|If you’re lucky enough to be attending this Saturday’s game against the Marlins, make sure you get to the stadium early. The Yanks will be celebrating the 60th annual Old-Timers' Day on the 24th, and living legends like Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, and Reggie Jackson will be there to remind fans of the “good old days” (‘when I was a Yankee, I had to walk 6 miles uphill, in the snow, barefoot, just to get to the stadium!’). Perfect gamer David Cone (right, wearing what will surely end up on my 2006 gift guide) will be making his first appearance as an Old-Timer, as will Darryl Strawberry, Dennis Rasmussen, Steve Kemp, Bobby Meacham, and Ross Moschitto. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the perfect game thrown by Don Larsen during the 1956 World Series against the (Brooklyn) Dodgers, and the Yanks will be honoring Larsen during the Old-Timers’ Day.
The Yankees Chick won’t be in New York until next week, so if any of you will be in attendance this weekend and are able to snap some pictures of the old men, please send them my way (I’ll credit you, simmer down). I’d love to do a tribute to those former Yanks and include some pictures of how they look now.
