A Hidden Yankees Yearbook Got Plenty of New Signatures This Year - The New York Times

In return, many new players earned the right to join a tradition. Every player to appear in a Yankees game — from the longest-serving (the former shortstop Derek Jeter) to the shortest (King) — may scribble their name onto the wall of team history. Of the 54 players used this season, 22 made their Yankees debut, including some crucial additions: outfielder Mike Tauchman, infielders D.J. LeMahieu and Gio Urshela, and pitchers Adam Ottavino and James Paxton.

“It’s a cool tradition, whether you have one day as a Yankee or 10 or 18 years,” relief pitcher Zack Britton said. “It’s cool, especially for those guys who didn’t spend that much time here. Like, maybe one day when they’re retired, they come to the clubhouse and they’re able to show their grandkids their name up on the wall.”
