This Day In New York Yankees History 9/21

On this day in 1956 the Yankees made some history that they probably did not want to as they stranded 20 base runners in a 13-7 loss to the Boston Red Sox. 20 runners stranded established a new major league record. I think 1956 turned out pretty well for us, well the last time I asked Don Larsen anyway.

On this day in 2008 the Yankees celebrated the 85 year history of Yankees Stadium as the Yankees beat the Orioles 7-2 in the final game played in the House that Ruth Built. Julia Ruth Stevens, the daughter of Babe Ruth, threw out the ceremonial first pitch and after the game the Yankees players, led by none other than Derek Jeter, stood on the mound and wished Yankees Stadium goodbye. 54,610 fans attended the final game in the Cathedral of baseball.
