This Day in New York Yankees History 4/22: Yankees Turn the Triple Play

On this day in 2010 Alex Rodriguez started the Yankees first triple play since 1968 against the Oakland Athletics in a loss. The scoring on the play would be the traditional 5-4-3 triple play.

Also on this day in 1997 Yankees rookie Chase Wright would give up four consecutive home runs to the Boston Red Sox. The batters that would hit the historic home runs were Manny Ramirez, JD Drew, Mike Lowell, and Jason Varitek.

Also on this day in 1915 the Yankees would don the pinstripes for good after abandoning the fashion for the 1913 and 1914 seasons.

Finally on this day in 1903 the New York Highlanders, which are currently known as the New York Yankees, would play their first game in the franchise’s history, a loss to the Washington Senators.
