Yankee Stadium Legacy: #48 Graig Nettles

Graig Nettles outstanding play in the field and his ability at the plate was a major reason the New York Yankees ended a 14 season World Series title drought in 1977. The Yankees won back to back World Series in 1977 and 1978 with the help of Reggie Jackson as well. When Nettles wasn't hitting home runs at the plate he was making stellar plays at third base. In 1977 Nettles had 37 HR's and 107 RBI's, which were both career highs.
