This Day In New York Yankees History 9/19

On this day in 1937 the Detroit Tigers  Hank Greenburg becomes the first player to ever hit a home run into the black seats at Yankees Stadium.

On this day in 2001 Roger Clemens improved his record to 20-1 becoming the first pitcher in major league history to do so. Clemens won his final 16 decisions of the season to reach the mark.

On this day in 2011 Mariano Rivera recorded his 602nd save of all time passing Trevor Hoffman for the all time mark. Rivera did so against the Minnesota Twins at home in front of the smallest crowd in the then three year history of the newest version of Yankees Stadium.


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