The Yankees have announced the attendees for the 73rd Old Timers’ Day, which will take place at the Stadium on Sunday, June 23 before the game against the Houston Astros.
The guest list will be headlined by Mariano Rivera, who is an Old Timer for the first time. Rivera will likely be honored for his upcoming induction into the Hall of Fame. In January, he became the first player ever to be inducted unanimously.
Other first timers include INF/OF Jerry Hairston Jr., who was on the 2009 championship team; relief pitcher Jason Grimsley, who was on the ’99-’00 championship teams; and the widow of the late Mel Stottlemyre, Jean Stottlemyre.
