    "The Yankees are profoundly saddened by the passing of former United States secretary of state Henry Kissinger, who performed varied and vital diplomatic and advisory roles throughout his distinguished career. A lifelong friend of the Yankees organization, he was a frequent welcome guest of the Steinbrenner family at Yankee Stadium. We offer our heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and all who had the privilege of knowing him. He will be deeply missed.”
  • Rebels at Vicksburg Vowed Revenge Against the Yankee Who Killed Their Camel

    In the late 1850s, the U.S. Army experimented with using camels as pack animals in the American Southwest, where horses and mules routinely suffered from dehydration. Camels from the Ottoman Empire were shipped to the United States in 1853. Secretary of War Jefferson Davis ordered they be tested on routes across the desert to California. The camel experiment was a success, but the Army was wholly uninterested in camels. Before there could be an internal struggle about it, the Civil War broke out in 1861. The secretary of war became president of the Confederacy, and the idea died out. The...
  • Germán delivers MLB’s 1st perfect game since 2012

    OAKLAND -- Domingo Germán tossed Major League Baseball's first perfect game since 2012 in the Yankees' 11-0 win over the A's on Wednesday night at the Coliseum. It was the fourth perfect game in franchise history, and the first since David Cone against the Expos in 1999. After allowing 17 runs (15 earned) over 5 1/3 innings in his previous two starts, Germán entered Wednesday with the potential to make the wrong kind of history by becoming just the fifth pitcher in franchise history to allow seven-plus runs in three straight games. Instead, Germán snapped a streak of another kind...

YES’s traditional TV customers will be able to access the streaming service for free.

    New York Post ^ | March 13, 2023 | Dan Martin
    Joe Pepitone, the former Yankee known as much for his outlandish personality as his baseball career, died on Monday at 82, the team announced. “The Yankees are deeply saddened by the passing of former Yankee Joe Pepitone, whose playful and charismatic personality and on-field contributions made him a favorite of generations of Yankees fans even beyond his years with the team in the 1960s,” the team said in a statement. Pepitone, a Brooklyn native who was shot by a classmate in 1957, signed with the Yankees a year later and made his MLB debut with the organization in 1962.

    The COVID-driven rush of New Yorkers into Florida has turned into a stampede — with no end in sight. A record-breaking number of Empire State residents switched their driver’s licenses to the Sunshine State version last month, according to a Post analysis of Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles data. A total of 5,838 New Yorkers made the switch in August — the highest recorded number for a single month in history, the numbers show. Year to date, 41,885 New Yorkers have handed over their licenses after moving south, a torrid pace that’s pointing to a new annual...

    A strange thing happened. After lecturing the nation on the virtues of mass migration, the white liberal democrats on Martha’s Vineyard did not celebrate the arrival of the non-white immigrants they have been demanding for years. Fox News host Tucker Carlson noted in his monologue that Martha’s Vineyard famous nimby residents, including former President Barack Obama, did not welcome the people of color as one would expect.

    How many times have I said it? One of my favorite axioms is Liberals have ZERO long term memory.I've been tweeting Republican Governors for months- please send them to Malibu, Aspen and Martha's Vineyard. Ron DeSantis finally listened and good on him. Massachusetts is a sanctuary state. How Massachusetts Became a Sanctuary StateFlorida is not. The day of reckoning has arrived. Joe Biden has been dumping illegals all over the country without the approval of his victim states. He just dumps them, unaccompanied minors and all. Not one effing democrat liberal had a problem with that. Biden was literally engaged...

    Judge didn't nix the idea of signing with the Red Sox as a free agent, but that doesn't mean a whole lotYankees slugger and likely AL MVP Aaron Judge is having a season for the ages. He clubbed two more homers on Tuesday night to move him to 57 with 20 Yankees games left to play. He's on pace for 65 this season and, well, we know all about the context behind getting to 61 and beyond. Another aspect worth consideration here is Judge hits free agency after the season. He and the Yankees were unable to reach an extension,...

    The Yankees are unlikely to continue pursuing a trade for Andrew Benintendi, the Royals’ All-Star left fielder, because he is not vaccinated against COVID-19, The Post’s Jon Heyman reports. Benintendi, 28, is one of 10 Royals players not making the trip to Toronto for a four-game series against the Blue Jays that starts Thursday night. Those players are not allowed to enter Canada because of their vaccination status. The Yankees, who had a fully vaccinated roster when they went to Toronto in early May and mid-June, have one more trip to Canada remaining: a three-game series against the Blue Jays...
  • New York Yankees, Tampa Bay Rays Pause Game Coverage to Highlight Gun Violence Stats

    Breitbart ^ | 05/26/2022 | Jordan Dixon-Hamilton
    The New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays suspended their usual game coverage on Twitter to draw attention to gun violence within the United States. Typically, the two organizations’ Twitter accounts post live states about the game being played. Instead, they posted statistics about gun violence on Thursday. The move by the two Major League Baseball teams comes in the aftermath of the Uvalde school shooting, where an 18-year-old gunman killed 19 children and two teachers at a Texas elementary school.

    Tim Anderson accused Josh Donaldson of making a racist comment on Saturday that nearly ignited a benches-clearing brawl, but the Yankees third baseman said he believes the White Sox shortstop took his words the wrong way. After the Yankees’ 7-5 victory at the Stadium, Anderson said Donaldson used the phrase, “What’s up, Jackie?” multiple times to him during the game. Donaldson’s response was that he has jokingly called Anderson “Jackie” (as in Jackie Robinson) in the past because the infielder referred to himself in 2019 as “today’s Jackie Robinson.” “He just made a disrespectful comment. He was trying to call...

    Yankees star Aaron Judge refused to directly answer a question about his vaccine status Tuesday amid a requirement in New York City that every private sector employee be inoculated against the coronavirus. "I'm still focused on just getting to the first game of spring training," Judge said from the team's Florida training complex. "So I think we'll cross that bridge after the time comes. But right now, so many things could change. So I'm not really too worried about that right now."

    Yankees and Mets players are subject to New York City’s private employer vaccine mandate – meaning unvaccinated Yankees and Mets will not be able to play in home games – the mayor’s office confirmed to USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday. Yankees star Aaron Judge brushed off a vaccination question at spring training in Florida Tuesday. “I’m just so focused on getting to the first game of spring training so I think we’ll cross that bridge whenever the time comes,” Judge told reporters. “But right now, so many things could change so I’m not really too worried about that right now.”...
