On Saturday, June 20th, one of baseball’s greatest traditions is set to commence once again.
The 69th annual Old-Timer’s Day will take place at Yankee Stadium on this day, as the Yankees will honor former player and coach Willie Randolph with a plaque in Monument Park.
With the event a little over a week away, the Yankees organization announced the names of who will be attending the ceremonies. Including Randolph, over 50 former players or their widows will be taking part in the festivities.
Here’s the full list of the players who are expected to be a part of the Old-Timer’s Day festivities:
Dr. Bobby Brown
Ken Griffey Sr.
Arlene Howard (widow of Elston Howard)

Old-Timer’s Day always one of the best day during the Yankees’ season. With an impressive list of former players returning to the Bronx for this event, June 20th should be another special day in Yankees’ history.
