Quick hit: Summer 2014 will be filled with ceremonies

The Yankees announced a bunch of upcoming ceremonies this season and next.

Tino Martinez and Goose Gossage will be honored during Old-Timers’ Day weekend and will get plaques in Monument Park. Tino’s ceremony will be held on June 21, while Gossage’s will be the next day. Paul O’Neill will also have a ceremony and have a plaque unveiled in Monument Park on August 9 and former manager Joe Torre‘s No. 6 will be retired on August 23 and he will also get a plaque in Monument Park.

Bernie Williams will be honored in 2015.

A few things:

  • I’m not sure Tino Martinez deserves a plaque in Monument Park.
  • Could the Yankees just retire Bernie’s number already? It’s getting obnoxious now.
  • I think the Yankees should have made this version of Monument Park bigger because they’re going to run out of room soon.
  • Stacey is co-Editor-in-Chief of It's About The Money and is co-host of the It's About The Yankees, Stupid podcast. When she's not blogging about baseball, she's blogging about the New York Knicks and when she's not doing either of those things, she's tweeting about General Hospital and her cats.
