With the “Judge’s Chambers” being announced this week, the fun continues with more player-themed sections for the New York Yankees.
Earlier this week, we learned that the New York Yankees put a section in right field to honor their superstar-in-the-making, rookie right fielder Aaron Judge, called the “Judge’s Chambers”.
Similarly, ESPN’s Andrew Marchand proposes an idea that the Yankees should consider putting in a section for the longest-tenured (and hottest) Yankee, Brett Gardner, entitled “Gardner’s Gardeners”.
With that in mind, here is a look at seven players, whose namesake, play on the field or overall adoration from fans calls for their own individual player-themed section.
Sir Didi’s Roundtable
Now this may be tough to pull off in the sweltering months of July and August, but the play of our knighted shortstop during his time with New York absolutely calls for a section with iron-clad fans holding foam swords and shields, cheering for their man.
Sir Didi Gregorius is a fan favorite and deserves that extra recognition. Besides, he came through with the loss of Derek Jeter and has made us *almost* forget about that All-Star shortstop.
It’s not just because he’s got one of the coolest nicknames on the team, but you cannot help but love the all-out play of the diminutive utility man Ronald “Toe” Torreyes.
Everyone in the section must be vertically challenged and armed with an enormous set of cardboard or foam nail clippers, just to add to the entertainment factor.
The Bird’s Nest
Whenever Greg Bird gets back to his long ball-hitting self, there is no section behind the first base dugout that makes more sense than this.
Complete with sticks and straw surrounding the section, anyone sitting here would be sporting what appears to be complete or portions of cracked egg shells and should be given gummy worms to snack on.
I guarantee you Brett Gardner will be taking residence in this section on his off days. You know, being an avid Bird-watcher and all.
With the breakout campaign of the potential All-Star second baseman Starlin Castro, this section should be a no-brainer.
Placed somewhere in the outfield, this group of seats will include all zodiac signs, complete with handheld or mounted telescopes and should join in singing “When You Wish Upon a Star” every time Castro goes deep.
Yo Soy Gary
The popular hashtag on Twitter seems primed for a section to honor the rising star backstop Gary Sanchez. If you get selected to sit there, you must be donning a Sanchez jersey, a rubber mask with Gary’s likeness on it and the only thing you can say is “yo soy Gary”, like something out of the saviors on The Walking Dead.
Holliday’s Vacation Club
Although he’s only been here for a short time, Matt Holliday’s effect on his teammates and the fans has not gone unnoticed.
So, please, make it absolutely mandatory for everyone in this section to be wearing sunglasses. Any women (or man) is required to wear the Kentucky Derby-style hats and lounge in chairs sporting sun umbrellas on the back.
Every time the seasoned vet does something spectacular, echoes of “happy holidays” will be heard bellowing from this section. During baseball season, every day is a Holliday!
Even though Aaron Hicks is having an All-Star-type season, he has trouble getting into the lineup on a daily basis with the plethora of outfielders on the Yankees.
In the event that he does, his play is absolutely deserving of a women-only section in the outfield. Every woman must be wearing a shirt with Aaron’s picture on it, the number 31 or a wedding dress.
