To celebrate the life of Freddy “Sez” Schuman, the Yankees will ask for a moment of silence before tonight’s ALCS Game 3. The Yankees will also have some of Schuman’s memorabilia on display inside Game Gate 4 prior to the game. Some of Schuman’s clothes and signs will be on display, along with his pan and spoon, which fans will be able to bang together.
The items will remain on display throughout the postseason, and they will eventually become part of the New York Yankees Museum in Yankee Stadium.
“Freddy ‘The Fan’ Schuman was an iconic Yankees fan who brought life, youthful exuberance and cheer to Yankee Stadium,” the team said in a released statement. “The energy and excitement that resonates throughout the Stadium during a Yankees game is made that way by our fans, and Freddy was one of the conductors that could be counted on to bring our orchestra of fans together. Freddy endeared himself to all those he came in contact with, and we send our deepest condolences to his family and his thousands of friends.”
