The Yankees announced yesterday that Luis Severino will start the Wild Card Game , and the more I thought about it the last few days, the more I realized Severino should get the ball. The version typically played is an abbreviated version of Kate Smith 's rendition. And I know he got lit up in the Wild Card Game last year. It was the first triple-deck venue in baseball and seated an astounding 58, people. Given the numbers and the heat maps, expect the Yankees to attack Piscotty with soft stuff down and away all night in the Wild Card Game.

Martin adamantly stated that the funeral was more important, and that he did not care if they made it back in time. Bobby Murcer , a close friend of Munson's, was chosen to give the eulogy at his funeral. In a nationally televised and emotional game, Murcer used Munson's bat which he gave to his fallen friend's wife after the game , and drove in all five of the team's runs in a dramatic 5—4 walk-off victory.
Before the game, Munson's locker sat empty except for his catching gear, a sad reminder for his teammates.

Despite the Yankees' lack of pitching success during the s, they had three of the premier pitchers of the early s on their roster during these years in Al Leiter , Doug Drabek and José Rijo.
All were mismanaged and dealt away before they could reach their full potential, with only Rijo returning much value — he was traded to the Oakland A's in the deal that brought Henderson to New York.

The 4—0 loss to the Chicago White Sox was the largest margin of any no-hitter loss in the 20th century. Ironically, the Yankees and Hawkins were no-hit for six innings in a rain-shortened game against the White Sox 11 days later.
During the season, Yankee fans started to chant "! The poor showings in the s and s soon changed.

The "Bleacher Creatures" are a notorious group of season ticket holders who occupied Section 39 in the right field bleachers at the old Yankee Stadium, and occupy Section in the new one. They are known for their strict allegiance to the Yankees, and are often merciless to opposing fans who sit in the section and cheer for the road team.
They enjoy taunting the opposing team's right fielder with a series of chanting and slandering. The "creatures" got their nickname from New York Daily News columnist Filip "Flip" Bondy, who spent the season sitting in the section for research on his book about the group, Bleeding Pinstripes: No separate fan sections existed at the old stadium and during the early years of the current Yankee Stadium for fans of the team's indiviual players, save for the aformentioned Bleacher Creatures, in the past these fans, which were seated with other fans on the stands, carried placards or streamers to show support to the players when they were on the field at home.
It was only during the season when the Yankees management ordered the creation of a special cheer section within Section for the fans of the rising outfielder Aaron Judge , known as The Judge's Chambers, making them the second AL team and first NY and East Coast MLB team to do so, following the example of the Seattle Mariners.

The Frank Sinatra cover version is traditionally played after victories, and the Liza Minnelli original version after losses. When the Yankees take the field before the start of every game, 2 Unlimited 's " Get Ready For This " is played, with the fans usually clapping along.

The retired numbers were displayed behind the old Yankee Stadium 's left field fence and in front of the opposing team's bullpen, forming a little alley that connects Monument Park to the left field stands. When the franchise moved across the street to the new stadium, the numbers were incorporated into Monument Park that sits place in center field between both bullpens. The 21 numbers are placed on the wall in chronological order, beginning with Lou Gehrig 's number 4. This was retired soon after Gehrig left baseball on July 4, , the same day he gave his famous farewell speech.

Ten years later, on April 17, , the Yankees honored Robinson by mounting the logo of Jackie Robinson Day with a corresponding plaque alongside the rest of the retired numbers.
When the Yankees moved to the second Yankee Stadium, they replaced the Jackie Robinson Day logo with a number 42 that resembled the other retired numbers. Later on they replaced the number 42 so that it resembled the Dodger's style, and on September 22, , a plaque was dedicated to Robinson in Monument Park. Also, the number 42 dedicated to Robinson was removed entirely and replaced with one for Mariano Rivera.
