Old Timers’ Day 2019 is This Sunday

Mark your calendar, this Sunday the annual New York Yankee tradition continues as the Yanks take on the Astros on Old-Timers’ Day

Old Timers’ Day is this Sunday

At Crane’s Mill, it’s no secret that we’re big New York Yankee fans. This Sunday, June 22, is one of our favorite days of the year—the annual Old Timers’ Day at Yankee Stadium.

On this one nostalgic afternoon, great players in Bronx Bomber history come together for a special day including the pomp and circumstance of the grand introductions and of course, the Old Timers’ Day Game itself.

Through the years, there have been so many extraordinary players that have donned the pinstripes—from legends like Yogi Berra, Don Larsen, and Whitey Ford to 1970’s favorites “Goose” Gossage, Reggie Jackson, and Ron Guidry, to newer retirees Bernie Williams, Paul O’Neil, and Any Petite, every Yankee fan is bound to have a personal favorite or two in the lineup.

After the festivities, we get to enjoy our team against the 2017 World Series champion Houston Astros. You can bet the usual group of Yankee fan residents will be gathered in the Cherry Blossom Lounge to catch the game. In fact, our director of community programming makes certain that sports games are queued up in the lounge every weekend os residents can cheer on their favorites teams and enjoy their happy hour favorites too.
