Monument Park comes alive as the Yankee greats don their retired numbers again.
On Saturday, Joe and I went to Old Timers’ Day. While the Yanks lost an uninspiring game in 13 innings, the Old Timers’ Day festivities were entraining. Scott Brosius and Paul O’Neill, reminders of the glory days (as Bruce sang over the loud speaker), made their Old Timers’ Day debuts. During the introductions, I snapped a full flickr photo set.
The day was filled with fond memories of Yankee past. Five of the Old Timers – Jim Leyritz, Darryl Strawberry, Homer Bush, Brosius and O’Neill – were younger than the Yanks’ starting pitcher that day. With John Sterling and Michael Kay emcee-ing, the Yankees honored the 1977 World Series team.
