Bye bye baseball! Hello Newman!

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.

Yes, he ruined Jurassic Park but he couldn’t derail the 1998 season.
