Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Sep 15, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Yankees announced today that they’re holding a pregame ceremony in honor of Roger Maris hitting his 61st home run in 1961. Here are the details.

The New York Yankees will hold a special pregame ceremony on Friday, September 23, to honor the 50th anniversary of Roger Maris setting a then-Major League record with 61 home runs in 1961.

The Yankees ask that fans take their seats by 6:20 p.m. with ceremonies slated to begin at 6:30 p.m., prior to the Yankees-Red Sox game scheduled to begin at 7:05 p.m.

Joining the Yankees for the day’s celebration will be the families of Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle, as well as former teammates.

The group will be introduced as part of an on-field ceremony emceed by actor Billy Crystal. In addition, Roger Maris’ bat as well as the 61st home run ball – on loan from the Baseball Hall of Fame – will on the field during the ceremony. Following a video tribute, the Yankees Foundation will present a donation to the Roger Maris Cancer Center in Fargo, N.D.

Cheryl Howard, daughter of Yankees All-Star catcher Elston Howard who was a teammate of Maris’ from 1960-66, will sing the national anthem.

    Not all the Boston media are biased. For example, Alex Speier of WEEI said that the Red Sox have been a relatively healthy club for much of the year, and so it would be unseemly for them to complain, particularly given that nearly every team is dealing with its share of aches and pains, and worse, with the 162-game season reduced to its final weeks.”

  2. Barry September 15th, 2011 at 10:03 pm

    Great idea.

    Harold loves Teix as well. He talks about his defense many times. He even picked Teix as his goalie when they were doing “who would you pick for a hockey team” segment. He was the only one who didn’t pick a catcher. Harold is my favorite, because he looks like he’s having fun. He cracks me up :D

    As much as Mitch LOVES the sox, he has a man crush on cano.

  4. kd September 15th, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    have the sox just given up?

  5. LockDown September 15th, 2011 at 10:10 pm

    Things look grim when the announcers at the sox game are talking about their hotels :lol:

    Probability of Rays making the playoffs still stands at 3.9%. :(

    Clinching the division isn’t enough to rest on laurels. There’s also the overall HFA. The Tigers are now closer to us than the Red Sox, have the tiebreakers against us and a soft schedule to the finish. Facing Verlander in the ALCS would be tough enough. Facing him in Comerica is an exremely unattractive prospect.

    —————-

    Detroit has a pretty easy finishing schedule too – Oakland, Royals, Orioles, and Indians.
    We play the Jays, Rays, Sox, Rays.

    Thankfully we have a 4 game lead. But we can’t just coast home, we have win these series and play well to get the division and HFA wrapped up.

  8. Don Vito A. Bellamo September 15th, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    the Nail in the BoSux coffin will be Beckett getting his @$$ handed to him tomorrow night and/or him re-aggravating his ankle. Stick a fork the those iceholes, because they are DONE !

    In reality, Roger Maris should still hold the single season HR record. In my mind he does.

  13. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 15th, 2011 at 10:15 pm

    These Sux sure look scary! What was I thinking when I said they wouldn’t amount to dog doo doo this season?!

  14. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 15th, 2011 at 10:15 pm

    “In reality, Roger Maris should still hold the single season HR record. In my mind he does.”

    As does he in mine, and I have to believe those of a lot of other people.

  15. Bret The Hitman September 15th, 2011 at 10:16 pm

    Probability of the Red Sox going one-and-done 100% :(

  16. blake September 15th, 2011 at 10:16 pm

    Big game for both Boston and the Rays tomorrow…..Beckett’s health and effectiveness is vital to the Sox WS chances….we’ll see how he looks. If Tampa can win tomorrow then 3 of 4 starts to look pretty within reach and a sweep is possible.

  17. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 15th, 2011 at 10:17 pm

    Bret – :D

  18. blake September 15th, 2011 at 10:17 pm

    Many baseball fans still consider Maris and Aaron to hold the HR records.

  19. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 15th, 2011 at 10:18 pm

    But Blake, Beckett is not enough, and even if he is okay, that’s all they can count on as a potential sure bet.

    Love when Beantown throws in the towel.

    Too lazy to look- who started for the Sox tonight?

  22. luis September 15th, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    trisha,

    they have Lestat as well….

  23. Red Robin September 15th, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Josh “The Scum” Buckett turns in another brilliant performance tomorrow. After all, he has been God-like all season.

    I am still hoping for the season-ending injury to him though.

  24. LockDown September 15th, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    Welland started

  25. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 15th, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    I guess I actually don’t consider any of their remaining game anything but something to guffaw about.

    I don’t particularly care who makes the postseason and who doesn’t. I believe the Yankees will defeat everyone. But I’d love to see the Sux not make it just because I DESPISE them!
    :evil:

    We play the Twins on Monday – forgot about that. Then the Rays.

  29. blake September 15th, 2011 at 10:22 pm

    Lester + a healthy Beckett makes them a lot more dangerous in a playoff series…..he’s their X factor IMO and has been all year

  30. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 15th, 2011 at 10:22 pm

    “trisha,

    they have Lestat as well….”

    Damn, Luis, how did I forget Lestat!

    Crap, they actually might have a chance.

    :lol:

  31. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 15th, 2011 at 10:23 pm

    “Lester + a healthy Beckett makes them a lot more dangerous in a playoff series…..he’s their X factor IMO and has been all year”

    Seriously, I’m not worried. I wasn’t worried when they had a stable of healthy horses. I’m sure not worried now.

  32. luis September 15th, 2011 at 10:23 pm

    If you asked me…..i would not play Arod in toronto, that turf is hard and not good for the body

  33. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 15th, 2011 at 10:26 pm

    WEEI is going to be my best fried tomorrow though I guarantee you that they’ll be yammering about how if Beckett gets the job done they’re still in it. They are as myopic (desperate) as can be believed.

  34. Asd September 15th, 2011 at 10:27 pm

    Everybody enjoying the red sox game? I am.

  35. luis September 15th, 2011 at 10:27 pm

    Blake,

    True, beckett is their X factor, but in any case they’ll have to fight their way to the PS and have been over using their BP as of late

  38. trisha - true pinstriped blue September 15th, 2011 at 10:29 pm

    Can you imagine riding duckboats in a parade? That’s how totally goofy that organization is.

    Also remember this. No matter how Beckett comes back, the entire team is on fumes. They have been reeling like crazy. I think the stat is 3-10 in their last 13 games. Teams that limp into the postseason don’t often find themselves on the winning end of things.

    How many times do you hear that it’s the hot hand that wins the world series? Does anyone seriously see the Sux having the ability to morph into the team with the hot hand?

    I didn’t think so. Well okay, two posters do – both trolls of sorts. But no Yankee fan would, I don’t believe.

    Yes, but one bad slide……

    Trisha,

    I do think that the team to beat is the Phillies

  41. LGY September 15th, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    I really wouldn’t be discouraged if the Tigers ended up having the best record in the AL. If the Yankees ended up playing them in the ALCS I actually like having those 3 games at home in the middle.

    I want the Yankees to win the division, get homefield for the ALDS, and face off against Texas.

    I do think the Yankees will end the season with the best record in the AL but if the Tigers continue to surge and pull it out that’s cool too.

    trisha, they have such serious pitching woes, it’s bound to affect their strength, the lineup, adversely, guys trying to do to much, etc. they know the pitching isn’t there, kind of like the boat we were in in 2006…

  45. West Coast Yankee Fan September 15th, 2011 at 10:34 pm

    By the way Trisha, the Ghost you are applauding is AldoTheApache, he who ridicules dead parents who died of cancer. I seem to recall you had a loss in your family, I am surprised you would support such a person.

    Why do you lie?

  78. GreenBeret7 September 15th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

    Back to baseball. It’s really hard to believe that 61 homers happened 50 years ago. It wasn’t just the home run race that year, but, the Pennant Race between NYYs and detroit. It was neck and neck until the first week in september when Detroit came to town and were blown out of town. NY had a 2.5 game lead and squeaked out a 1-0 win in the 9th inning, then Maris bombed a couple of shots off of yankee Killer, Frank Lary. The 3rd game, NY trailed 5-4 in the 9th inning and Mantle hit his 2nd homer of the day, off of Jim Bunning and gerry Staley. Skowren hit a 3 run walk-off in the 9th.

    Mantle should have been sitting because of a forearm pull so bad that his arm was black and blue. He could swing the bat as long as he didn’t miss the ball. He used Bob Cerv’s 36 inch, 36 ounce bat and crushed two pitches into right field. The first one off of Bunning into the center field bleacher just to the right of the monuments. That finished Detroit’s title hopes.

    Listen JAP. Get this clearly through your thick head. I have consistently sympathized and empathized with anyone here who has had a personal loss here. When Trisha told us about her tragedy I sent sincerest condolences and loudly denounced that idiot.

    Sorry, just looked it up and it was Ellie Howard that hit the walk-off 3 run bomb to score Berra and Skowren. Ellie howard has never gotten enough credit for his defensive skills and especially that big bat.

    In point of fact, I’ve been here every day, reading and enjoying the excellent baseball banter of every one here, while you interject intermittently with your psychosis.

    I don’t have to post in order to enjoy the good baseball dialogue by all (except you).

    And flee the swarming wisdom of the streets.

    Just wanted to chime in and say that I totally agree with Chad on his Post Season roster thoughts. Those are the same 25 guys that I would put on the roster for the ALDS.

    My only concern is if you can really trust AJ out of the pen. He doesn’t throw enough strikes to really be trusted in that spot. However, maybe he comes in if a starter gets chased and just shuts things down one game. Allowing the offense to come back and win it.

    Can’t predict baseball, right.

    Sorry, just looked it up and it was Ellie Howard that hit the walk-off 3 run bomb to score Berra and Skowren. Ellie howard has never gotten enough credit for his defensive skills and especially that big bat.

    ———————

    GB7,

    I will never forget one game I watched, where opposing batters asked the home plate ump to check the ball multiple times (it was allowed at the time) for scuffs or foreign substances while Whitey Ford was pitching and Ellie was catching.

    Howard finally decided he’d had enough and decided to personally show the ball to the opposing batter himself. The ump had to step between them to keep Howard from shoving the ball down his pie hole.

    Classic moment.

    And I apologize to everyone for even having had to be bothered with that tonight. It’s the last thing I would have wanted.

    Ellie Howard was really a special player. Hard to say what his numbers might have been if he had been allowed to progress up the system normally. A decent left fielder, but, until George weiss was forced to promote him, he was stuck in the minors. Weiss said that he’d never promote a black player and NY had some good ones, including Vic Power. Weiss refused to sign Ernie Banks, Henry Aaron and Willie Mays, even though Tom Greenwade begged him to. Greenwade is the one that scouted Ellie Howard. Was 26 when he joined the Yanks.

    Tough old player. I remember him getting hit in the head by a bat…before they wore batting helmets. One of the White Sox hitters swung and missed the ball, brought the bat around and opened up a gash just above his ear. Got some tape, put on his mask and went back to catching the game. Lord, could he hit, though. tremendous power to right center.

    The “Broken Bat Heard Round The World” tonight at Fenway. I mean seriously how pathetic is it for all these loser Sux fans to blame this loss on a broken bat. Baseball Tonight morons (minus Boone) are just crying about it. “I have never seen a bat break like that before” they are saying. I mean you can’t make this crap up. Too funny and embarrassing for those whining about a stupid broken bat.

    Elimination # in the AL East is 10 for Boston and 7 for the Rays (Jays and O’s have been eliminated in the division).

    WC standings:

    Team GB

    Red Sox -
    Rays 3
    Angels 4
    Blue Jays 11
    White Sox 13
    Indians 13

    How pathetic is the Central? Only slightly better than the West. With the Sox, Yankees, and Rays beating up on each other the next two weeks, the Angels could sneak in there to get the wild card.

    Real pathetic. The Tigers have gotten super fat from playing those 4 other loser teams 18 times a piece. Against the rest of all baseball the Tigers are only playing .500.

    Tigers are a good team don’t get me wrong and I would rather face the Rangers then the Tigers in the ALDS, but playing in the Central sure has been a luxury for them all year.

  128. m September 16th, 2011 at 12:37 am

    Tigers are losing right now. If that holds, they’ll be 5 back of the Yankees in the loss column. I never thought they would catch the Yankees for what will hopefully be our HFA. But the Tigers probably wouldn’t mind missing the Yankees in the ALDS as a consolation prize.

    Good morning Yankee fans stateside. When you you wake up this morning it might help to start the day by reading a comment from Extra Bases Bosox blog:

    OilCanLloyd wrote:

    “Here’s my problem with this team. Every team suffers injuries. The stupid Yankees lost Pettitte to retirement, lost Hughes to some phantom shoulder injury for the majority of this season, they lost Colon for a couple of weeks when he was pitching like a #2 starter and AJ Burnett has been Lackey-like. They’ve also lost Arod to injury, Jeter for several weeks, Soriano was out for 1/2 the season, Joba out for the season w/TJ, Feliciano & Marte didn’t even break camp with them. When they lost Martin & Cervelli at the same time to injury they still figured it out and won their games. That team has had as many injuries as our team and they make no excuses. Their media doesn’t cover for them. Hughes was supposed to be their #2 starter and he fell apart, so what do they do? They bring up a kid in Nova who is challenging for ROY. I’m tired of the excuses in regards to injuries here to make the fans feel like these guys are trying. They’re not. They expected to win this season on paper and thought the rest of the league was going to roll over and play dead for them. The only team they get up to play against is the Yankees. Other than that, they suck. Plain and simple.”

    So, whenever the Yanks go thru a bad spell, remember that things aren’t exactly rosy up in Chowder Town either. And the Yanks, as this RED SOX FAN! points out so well, have weathered their problems pretty well. It’s wise to always keep things in perspective!

  132. Gary September 16th, 2011 at 7:13 am

    Shades of 1978, could this be the Boston Massacre #2.

    Said the other day the next 6 games were key, so far they are 1-1. If they can prevail against Toronto and Minn they can really do some serious damage to division battle. CC tonight lets get the win.

    __________________________________________________________________________

    Well they did lose. As far as if they care about who they play probably not with the pitching they have. Verlander continues to amaze me year after year, he throws so hard but he still has 230+ innings and 230+ K’s. He’ll be out there for 2 games in round 1 if it goes that far. Yanks did get by him twice early in the year, but as of late he has been unbeatable as his ERA has just stayed at that 2.4 mark. In order to beat him you need great pitching and no mistakes in the field, taking advantage of the few opportunites he gives you. The free swingers really are dead meat against this guy, he doesn’t make many mistakes.

  134. Villa Nova-Ya September 16th, 2011 at 7:29 am

    Gary -

    Verlander did have one bad game recently, that I think he still won because the Tigers scored a lot of runs off him. Verlander’s tough, though, no doubt. Fister is the one pitcher that gives them something else, though. Without Fister coming on, the Tigers were in the same situation as the Yankees, Verlander/Sabathia and then everyone else.

    What I think though is the Yankees have done well against Verlander in the past and can draw on that.

    Also, though this seems contradictory to what I just said, you have to look at the post season as a new season and go from there.

    Hey, the Phillies didn’t even get to the World Series last season, so you truly do not ever know for sure how things are going to work out.

    Arizona Diamondbacks, anyone, with Ian Kennedy leading the way? ;)

  135. Villa Nova-Ya September 16th, 2011 at 7:30 am

    I meant the Tigers scored a lot of runs FOR him, not off him. But that would be interesting – to see how the Tigers themselves would fare off their own pitcher. LOL

  136. blake September 16th, 2011 at 7:35 am

    I still think the odds are in Boston’s favor to make the postseason…..Tampa still has 7 games left against the Yanks and Boston has a more favorable schedule after this series……

    However…..if they do totally collapse….how.much of the blame has to be attributed to the boy wonder Theo?…..he put this team together. He signed John Lackey and Carl Crawford, and Dice K, and Jenks, and all these guys that are continually hurt. Aside from the Gonzalez deal (which any moron could have made as he was given to them on a silver platter)……what has Theo done in the last 2-3 years? Cashman has owned him the last 2 winters…….

    Now Boston has developed a good core of a team with their farm (Pedroia, Youk, Ellsbury, Lester, Buchholtz etc…..) but its tough to know how much Theo had to.do with that……..as far as the routine GM stuff…..trades and FA aquistions I would say Theo has done a pretty poor job of late. JmO

    Yanks need to take care of business this weekend……2 of 3 likely puts some nails in the division coffin

  137. BIG AL September 16th, 2011 at 7:58 am

    Wow, I thought this was a baseball blog, but, after reading all the drama from last night, I must be mistaken.

    Morning Tom. Not being a numbers guy, I’m guessing all the Yanks need to do is split with the Rays, and maybe take 1 or 2 from Boston. I’m glad to see the difference in the approach this season over last.

  140. upstate kate September 16th, 2011 at 8:06 am

  141. blake September 16th, 2011 at 8:07 am

    Morning AL and Tom,

    The Yanks have a 5 game lead in the LC now…..which is pretty substantial…..thy just need to.avoid a stretch like Boston has had most likely to.hang on to the division……they win 2 of 3 this weekend and beat the Twins Monday and they’ll likely be sitting very pretty when the series with TB starts.

  142. tomingeorgia September 16th, 2011 at 8:07 am

    Let’s make it easier on ourselves by sweeping the Jays.

  143. BIG AL September 16th, 2011 at 8:09 am

    I happy to see the Yankees honoring Maris. At times I thought he was the forgotten man when people talked about HR records. I agree with some that posted last night, in my mind Roger is still the HR king, the others records are so tainted, they don’t deserve to be given any thought.

    I met Ellie Howard when he was living in Teaneck, NJ shopping at the local Food Town. I never thought I’d meet a Yankees ball player there, but found him to be such a regular good guy.

  144. BIG AL September 16th, 2011 at 8:13 am

    Good morning Blake & Kate.

    Kate, I seldom watch any RS game, other than the end of one of their games, to relish in their defeat. A new PS is almost upon us, and still quite a few question marks. I’m hoping A-Rod has enough time before now and the PS to get his swing back, because I don’t believe we can go deep without his bat, JMO.

  145. upstate kate September 16th, 2011 at 8:17 am

    There was no Yankee game and no football Big Al, and I have Hellickson on my FBB team.

  146. tomingeorgia September 16th, 2011 at 8:17 am

    Hi, Kate,
    Quite a performance on this blog last night. Anyway, there’s finally a game I can stay up for tonight. Let’s go, Yanks, put this race to an end.

  147. blake September 16th, 2011 at 8:18 am

    Hopefully Alex can get back in there tonight and can play a lot in the next 2 weeks to get himself on track.

    No disagreement from me, however the money guys usually showup and continue their seasonable performances in the playoffs.

    I think this is the year of the Phillies, hard for me to imagine that team not winning it. Their starting pitching has just been too good.

  151. BIG AL September 16th, 2011 at 8:24 am

    Kate -

    Losers look for, and make excuses. When you listen to Girardi, he simple says, all teams have injuries to deal with, and makes no excuses for a loss due to players being hurt or out, as it should be. That’s the difference between the Yankees and RS, the Yankees have class, the RS have excuses.

    I don’t think you can blame it on their offense. They probably did want to get more out of Crawford, but if you look at many of the others guys Gonzales, Pedroia, Ellsbury, Youkalis and they have to be estatic with what Big papa has done. Really it was the injuries to their pitching staff, Dice K, Buckholtz ect that did them in here in the late part of the season. I don’t think they imagined Wakefield having to carry that type of load.

    Look at the #$%@#$ NY Giants, it’s like the walking wounded out there. Injuries are the great equalizer. Lose a guy in football like a Rogers, or a Brady, or a Brees and your toast and that’s only one guy.

    I?d love to have the division wrapped up before the final 3 games in Tampa, then just play our AAA guys, and laugh while the RS whinned about us not putting our A team on the field.

    *********************************

    I like this plan. And they can do the player manager for the last game! Love that. :)

    Kate -

    Losers look for, and make excuses. When you listen to Girardi, he simple says, all teams have injuries to deal with, and makes no excuses for a loss due to players being hurt or out, as it should be. That’s the difference between the Yankees and RS, the Yankees have class, the RS have excuses.

    ___________________________________________________________________________

    AL, sorry respectfully Joe makes too many excuses so I don’t think he is the benchmark in that catagory. People differ on their opinions, but to me the guy is far too easy to get a pass from. Just my opinion.

    Look at the #$%@#$ NY Giants, it?s like the walking wounded out there. Injuries are the great equalizer. Lose a guy in football like a Rogers, or a Brady, or a Brees and your toast and that?s only one guy.

    Erin sorry I missed that one, it was a big loss for Indy. In Eli’s case personally I’d like to see Carr get some more playing time. I don’t dislike Eli, but I look forward to the end of that era. Too bad it’s so far away.

    Gary,

    I think more can be blamed on the coaching staff and Reese then the Giant injuries.

  159. Erin September 16th, 2011 at 8:45 am

    Gary-I know a lot of Giants fans aren’t exactly thrilled with him, but even though I’m a Colts fan I always have to root for Little Brother. ;)

    Somehow, I can’t even begin to get interested in football, pro or college, until the World Series is over.

    Though in Georgia, where losing two straight is a hanging offense, the drama surrounding Coach Richt can’t be avoided.

    Good morning everyone.
    Didn’t catch all the “drama” last night, thank goodness.

    Yanks61@5:10 posted a good article that you’d enjoy reading.

    As to the the Rays chances of catching the Red Sox, I hope they do, not by beating us, but by the Orioles somehow taking 5 out of 7 against the RS.

    NY Yankees 90 58 .608 99.7
    Boston 86 63 .577 4.5 88.7
    Tampa Bay 83 66 .557 7.5 8.2
    The last column is the current % chance of making the playoffs

    Good Morning.

    Last night’s sux game was over when it was obvious that all Weiland had was a FB. His welo and and location were good enough for a while but ML hitters will eventually get you if that about all you throw.

    He lasted all of 3 innings and just took them out of the game.

    Pitching is the coin of the realm and right now Boston has been getting little.

    Blake-

    You’re right. I’ve said the same thing about the great Theo. If I’m Henry
    his head rolls down Yawkey way. Bad acquisitions and destroyed the farm.

    New Post: Rodriguez eyeing return to Yankees lineup

    :arrow:

    The Yanks have 14 games left…..if they play .500 baseball (go 7-7) over that time then Boston would need to go 11-2 over their final 13 to tie them for the division.

  167. Yankee Trader September 16th, 2011 at 9:09 am

    MTU and Blake-

    Good morning

    I agree that Theo made some bad acquisitions this year in players like Jenks, Albers, Wheeler and Andrew Miller, but after trading hyped up “nobodies” to SD for Gonzalez, who are some of the other farm players that he traded away that have made it with other clubs?
