This is pretty cool, although Paul O'Neill got a much bigger ovation than Reggie Jackson which is odd to me. I know O'Neill is popular there, but Reggie is a Hall of Famer.

Very cool so far, i like the families representing their Dads.

PLEASE, no negativity in this thread. If you can't appreciate the great players who have played here, please don't respond to this thread. There is plenty of negativity around here in other places.

Wait, you mean it's not about hate, venom, revenge, burning down stadiums, and complaining about ESPN? ;)

Yes, the greatest sport in the world is about history, fathers and sons, and the love of the game. That's it!!

Very well done, for those who didn't see it was pretty much the same thing we did here but with announcers Michael Kay and John Sterling announcing each player or their family member if they had passed away.

Bernie Williams came out last and probably got the biggest ovation of the night. The current lineup was introduced last and everyone ran to their positions.

Not odd at all considering 99% of Yankee fans are bandwagon fans that started watching baseball after '96.

More than any other guy, O'Neill represents their most recent dynasty. They love him for the right reasons. He busted his ass and would do anything to win. Ironically, he's sort of the opposite of Reggie Jackson in that regard.

It was pointed out on Espn....

No mention of Roger Clemens and yet, Knobloch, Pettite and Giambi were all mentioned in the Mitchell Report, and had highlights created for them to show what they've done for the Yankees.

And the worse of them all, was no mention of Joe Torre despite winning 4 World Series and making the playoffs for 12 straight years that he managed the team. They didn't even flash his picture on the scoreboard!

Kinda reminds me of the Joe Stalin era where those that fallout, are erased from the history books and pictures.

Torre Snubbed

Four World Series titles and 12 consecutive playoff appearances were not enough to merit Joe Torre a mention in Sunday’s closing ceremonies at Yankee Stadium. Since Torre was as major part of the Yankees’ success since 1996, it was a glaring omission.
