We’ll start our Tuesday with three announcements from the Yankees. This was posted late last night, but just in case you missed it…

Robinson Cano and Alex Rodriguez will greet fans at Babe Ruth Plaza, just outside Yankee Stadium’s Great Hall along 161st St., before today’s game from 3-3:30 p.m.

Manager Joe Girardi will join Elizabeth H. Berger, President of the Alliance for Downtown New York, to unveil a granite strip commemorating last fall’s ticker-tape parade for the 2009 world champion New York Yankees. They’ll be surrounded by a dozen members of the Downtown Little League Yankees.

The Downtown Alliance, the business improvement district serving Lower Manhattan south of Chambers Street, has embedded a strip for each of the 204 parades that have run along the famed Canyon of Heroes parade route on Lower Broadway. Downtown Alliance Chairman Robert R. Douglass will also attend the ceremony.

WHEN: Tuesday, June 15, 2010, 11 a.m.
WHERE: 233 Broadway (west side of the street, in front of the Woolworth Building)

Tickets for the JAY-Z and Eminem concert on September 13 at Yankee Stadium will go on sale on June 25 at 10:00 a.m. online at, via Ticketmaster phone at (800) 745-3000, via Ticketmaster TTY at (800) 943-4327 and at select area Ticketmaster outlets.

It will be the second of a home-and-home series of shows for New York City-native JAY-Z and Detroit-area-native Eminem, as the pair will also perform at Detroit’s Comerica Park on September 2.

While this event will serve as the Stadium’s first official concert, JAY-Z has previously performed at Yankee Stadium, singing his hit “Empire State of Mind” with Alicia Keys on October 29, 2009, prior to the Yankees’ 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 2 of the World Series.

Information regarding ticket pricing will be available at at a later date.
