Have you ever been to Old Timers’ Day? It’s a lot of fun but it’s also an incredibly long day at the park. Thankfully it’s not too hot out today, that only makes it worse. I’m not old enough to really appreciate any of the guys that played the majority of their career before the mid-to-late 80’s or so, but seeing players from my era is always a blast. Especially the dynasty Yankees, in particular the guys from 1996. No matter how many World Titles they win from here on out, those guys are always going to be special to me just because they were part of my first championship as a fan. You don’t forget that.
The full roster of old timers’ can be found here. First timers include Bernie Williams, Joe Torre, and Lou Piniella. The YES Network will carry all Old Timers’ Day festivities starting at 11:30am ET and will last for two hours or so. The Yankees and Rockies will play the rubber game of their series after that. Enjoy!
