This Day In Yankees History 4/27

On this day in 1947 the Yankees held Babe Ruth day to honor the ailing legend one last time at Yankees Stadium. The Washington Senators would win the game 1-0 in a pitchers duel.

On this day in 1982 the Yankees Stadium crowd welcomed back Reggie Jackson who was playing for the California Angels. The Yankees crowd was not happy about losing Mr October to free agency and even chanted "Steinbrenner sucks" during the game. The Yankees would lose a rain shortened game 3-1 and Reggie Jackson hit a home run.
