This one is a simple query…how many times in Yankees history has the franchise had two players on the team, in a given season, where either player played at least 100 games in either LF or RF, and the players were shorter than six feet tall? Here’s the answer:
|1||1976||New York Yankees||AL||2||Oscar Gamble / Roy White|
|2||1969||New York Yankees||AL||2||Bobby Murcer / Roy White|
|3||1911||New York Highlanders||AL||2||Birdie Cree / Harry Wolter|
So, will 2010 be the 4th time in franchise history that the Yankees will pull this off? It all depends on whether or not you believe Nick Swisher is 6′ tall or 5′ 11″ – and if Brett Gardner will be the Yankees full-time left fielder this season.
