BRONX, N.Y. — On this date in 1998, the New York Yankees were immersed in a slugfest with the Texas Rangers at Yankee Stadium. When all was said and done the Bronx Bombers ended up on top with an 8-6 victory.
Knotted at three in the fifth frame, Bernie Williams delivered the big blow, crushing a grand slam to right-center off Rick Helling. That was all the Yanks would need from there.
After Bernie Baseball circled the bases, the camera panned to actor Wayne Knight aka “Newman” from Seinfeld.
