It’s one of the great events in Major League Baseball: The New York Yankees’ Old-Timers’ Day is scheduled for this coming Sunday, July 1.
Though most MLB teams invite former greats back for ceremonies like this one, none is as emotionally resounding as the Yankees event; there’s something very special when the likes of Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford and Don Larsen don the home pinstripes and take the field, even if it is only to wave to the crowd during introductions. This will be the 66th time the Yankees have held the event.
If you can’t make it to the ballpark, you’re in luck: the ceremonies and the game will be broadcast on the YES Network. (Sadly, no dedicated MLB Network coverage, but we expect a look-in or three.) Ceremonies are scheduled to begin at 11:15 a.m. with the traditional Old-Timers’ game to follow. The Yankees will then host the Chicago White Sox at 2:05 p.m.
