This Day in New York Yankees History 11/2: A Legend is Born!

On this day in 1985 a great Yankees fan Daniel Burch was born in Lebanon Hospital in the Bronx, New York. He would go on to co-own and create the "greatest Yankees blog ever" in his own very humble and biased opinion. Hey it was a slow day in New York Yankees history, sue me.

Also on this day in 1964 the Columbia Broadcasting System becomes the first corporate owner of a Major League Baseball team when they bought 80% of the New York Yankees. Dan Topping and Del Webb sold the stake in the Yankees for a staggering $11.2 million at the time. The Yankees would reward CBS with a sixth place finish in the American League and a second place finish in the American League East in their first year of ownership with a 77-85 record.


  1. Damn Daniel, you are one very young guy...happy Birthday and many, many, more even better birthdays to celebrate with your family!

    Be Greedy!

    1. Thank you sir! I don't feel young today for some reason. Probably has something to do with the fact that I helped a friend remove an engine from his car and I'm not in the same shape I was 10 years ago.

    2. Poor baby, come over and help me scrape (not sand) my wood floor of all the wax and the Boss's Toy Poodles discharge on about 1600sq. ft. of Oak WOOD!
      My goodness 30 years old, I think we should look into redoing your contract on this site, you are getting to be on the wrong side of 30. LOL!
      Prime of your life, young fellow, enjoy it as much as you can for as long as you can with your family. You have a fine start keep it going!

    3. Does this contract negotiation come attached to a raise? And I'd help if I could on that floor, I can't lie though I am forever grateful that I can't. LOL. Sounds like a job and a half.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
