This Day in New York Yankees History 11/2: A Legend is Born!

On this day in 1985 a great Yankees fan Daniel Burch was born in Lebanon Hospital in the Bronx, New York. He would go on to co-own and create the "greatest Yankees blog ever" in his own very humble and biased opinion. Hey it was a slow day in New York Yankees history, sue me.

Also on this day in 1964 the Columbia Broadcasting System becomes the first corporate owner of a Major League Baseball team when they bought 80% of the New York Yankees. Dan Topping and Del Webb sold the stake in the Yankees for a staggering $11.2 million at the time. The Yankees would reward CBS with a sixth place finish in the American League and a second place finish in the American League East in their first year of ownership with a 77-85 record.


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY....Johnny Reb.
    Always liked your swagger, and sense of humor.
    God grant you many more.

    1. Yes, our great leader, hope you are around for the 50th Yankee World Series Win or longer!
      Have a great and healthy life, along with your family.


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