Yankees to honor Boss with pregame ceremony Saturday

Posted by: Sam Borden - Posted in Misc on Feb 25, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Here’s the release from the Yankees (FYI – the ceremony WILL be carried on YES):

The New York Yankees will hold a special ceremony to honor George M. Steinbrenner III, at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Fla., prior to the team’s spring training opener vs. the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday, February 26.

The Yankees are asking all fans to arrive early and be in their seats by 12:40 p.m. with the ceremony scheduled to start at 12:45 p.m.

The George M. Steinbrenner High School marching band will begin the ceremony with a special performance followed by a video tribute in honor of the former Yankees owner who passed away last July.

The text on the plaque on the statue of Mr. Steinbrenner located in front of the stadium named in his honor will be recited. Then, prior to a moment of silence, the Steinbrenner family will lay a rose at home plate in honor of Mr. Steinbrenner.

Mr. Steinbrenner’s granddaughter Haley Swindal, will sing the national anthem, while service men and women from MacDill Air Force Base unfurl a giant American Flag in the outfield. The colors will be presented by the Joint Services Color Guard from MacDill Air Force Base. There will also be a fly over by two F18 Hornets from Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach, Va.

* That’s an AP shot of the Steinbrenner statue that stands just outside the Yankees complex in Tampa.

    If they keep putting up these statues to George, pretty soon the stadiums are going to look like Stonehenge.

  2. sevrox February 25th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    …and you shall love the George thy God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your Jeter better than thyself…?

    And pass the beer nuts.

    It captures his likeness i suppose. But i really would like see the Napoleonic pose GMS … he indeed came, saw and conquer… irascible at times, but with indomitable will and insatiable drive to win.

    What happened to Lincecum ?

    His ERA is 16.20 after today’s game.

    Maybe SF should trade him to the Yanks before his value drops any further.

    :)

  6. blake February 25th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    MTU,

    He’s too short….just a matter of time before he busted

    I’m sure he’ll get straightened out. It’s a Zen thing.

    Nothing to freak out about.

    What are the odds you’ll ever see TL with a 16.20 ERA again ?

    Maybe when he’s in a rocker. More likely a comet hits the Earth.

    It is freezing cold here in NY and a few snow flakes too…all for little ole me.

    “Rodriguez is one of some 45,000 New Yorkers who have scored the tax break”

    I’m outraged about Alex getting a tax break. The other 44,999, I’m fine with. But Alex :mad:

  38. ron February 25th, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    •If the season started today, apparently the coaching staff would want Andrew Brackman on the club. Wouldn’t that be something? Wanting him on the club and having him on the club are two different things, though. Of course, the Brackmonster will miss a few days with a groin injury. (Peter Gammons)
    •Frankie Cervelli was getting catching tips from 85-year-old Yogi Berra. Yogi even tried to get into a crouch. Good for him. (Sam Borden)
    •Jordan Parraz managed to clear the scoreboard in left-center with a homer during batting practice. That’s no cheapie at GMS Field. (Ben Shpigel)
    •Bartolo Colon, Joba Chamberlain, David Robertson, David Phelps, Hector Noesi, and Eric Wordekemper are scheduled to pitch in tomorrow’s Grapefruit League opener. Joe Girardi said all the regulars will play and get two at-bats, though Cervelli is starting behind the plate. Jesus Montero will catch on Sunday, and Russell Martin will DH early next week before catching on Thursday or Friday. (Shpigel, Jack Curry & Jennings)
    •The opposing starters this weekend: Cole Hamels (Saturday), Joe Blanton (Sunday), and Rick Porcello (Monday). Colon, Ivan Nova, and CC Sabathia are starting those games for the Yanks. (Pete Caldera)
    •Turns out there’s no team-building exercise planned for this spring. Alas. (Jennings)

    Good stuff from rab.

  39. Deal With It February 25th, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    Lincecum will never come to the Yankees. Two reasons, he doesn’t like the grooming rules and Chris Russo (Mad Dog Russo) would commit suicide.

  40. ron February 25th, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    Montero catching sunday.

    Man it would be nice if it’s on tv & he hits a bomb

  41. pat February 25th, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    MTU

    Tax abatements are nothing new in NYC but they became an issue this week because Alex is looking at buying a condo? Using his name in a self serving way to promote a casue is lame.

  42. ron February 25th, 2011 at 9:22 pm

    I have a feeling that if brackman stays healthy he is going to force himself into the 5 man rotation very early in the year.

  43. MTU February 25th, 2011 at 9:23 pm

    SAS-

    NYC has to support all that “infrastructure”.

    Out here we have very little to worry about.

    Except for droughts and the occasional unwelcome guest in your house.

    My little town doesn’t even have 10,000 people. Doesn’t take much in taxes to support that population compared with over 10 mil.

    As I said above I have no problemo with it.

    When it comes to Alex there is a lot of jealousy at work.

    His name should be changed to L-Rod, for lightning.

  46. SAS February 25th, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    There are 10,000 in my little town here and the taxes, aided by a large Corporate group, are astronomical. School taxes alone are more than 10K and that is not including Town and County tax.

    In AZ it is a fraction of the money.

    I am a frequent listener of Mad Dog, he doesn’t particularly care for the Yankees and he has said several times that if the Yankees lure him (Timmy) away when he is eligible for Free Agency that he will retire from radio permanently.

    Thanks for the welcome, Doreen. For Deal With It, deal with it.”

    How very odd that a brand new poster would post something sexually offensive and when asked by someone on the forum to cool it, would respond with “Deal With It”.

    Hmmm.

    Deal With It, thank you for asking that poster to keep that kind of stuff off the forum. I for one don’t appreciate that kind of smutty stuff. I would think that many others, male and female here, find it equally offensive.

  59. SAS February 25th, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    Thanks so much. Don’t count on the Yankeette. In my kids generation there are no girls from the 3 brothers. Their kids have produced one of four. My husband’s sister has a daughter but that doesn’t count as far as the sex of a child.

    For all of you who recommended The King’s Speech – THANK YOU!!!!! I just saw it. Twice.

    Truth stranger than fiction. (And great irony IMO). There was something wrong with the sound system and so much of the dialogue in The King’s Speech was garbled. You could basically understand it but it was an unpleasant way to listen to a movie. Well a few of us went out to the lobby to see if they could fix it and what we were told by the manager was that there was some technical problem with the sound in that cinema and that we were going to be issues free passes and/or refunds. And that we were welcome to watch the rest of the movie.

    Well when it was over I went for a refund. They had already given me a free pass so I wasn’t going to take another one. So they moved the movie to one of the other cinemas and I used my free pass to watch it again! I only had to wait about 20 minutes.

    When I got out, it was snowing up a storm! I had a message on my cellphone that my sister had made a gravy with meatballs, sausage, and pork – she makes the best gravy and meatballs I have ever had – and that she left a container of it for me on her porch. So I went and picked it up and will probably make a little pasta and put that on it.

    Things went so beautifully all around that all I could think was that today was one of those days when you say to yourself “I must be living right.” :)

    The movie was SPECTACULAR. I am so happy I saw it. Twice, ha ha. Thanks to all who recommended it.

    That’s like my family. My older brother was the first boy and first grandchild, little did they know he would be followed by 9 girls and finally the last born in the family turned out to be a boy.

    Trisha,

    You need to boil pasta…:smile:

  91. MTU February 25th, 2011 at 10:04 pm

    Bronx-

    In Brazil I saw a guy walking his pet Armadillo down the beach on a leash.

    It ain’t no Buffalo but it was a little different.

    :)

  92. Bronx Jeers February 25th, 2011 at 10:05 pm

    It’s an interesting show about people who keep dangerous animals as pets. It’s called “Fatal Attractions”

    A shovel comes in pretty handy on this board, too.

  94. trisha - true pinstriped blue February 25th, 2011 at 10:05 pm

    SAS, that is just the best news. Again, I think babies in the family make all right with the world. :)

  95. trisha - true pinstriped blue February 25th, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    But SAS, you can make water come to a boil in the microwave!

  96. MTU February 25th, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    GB-

    At times, yes.

  97. trisha - true pinstriped blue February 25th, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    Looks like I’m not the only lazy sucker in the world!

    Bronx, I watched it a week or so ago. They had this idiot carrying this gator around the house like a baby. It’s head and mouth up by the face. I’m have done a few stupid things, but, even I draw the line.

  99. Bronx Jeers February 25th, 2011 at 10:09 pm

    MTU,

    I think in Ecuador that armadillo would end up in somebody’s soup.

    They eat guinea pigs there. It’s sort of a delicacy. It actually looks quite tasty roasted on a spit.

  100. Fran the original February 25th, 2011 at 10:10 pm

    SAS,maybe you’ll have beginners luck. And if you don’t like the team you draft, there are trades and waiver players.

  101. MTU February 25th, 2011 at 10:12 pm

    Jeers-

    So that’s why they call them Guinea pigs.

    ;)

  102. Bronx Jeers February 25th, 2011 at 10:12 pm

    GB7,

    I didn’t see that one but several years back there was a guy in Harlem I think who had a gator and a tiger in his apt.

  103. trisha - true pinstriped blue February 25th, 2011 at 10:13 pm

    Draft day is my least favorite part of the season. I find it very tension-filled, and you never get the players you want. But as Fran said, you can make trades and add and drop players all season long.

  104. SAS February 25th, 2011 at 10:13 pm

    Some of this gross things are considered delicacies where they live, but I love frogs legs and escargot.

  105. trisha - true pinstriped blue February 25th, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    Time to microwave some pasta. I’ll be interested to see how it works out. Probably lousy and will make a mess, that moral of the story being I should just do it the way most people do it. On top of the stove!

  106. Tom in N.J. February 25th, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    There was this lady on my block growing up who had a serval cat.

    Damn thing was the size of a dog.

  107. SAS February 25th, 2011 at 10:15 pm

    Trisha,

    I have never heard of most of these players. They could be from Mars.

  108. tyanksfan36 February 25th, 2011 at 10:17 pm

    Fran

    No I didn’t get a seat. I stood for like 2 more innings and then left, I was too tired to stand around there and wait for a seat.

    GB

    Girls are just too much, having worked where I have for 3 years and seen some of the girls go through their first few years, I couldn’t imagine a lifetime with them. I hope I have boys.

  109. GreenBeret7 February 25th, 2011 at 10:22 pm

    SAS, you’d better hope we can bury your froglegs comment. Erica and Erin will be afraid that you’ll go after Kermit next.

  110. GreenBeret7 February 25th, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    TY, boys are best….until they become big boys. Then, you have to worry about fathers with girls and shotguns.

  111. Fran the original February 25th, 2011 at 10:25 pm

    Tyanks, did you have to pay for the tickets?

  112. Deal With It February 25th, 2011 at 10:31 pm

    SAS

    Remove all the tension and just set your preference to ‘auto draft’, the computer does all the work based on the league rankings. Then its like a big surprise at the end who you get.

  113. tyanksfan36 February 25th, 2011 at 10:31 pm

    Fran

    No, I didn’t have to pay for the tickets, all USF sports are free to students so it wasn’t a big deal to leave so early. It was also a free weekend for everyone since it was the grand opening so ill have to go back another time when its not as busy.

  114. SAS February 25th, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    Deal with It,

    I am going for it the same way everyone else is. If they can do it, I can try too; otherwise why bother.

    Thanks for your thoughts though.

  115. GreenBeret7 February 25th, 2011 at 10:34 pm

    OUCH!!! TFF

  117. Fran the original February 25th, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    Tyanks, glad you didn’t have to pay to stand :)

  118. SAS February 25th, 2011 at 10:36 pm

    GB,

    I wouldn’t go near Kermit or the other folks who live on Sesame Streets. What would my grandson do?

  119. tyanksfan36 February 25th, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    Deal with it

    That’s what I’m planning on doing with my team, I tend to overthink things so I’m just going to let the computer do it for me.

  120. GreenBeret7 February 25th, 2011 at 10:42 pm

    ———————————————————————————————————————-

    SAS, evebtually, your grandson would get over the trauma. Can’t say the same about Erica and Erin. They’re really sensitive. Even worse, they’re like mother tigers when their babies are threatened.

  121. SAS February 25th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    GB,

    I feel the same way for Erica and Erin too. I know how they feel. I hope they would feel the same way about something that important in my life.

  122. trisha - true pinstriped blue February 25th, 2011 at 11:00 pm

    No lie. Perfect al dente pasta in the microwave.

    :)

    Time to eat it! I’ll share my secret later if anyone wants it.

    :)

  123. Deal With It February 25th, 2011 at 11:22 pm

    SAS February 25th, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    Sure thing. Just saying it makes the draft part only, simpler. Then everyone has to manage his or her team for the season.

    tyanksfan36 February 25th, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    I think so too and if you really like a couple of players you can prioritize them to the top of the list in the auto draft which makes it fun when you get ‘your guys’ early.
