Former Yankees centerfielder and fan favorite, Bernie Williams, will be making an appearance in upstate New York this month. Having his # retired and a plaque in Monument Park earlier this summer, the 4-time World Series Champion and Emmy nominated guitarist will be in the flesh at Turning Stone Casino & Resort in Verona, NY on July 9th. From 2-4pm there will be a “meet & greet” autograph signing, with a free concert by #51 starting at 9pm. The events will be held in The Winter Garden main lobby area of the resort.
A classically-trained guitarist, Williams has released two albums. His 2009 album “Moving Forward” — which featured guest appearances by Bruce Springsteen and Jon Secada, among others — reached No. 2 on Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Albums chart and was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award for “Best Instrumental Album.”
Whether you’re a fan of Bernie with a bat in his hands or a guitar…this is a rare opportunity you won’t want to miss out on! BERN BABY BERN!
