• Gene “Stick” Michael

    Posted by on January 24th, 2013 · Comments (0)

    Gene Michael became the Yankees G.M. in August of 1990 – taking over what was probably the worst team in Yankees history, in terms of pitching and hitting.

    By 1993, he took that sorry roster and turned it into a team that won 88 games. And, the following season, the team was in first place when play stopped due to labor issues. Further, Stick’s team reached the post-season in 1995.

    Also, it was Michael’s cadre of players who led the Yankees to World Series rings in 1996, 1998, 1999 and 2000 (even though he was no longer G.M. of the team after 1995).

    Stick is currently 74-years old.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if the Yankees did something in his honor as payback for the way he turned around their franchise? If you agree, what would be appropriate?
