Are the Yankees and MetLife running out of people to pull the Yankee Stadium countdown clock lever? Maybe so because now, they’re turning to the fans. The Yankees and Countdown Clock sponsor MetLife have teamed up for a contest in which one lucky fan will win the chance to pull the countdown lever on Saturday, September 13. The winner will also receive four tickets to the game, a chance to meet Joe Girardi and on-field access during batting practice. That day, the clock will go from nine to eight. I guess Yogi Berra, owner of the retired number eight, won’t pull the lever yet again this year.
Who am I kidding? I’m totally entering this contest.
