TMZ: World Series rings coming April 13th

By

Although many Yankee fans have assumed that the team would be getting their 2009 World Series rings at the team’s home opener on April 13, a recent report suggests otherwise it turns out they’re right. According to gossip site TMZ, the Yanks will be receiving their rings on April 13th at home against the Angels, the team they vanquished in the ALCS to reach the World Series. TMZ originally said they would receive their rings on the 14th, but they changed their story earlier today. The team, though, has yet to confirm this report.

    If only the the the seasoned opened with BOS @ NYY instead of the other way around. We could have the rings there… in front of the Sox.

  2. I can’t believe we’re actually citing TMZ as a source (and I use we because I did it, too)

    So how/when will the players that are on other teams(like Hinske,Hairston,etc.) get theirs? Mail perhaps?

  4. How will Matsui get his ring? Is he likely to participate in the actual ceremony or will he get his the same way as the other former Yankees?

    It would be pretty damn cool if the guy got an ovation while getting his ring with his former teammates.

      I assume that’s the way it will work. From what I’ve seen, former players are asked to “take a bow” during the ceremony. For some reason, I vividly remember Derek Lowe getting permission to leave the Dodgers and fly to Boston to be part of the ceremony. He came out in street clothes…huge ovation, etc.
