I Am Thankful For… (by Ed Botti)
I am thankful for so many Yankees memories. I could go on and on….
These all meant a lot to me:
Chris Chambliss’ 1976 ALCS winning Home Run
Mike Torrez catching the last out of the 1977 World Series
Bucky Dent’s October 2, 1978 home run in Fenway
Thurman Munson catching last out of 1978 World Series in Dodger Stadium
Paul O’Neill’s Game 5 1996 World Series running catch in Atlanta to end the game
Anytime Mariano Rivera threw a baseball
Tino Martinez and his Game 1 1998 World Series Grand Slam
Bernie Williams’ 1996 ALCS game walk-off homer
Graig Nettles and his 1978 World Series Game 3 defense
Don Mattingly hitting a home run in the 1995 ALDS
Jorge Posada’s 2003 ALCS Game 7 RBI double off Pedro Martinez
Aaron Boone’s walk-off homer to win the 2003 ALCS
Hideki Matsui’s 2009 Game 6 World Series – AMAZING!
