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.

Don’t I sound so old right now?
