Monahan highlight’s Old Timers’ Day rookiesBy
The Yankees announced the roster for this year’s Old Timers’ Day, with retired and long-time trainer Gene Monahan highlighting the crop of first timers. Early-1990s manager Stump Merrill will also make his Old Timers’ Day debut, as will Sterling Hitchcock, Matt Nokes (!), and Tanyon Sturtze. Standbys like Yogi Berra, Reggie Jackson, Rickey Henderson, Whitey Ford, Bernie Williams, and Paul O’Neill will be there as well. No Jorge Posada though, I figured he’d take at least year away first.
Old Timers’ Day is this Sunday, July 1st. The ceremonies are scheduled to begin at 11:15am ET before the Yankees take on the White Sox that afternoon.
