Quick hit: Biggest Moment of the season?

I’d say this is definitely one of the biggest moments of the 2015 season. Wouldn’t you?

The screenshot of the bench’s reaction to home run alone is amazing. The video is about 1000x better.

What a moment for Slade Heathcott and the Yankees.

Quick hit: The Yankees on stage at Radio City

Earlier today, the Yankees Twitter account posted a video of Liza Minelli singing “New York, New York” with some members of the New York Yankees.

It’s from a show was called, “Night of 100 Stars” which aired on ABC on March 8, 1982. It was taped a few weeks prior and featured people from Minelli and Lionel Richie to Princess Grace (Kelly) and Howard Cosell.

I am pretty sure I watched this program as a kid because my mom was really into this sort of thing but I barely remember it.

Anyway, I thought it was pretty hilarious to watch guys like Bob Watson, Ron GuidryWillie Randolph and Jerry Mumphrey perform on stage with Liza Minelli.

You can treat this as an open thread until the Game Thread goes up at 9:30. Enjoy!

Flashback: May 14, 1996

Dwight Gooden threw a no-hitter 19 years ago today.

I attended that game with my dad and my brother and it was amazing to see something like that in person. It felt like watching a movie and almost didn’t seem real.

Leave your memories of the game in the comments, if you’re actually old enough to remember that night (ha ha).

Video: Masahiro Tanaka watches the Housewives shows?

Some people seem to be bothered by this but I think MLB is smart using videos like these to market baseball because we’re in an age where people who film YouTube videos are getting book deals, TV show pilots and movie roles. The younger set are drawn to this sort of thing and I think it can help bring a younger audience, who may have gone away for one reason or another, back to baseball.

Don’t I sound so old right now?

Enjoy the video.
