Yankees to honor Hideki Matsui on July 28th

Sure to be a Brooke Ballentyne blast!

Hideki Matsui will sign a one-day, minor-league contract on July 28 in order to retire as a Yankee, the team announced on Thursday afternoon. Matsui, the 2009 World Series MVP, will be honored in a ceremony that day at Yankee Stadium.

The date was picked because it is the 55th home game for the Yankees this season. Matsui wore No. 55 during his seven seasons in pinstripes. He hit 140 homers during that time.

OK, this made me LLOL (literally laugh out loud). At work. Thanks, Gonfalon.

#5 I was going to go with: Unlike most of these one day contracts, Matsui will be expected to play that day.

I hope the Yankees give him a big line drawing of a Monument Park plaque.
