• Should The Yankees Do Something On May 30th?

    Posted by on March 18th, 2014 · Comments (10)

    May 29th will be the 19th anniversary of Derek Jeter’s major league debut. But, the Yankees have an off-day on that date this season. The do, however, have a game at home on May 30th (against the Twins). It’s a Friday night.

    At the least, when he comes to bat for the first time in the game, they should throw something up on the board regarding the anny, right?

      There will be plenty done for Jeter this year, both home and away. Recognizing 19 years would be a little much. Who is ever recognized for 19 years?

      @ NC Yankee:
      It’s not the years, it’s just recognizing that it’s the anniversary of his big league debut…and that this will be his last year.

      Aside from showing a clip of his first game and homer I don’t really think they should go out of there way for more ceremonies. We’ll get enough Derek Jeter stuffed down our throats all year that I don’t think he will need it.

      Honestly, I’m tired of all these ceremonious walk off years. I just want to watch baseball.

      @ Corey:
      I agree, on the field, leave it to a simple mention on the scoreboard, allow him to step out of the box, tip the helmet to the crowd. Off the field, you could do a lot – maybe a giveaway to the fans, like a bobble-head…assuming they can get the truck to show up on time.

      I was at that game. Didn’t end up with a bobblehead though. I refused to wait in lines that wrapped around the stadium.
