Getting swept in the American League Championship Series by the Houston Astros was many Yankees fans worst nightmare. The magical season that started so well, always had that hint of doubt based on their midseason match-ups, especially the two game sweep by the Astros following the All Star break. Now, how do the New York Yankees move forward? Pinstripes' owner Hal Steinbrenner has a lot to think about.
Tuesday night, when Corey Youmans sat down in his left field seats at Globe Life Field in Section 31, Row 1, Seat 3, he may have dreamed that he could snag a valuable piece of history. Well, dreams come true and the baseball that Youmans caught in his glove is already worth $2 million. That number may get higher.
Every home run hit by Aaron Judge going forward is going to be a valuable historic baseball worth a lot of money. The 61st home run ball that ties the Roger Maris record will be huge, the 62nd that breaks the record will be huge, and then every homer thereafter will potentially have high value. Make sure you're ready by following these 7 points of advice.
Monday night, New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso had just hit his 18th home run of the season. He was rounding 3rd base and as he faced his teammates in the dugout he began to do an imitation of a Pete Towsend guitar windmill. Alonso was indicating to his fellow Amazin's that they were rockin'. Pete Alonso likes to have fun and he's not afraid to show it. Following his second Home Run Derby Championship, the young first baseman is blossoming into a star. But is Pete Alonso one of the Top 5 Sports Stars in the Empire State, I don't think so. Let's take a look.
The New York Yankees are one of the most talented teams in all of baseball. There's an argument to be made that the majority of the roster should be All-Stars and a handful of Yankees have MVP caliber talent BUT they don't look that way at the plate. It's early and there's plenty of baseball left to get things right but when you look at the last five or six years of Yankees teams there's a glaring reason they can't beat good teams in the postseason. The Yankees can not hit with Runners In Scoring Position!
