When Was The Last Time There Was A Mutually Meaningful September Game Played Between The Orioles & Yankees In The Bronx?
It would have to be a year where the O’s and Yanks were both good. And, to be technical, it could not be 1974 or 1975 – since the Yankees played in Queens during those seasons. (Yeah, if it’s not in Yankee Stadium, it doesn’t count.)
Based on that, I would think that it would have to be one of these seasons:
1997, 1996, 1980, 1977, 1976, 1970 or 1960.
However, the O’s did not play in New York during September in 1977 or 1980. And, the Yankees and Orioles were not as close in September (as they are now) during 1997, 1996, 1976, or 1970.
So, you may have to go back to this double-header back in 1960.
That’s before my time. Here’s more on it.
Update: I saw on the YES telecast of the game tonight that they said the last time the Yankees and O’s played each other, this late in the season, when they were 3 games apart on the standings was 1996. So, I stand corrected.
