This Day In New York Yankees History 6/28

On this day in 1939 the New York Yankees established the major league record for most home runs hit in a game in a doubleheader with a total of 13. The Yankees would sweep the Philadelphia Athletics on this day by beating the A's 23-2 in game one with eight home runs and 10-0 off five home runs in game two.

On this day in 1949 Joe DiMaggio finally came off the disabled list for the Yankees after missing  the first 69 games of the season with a heel injury. Joe D would hit four home runs in a three game sweep of the Boston Red Sox fresh out of the box.

On this day in 2009 Mariano Rivera joined a club with only one other member, the 500 saves club with Trevor Hoffman. Rivera also registered his first and only RBI of his career when he took a bases loaded walk in a 4-2 win over the New York Mets in Citi Field.
