This Day In New York Yankees History 7/28

On this day in 1983 the George Brett pine tar incident home run was reversed and allowed. The remainder of the game would be resumed on August 18th of this year and the Yankees would go on to lose that game 5-4 against the Royals.

On this day in 1995 the Yankees acquired David Cone from the Toronto Blue Jays for Marty Janzen and two minor league players. This was widely considered one of the better trades in the Yankees history with all the success that he and the team had in the mid to late 90's.

On this day in 1996 Darryl Strawberry hit his 300th career home run in a walk off fashion against the Kansas City Royals in a 3-2 Yankees victory.
