This Day In New York Yankees History 8/13

On this day in 1995 Mickey Mantle died in a hospital in Dallas, Texas with his wife Merlyn at his side. The Indians were playing the Yankees as Yankees Stadium on this day and ironically the Indians lead off hitter was Kenny Lofton, who ironically wore the #7, and the screen at Yankees Stadium showed "now at bat #7, before the game.

On this day in 1998 Orlando Hernandez broke a 30 year Yankees rookie record when he struck out 13 Texas Rangers. Stan Bahnsen had the original mark for the Yankees as a rookie in 1968.
