This Day In New York Yankees History 6/19

On this day in 1995 the Yankees signed Darryl Strawberry to a one year contract even though he was currently being suspended for 60 days due to, what else, drug abuse. Strawberry would end up spending five seasons in the Bronx and helped the Yankees to multiple World Series titles in the mid and late 90's.

On this day in 2008 switch pitcher Pat Venditte faced switch hitter Ralph Henriquez in what was a very frustrating at bat. Every time Ralph would switch sides of the play Pat Venditte would switch the side he was throwing on really frustrating Henriquez. Henriquez was told that he had to choose which side he wanted to bat on before the at bat began.
