Yankee Stadium Legacy: #4 Wally Pipp

Wally Pipp was the man who famously replaced Lou Gehrig in the Yankees lineup in 1925 and the man who spent 11 seasons in Yankee Pinstripes. The first basemen batted a career high .329 in 1922 and finished eight in the American League MVP Award voting that season. Pipp also helped the Yankees reach three straight World Series starting in 1921 and also helped win one in 1923, beating the Giants.

4 days until Yankees Opening Day.
