Yankee Stadium could host one final ceremony after all.
Plans are in the works to have Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte transfer home plate from the current ballpark into the new Yankee Stadium – perhaps on Nov. 8, according to a person familiar with the concept.
The four veteran Yankees are scheduled to be in New York on Nov. 7, for the sixth annual dinner to benefit Joe Torre’s ‘Safe at Home Foundation,’ established to prevent the cycle of domestic violence.
Does A-Rod get to move anything too? At times like these, in a way, it doesn’t even seem like he’s on the team. How many other teams would leave their highest paid star, and future Hall of Famer, out of something like this?
In any event, I’m happy for the four who get to do this – it’s a nice touch.
