and precise, consistent elocution became iconic aural symbols of both the old Yankee Stadium and Giants Stadium. Reggie Jackson famously nicknamed him "The Voice of God", while Carl ...
In the 2009 World Series, Pedro Martinez once again found himself hearing the "Who's your @ Yankee Stadium
print e-mail Yankees Press Release 06/25/2012 11:54 AM EST Yankees to hold 66th Old-Timers' Day on Sunday, July 1 Nearly 50 former Yankees scheduled to attend The New York Yankees today announced that nearly 50 former Yankees will be on hand at the 66th annual Old-Timers’ Day on Sunday, July 1, at Yankee Stadium.

Former Yankees and current YES Network broadcasters David Cone, Paul O’Neill and Lou Piniella will a ...
Once again, I felt my knees weaken. Whether because of the crowd of policemen or the spiritual high of the Temple Mount, I started to swoon. In a way, I felt like I was out of my league, a little lost kid who had wandered out onto the playing field at Yankee Stadium during the World Series. What was I doing making trouble for the Israeli police? What craziness had lodged in my head?
CC Sabathia's on the 15-day Disabled List, Andy Pettitte's out for at least 6 weeks, but it doesn't matter. My New York Yankees for the 17th time in 18 years look ready to make the playoffs again. Message for the haters: We won only 1 title in the last 11 years yet keep in mind we won 5 in the past 17 years. Let's not forget my Yankees dominated you all by winning 20 titles of it's first 40 years in the old Yankee Stadium. None of your teams did all that, so for what we do on and off the field, give us our full respect when we make the playoffs this year and hopefully clinch World Series title :)
Was laughable when Kenny Rogers wasn't suspended during 06 World Series. Had more tar on hand than Brett had on bat in Yankee Stadium
Big MTP day at Yankee Stadium on Monday. Yogi Berra: won 13 World Series rings. He won ten as a player for the New York Yankees. He also won three rings as a coach, twice with the Yankees (1977 & 1978) and once with the New York Mets. My partner Bart has 3 Super Bowl rings; two with NY Giants and one with SF. My son will be impressed with all those rings. I have a wedding ring, does that count for anything? How hard is it to get a nose ring before Monday? I need more rings.
Say "Yankee Stadium," and fans think "World Series." The New York Yankees have won 108 World Series games, but, ironically, they lost the first one ever played at the Stadium...
Please remind me why the Reds got rid of Josh Hamilton. Not only has he led his team to the World Series, but he had the memorable Home Run Derby record total at Yankee Stadium and then tonight. One of the rarest feats in Major League history. Only 16 times including tonight has someone hit 4 home runs in one game. Josh went 5 for 5 with 4 long balls. Wish he were a Red, but still a big fan. Matthew 5:16
Tonight, legendary Beatles frontman Paul McCartney, easily one the greatest living musical acts, begins a two-night concert run at Yankee Stadium, home of the 27-time World Series champion New York Yankees. It doesn't get much bigger than that in the Big Apple. - Major League Baseball news
