A Look Back

Yankees trivia time

That’s Luis Cessa on the cover of this post. He’s the only Yankee to wear no. 85. Gary Sanchez is the only Yankee to have worn 73. Al Aceves? 91. 69 only belonged to Alan Mills. And, of course, Lou Gehrig was the only Yankee to don 4. That’s your last freebie, though, because it’s Yankees trivia time.
