RUNS SCORED: Bernie's already tied with Roy White for 10th on the list. If he scores 100 this year, he'll move past Crosetti, White, ...

  9. Yankees trivia

    Pinstripes were added to New York Yankee jerseys in 1912, and then shelved for two seasons. They were re-introduced in 1915. The Cleveland Indians experimented by placing uniform numbers on the sleeves of their baseball players in 1916; seven years later, the St. Louis Cardinals also made a trial-run with such a numbering system. Both tests of uniform numbers lasted just a short period of time. The New York Yankees introduced numbers sewn on the backs of players' jerseys in 1929. This...

  17. 1961 Yankees show

    Wow... Now that was a great show...I didn't realize Kubek was so tall !! When he got up to take a photo with me he towered over me !! Tony is without a doubt one of the nicest fellows you'll ever meet. We had a nice little conversation about Mickey (He was a little surprised that I wanted him to sign a ball already signed by Mickey, until I told him I had 3 !!) Alot of these shows "run" you through lines but these Yankees would have NONE of that... Bobby Richardson is another very nice...
