‘Summer of Rivera’ closes with Yankee Stadium celebration

NEW YORK (AP) — Taking his familiar position on the Yankee Stadium rubber, Mariano Rivera wound up and delivered his famed cut fastball to his son, Mariano Jr.

It was high and outside, but no one seemed to mind.

The pitch came Saturday during a pregame celebration for baseball’s greatest closer and capped off the “Summer of Rivera.” It’s stretch that saw him hit an inside-the-park homer and get a save during his debut in the New York Yankees’ annual Old-Timers’ Day game and be inducted into the Hall of Fame as the first unanimous selection.

“I’m glad I did OK,” Rivera told the crowd.

And I thought the increasing number of retirement tours we’ve been getting lately have been obnoxious enough…..

Yankees-Orioles postponed after rain, grounds-crew fumble

The game between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles scheduled for Monday was postponed after a rain delay, with an apparent botched removal of the tarp by the grounds crew leaving Yankee Stadium with unplayable field conditions.

The game will be made up as the first game of a single-game admission doubleheader Wednesday. The opener will begin at 3:05 p.m. ET. Game 2 will begin no earlier than 6:35 p.m.

The Monday game was originally slated to start at 6:35 p.m., but because of rain, the Yankees bumped the start back to 7:45 p.m. The grounds crew began removing the tarp a few minutes before the new start time, but the water on the tarp wound up getting dumped in left field.

In other words, it isn’t just the Yankees’ medical staff who are incompetent….

Kate Smith’s ‘God Bless America’ Out At Yankee Stadium Over Racist Songs

The Yankees have decided to no longer run Kate Smith’s version of “God Bless America” during their seventh-inning stretch because of Smith’s affiliation with songs that carried racist lyrics.

But don’t getcher hopes up too much.
