Derek Jeter Passes Willie Mays For 10th On All Time Hit List

Congratulations Derek!

Rays @ Yankees 9/14/12

The Yankees will host the Rays tonight in the first game of a three game weekend set with a lot more room between them and the Rays then they had just three days ago. Coming off a sweep at the hands of the Orioles the Rays will be fighting for their playoff lives now trailing the Yankees/Orioles and the Tigers for that last wild card spot. There are a lot of question marks that come with this game as the Yankees send CC Sabathia to the mound looking for any kind of command and consistency and the Rays send David Price for the first time since missing time with shoulder discomfort. The game will be televised at 7:05 pm ET on YES and MLB Network.

This Day In Yankees History : 9/14/12

In 1974 Graig Nettles of the Yankees and Jim Nettles of the Tigers became the second set of brothers to both hit a home run against each other in the same game. The Yankees ended up beating the Tigers 10-7 in that game.

In 2007 Shelley Duncan was signing an autograph for ten year old Red Sox fan Griffin Whitman when he wrote "RED SOX SUCK" and signed his name. He received a ton of negative feedback from this and I will never understand why.
