I’m sure there will be another mention of this between now and the ceremony itself, but tonight the Yankees announced a few more details about Monday’s ceremony to unveil the George Steinbrenner monument in Monument Park. Here’s the announcement from the team.

The New York Yankees will hold a special ceremony to dedicate and unveil a monument in honor of George M. Steinbrenner III, in Yankee Stadium’s Monument Park on Monday, September 20, prior to the team’s game vs. the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Yankees are asking all fans to arrive early and be in their seats by 6:45 p.m. Please also note that Monument Park will be closed to fans prior to Monday’s game.

The ceremony is scheduled to begin at approximately 7:00 p.m. with a special introduction behind home plate, followed by the unveiling of Mr. Steinbrenner’s monument in Monument Park, located just beyond the centerfield wall.

Mr. Steinbrenner’s granddaughter Haley Swindal, who is currently performing in the musical Cabaret at the Surflight Theater in Beach Haven, N.J., will sing God Bless America during the seventh-inning stretch in tribute to her grandfather. Frank Sinatra, Jr., will sing the national anthem prior to the game, while the colors will be presented by the West Point Color Guard.

Mr. Steinbrenner’s wife, Joan, and all four of the couple’s children – Hal, Hank, Jennifer and Jessica – are scheduled to be in attendance.
