May 27 – Pinstripe Birthdays’ All-Time Yankee Team

Not one member of the Yankee family celebrates a birthday on today’s date. I even searched the current rosters of New York’s Minor League affiliates and did not find one player, manager or coach in the entire organization who was born on May 27th. In fact the only person I discovered with any ties whatsoever to the Yankee franchise who was born on today’s date is Debbie Clemens, the wife of former Yankee Cy Young Award winner and accused HGH user, Roger Clemens. Needless to say, Mrs. Clemens has probably not had too many happy days of any kind in her life for a while so we wish her peace and better days ahead on her birthday.

Since we have no Yankee birthdays to celebrate, how about I present my all-time greatest Yankee team, instead? See if you agree with the 25 players I put on my roster:
Starters
1B – Lou Gehrig
2B – Tony Lazzeri
3B – Alex Rodriguez
SS – Derek Jeter
C – Yogi Berra
OF – Babe Ruth
OF – Joe DiMaggio
OF – Mickey Mantle
