Hello all. I’m giving away one Yankees Majestic jersey to one of my lucky Twitter followers. In order to enter this contest, you must submit your answers through Twitter to @Zellyanks with the hashtag #ZellsPinstripedBlogContest.

***In order to qualify for the contest, you must like “Zell’s Pinstriped Blog” on Facebook and follow @RabbleTV’s Twitter account for allowing me to do this giveaway. If you don’t do this, your submissions will not count.***

The contest will run until 3pm. The person with the most correct answers will win. Just simply identify what/who is being described in each statement. If we need a tiebreaker, I will create one with tougher questions.

UPDATE: 12:03PM ET: Extending the duration of the contest until 8:00PM…because I know a lot of people are at work and are unable to participate at this time.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned so far this season…it’s that the Yankees offense can make anyone want to drink. In the bottom of the 7th inning of Thursday night’s game against the Blue Jays, Jimmy Fallon chugged a beer in front of Lorne Michaels in the Legends seats. The man was thirsty!

  • Not everyone in Japan knows who Derek Jeter is. Some think he’s a catcher. Others have no idea who he is. That must be refreshing for him.
  • John Sterling unfortunately lost everything in an apartment fire. He lost all of his World Series rings in the blaze, except for 2009 (which he was wearing). Alex Rodriguez even offered him a place to stay.
  • Hannaah Davis landed the cover of Sports Illustrated’s 2015 Swimsuit Issue. I met her at the “Swim City” event in Manhattan and I got a chance to meet her. She was absolutely beautiful. I even asked her to take a selfie with me and she gladly did. She’s got my approval (not that she needs it).
  • Joe Torre wants everyone to keep quiet about A-Rod and let him play. Mr. T stated, “Obviously, what Alex did was wrong. He admits that. There’s nothing left for him to do but play baseball.”

I can’t count how many times I watched ‘The Sandlot’ as a child. Whatever number it was, it was an unhealthy one. With some time to burn in spring training, some players on the Yankees roster re-enacted the classic scene in the movie when Smalls realizes the ball he handed over to “The Beast” was autographed by the greatest ballplayer who ever lived, Babe Ruth (and not some wimpy deer). The video stars: Dellin Betances, Brian McCann, CC Sabathia, Brett Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury. McCann deserves an Oscar nomination for playing Ham Porter.

Here’s a clip from April of 1987, when George Steinbrenner and Billy Martin appeared on Letterman. Billy shares a story about a time he went hunting with Mickey down in Texas.

If you’d like to see the full interview, fast forward to the 15:15 mark on this video.
