This Day in Yankees History:
1918 - The Yankees score in every inning except the 8th as they beat the Cleveland Indians, 19-3.
1977 - OF Reggie Jackson and Manager Billy Martin become involved in a dugout confrontation that is seen live on national television during the Game of the Week broadcast on NBC TV. Playing against the Red Sox in Boston, Martin removes Jackson from the game for loafing on a ball hit to the outfield, replacing him with reserve OF Paul Blair - a decision Jackson questions his manager about to the point where coaches Elston Howard and Yogi Berra separate them.
2009 - The Yankees are shut out by Craig Stammen - who earns his first MLB career victory - and the Nationals, 3-0, in a game that starts over five-and-a-half hours later than scheduled. It is the first game since the opening of the ballpark that April where the scoring did not comprise of at least one home run. The few fans remaining at the stadium at first pitch are invited to watch the game from the field level seats.
Since there hasn't been a lot of activity around here so far this year, I was wondering what would make you more likely to take part in the GDP..?
