As the Yankees and their fans enjoy a rare off-day on the calendar, let's spend some time tonight remembering and paying tribute to a great former Yankee - Graig Nettles.
When I was growing up, Nettles was my favorite player. His defense and power were amazing to watch. He was a great player and leader on the 1977 and 1978 World Champion teams.
Today also just happens to be Nettles' 74th birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY #9!
