Yankees appear to double down on Aaron Judge fast track
Injured New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge could return to the big leagues before you know it.
Here’s what you need to know about the upcoming Old-Timer’s Day, via the Yankees:
The New York Yankees today announced the roster of former Yankees who will be on hand at the 73rd annual Old-Timers’ Day on Sunday, June 23, at Yankee Stadium — the 11th Old-Timers’ Day at the current Yankee Stadium.
Mariano Rivera, who will be inducted into Cooperstown this July as the first player unanimously elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, will be making his Old-Timers’ Day debut. The native of Panama amassed an all-time Major League-record 652 career saves. A lifetime Yankee (1995-2013), he was a 13-time All-Star and a member of five World Series championship-winning Yankees teams (1996, ’98-2000, ’09).
Along with Rivera, the Old-Timers’ Day roster will also feature fellow Hall of Famers Whitey Ford and Reggie Jackson, with current Yankees Manager Aaron Boone and Hitting Coach Marcus Thames. Former Yankees players and current YES Network broadcasters David Cone, John Flaherty and Paul O’Neill will also take part in the festivities.

Joining the Hall of Famers and former Yankees on the field will be the widows of five legendary Yankees—Helen Hunter, widow of Jim “Catfish” Hunter; Jill Martin, widow of Billy Martin; Diana Munson, widow of Thurman Munson; Kay Murcer, widow of Bobby Murcer; and Jean Stottlemyre, widow of Mel Stottlemyre.
Also making their Old Timers’ Day debut are Jerry Hairston Jr. — who was acquired by the Yankees at the 2009 trade deadline and played a role in bringing the 27th World Championship home to the Bronx — and Jason Grimsley — who appeared in 118 games as a member of the Yankees bullpen from 1999-2000.
