Lance Berkman may have had a short Yankee career but he did have a memorable game in Pinstripes.
It was Game Two of the 2010 Division Series against Minnesota and it is a moment I called on Twitter. I jokingly said, “Time for Lance Berkman’s True Yankee moment,” and then BOOM.
Berkman played the majority of his career – 12 years – with the Houston Astros where he had batted .296/.410/.549/.959 with 326 home runs. He was traded to the Yankees in 2010 and only played in 37 games. He then joined the St. Louis Cardinals in 2011, won a World Series with them and finished his career with the Texas Rangers in 2013.
Enjoy your retirement, Lance!
