At that time, the following people will be introduced: Jesse Barfield, Scott Bradley, Dr. Bobby Brown, Homer Bush, Rick Cerone, David Cone, Bucky Dent, Al Downing, Brian Doyle, Mariano Duncan, John Flaherty, Whitey Ford, Joe Girardi, Rich “Goose” Gossage, Ron Guidry, Charlie Hayes, Ricky Henderson, Arlene Howard(widow), Helen Hunter(widow), Reggie Jackson, Scott Kamieniecki, Pat Kelly, Don Larsen, Graeme Lloyd, Hector Lopez, Sparky Lyle, Kevin Maas, Jill Martin(widow), Tino Martinez, Leo Mazzilli, Ramiro Mendoza, Stump Merrill, Gene Michael, Gene Monahan, Diana Munson(widow), Kay Mercer(widow), Jeff Nelson, Paul O’Neill, Jorge Posada, Willie Randolph, Tim Raines, Mickey Rivers, Tanyon Sturtze, Ralph Terry, Marcus Thames, Joe Torre, Mike Torrez, Roy White and Bernie Williams.

Following the processional, the Yankees are planning to honor the 2017 Hall of Fame inductee Tim Raines before the start of the much-anticipated Old-Timers’ Game.

This is an event that is absolutely on my bucket list of things to attend before I die. If you have heard YES Network analysts David Cone and Paul O’Neill talk favorably about it, you know that it is an event that means as much to the players as it does to the fans.

With it being his very first ever OTG, Jorge Posada is going to go deep. Write that down.

After losing my eyesight as a result of a brain tumor in 1996, baseball and music ushered me back to reality and led me to who I am today. I turned my love of the game and for my New York Yankees into writing for the best company in sports: Elite Sports NY. i use my Psychology & Music degree from James Madison University to articulate my thoughts in my writing and use my vocal/piano skills to professionally play music in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
