Immediately after tonight’s postgame show, the YES Network will premier its latest Yankeeography on the life and career of David Wells.
Among the stories Wells tells is this one: When David Cone pitched his perfect game at Yankee Stadium on July 17, 1999, Wells was with the Blue Jays and felt tempted to fly to New York to celebrate with Cone.
“It was on (TV) and I was watching,” Wells said. “I kid you not, I almost got dressed and went to the airport (thinking), ‘I’m going to go party with my buddy.’ I came that close to leaving.”
The David Wells Yankeeography is scheduled to being at 11 p.m.
