This new Derek Jeter commercial is set to air tonight during the MLB All-Star Game tonight. Much like last year’s Rivera tribute, tonight will be more like a “Derek Jeter Special” than an all-star game. All eyes on Derek.

Derek Jeter stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon yesterday and put on quite a show. He sat down for an interview and stuck around for a second segment to do a musical skit. If you haven’t noticed already from his pre/post game interviews or the press conferences he’s held, Derek’s got a great sense of humor.
What we learned:
- Derek Jeter is willing to host SNL again if Fallon is involved.
- He once allowed Fallon to pick up the tab in a club..costing him $2500.
- Fallon once accidentally kissed Michael Jordan on the lips at one of Derek’s parties.

To honor the memory of Houk, Yankees will wear black armbands on the left sleeve of their jerseys for the remainder of the 2010 season.
The Yankees players and coaches wore black armbands on their left sleeve in honor of George M. Steinbrenner III at the Midsummer Classic, but that was only temporary. Soon after, the organization came up with a patch for both Sheppard and Steinbrenner. The armband honoring Houk will remain for the rest of the season.

According to the Associated Press, Ralph “The Major” Houk, passed away at the age of 90 this afternoon. The Yankees organization has taken another hit, as they’ve already been mourning the loss of Bob Sheppard and George M. Steinbrenner III.
Houk played for the New York Yankees from 1947-1954. A few years later, he became Casey Stengel’s successor as manager of the ball club. He managed the team from 1961–1963, and had a second stint from 1966–1973. He won two World Series championships as manager in 1961 & 1962, and won the 1963 AL pennant.
He also managed the Detroit Tigers (1974–1978) and Boston Red Sox (1981–1984). Ralph won 1,619 games during his 20-year career, which ranks 14th on the All-Time Managerial Wins list.

With the Cliff Lee saga, the passing of Bob Sheppard and George Steinbrenner, this press release concerning Old-Timers Day was buried under all of it. For those planning on attending, this is a must-read. I just purchased tickets to the game, and it will be a Yankee first for me. It should be a great experience.
The New York Yankees announced today that seven members of the 1950 World Championship team will be on hand at the 64th annual Old-Timers’ Day on Saturday, July 17, at Yankee Stadium. Introductions are scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. with the traditional Old-Timers’ game to follow, both of which will be aired exclusively on the YES Network. The Yankees will then host the Tampa Bay Rays at 4:05 p.m., airing on FOX.
The Old-Timers are headlined by seven members of the Yankees’ 1950 World Series-winning club, including Hall-of-Famers Yogi Berra and Whitey Ford, as well as Jerry Coleman, Don Johnson, Duane Pillette, Charlie Silvera and Hank Workman. For Johnson, Pillette and Workman, this year will mark their first Old-Timers’ Day appearances. Dr. Bobby Brown, Ralph Houk and Fred Sanford were invited, but will not be able to attend the event.
Also in attendance will be Hall of Famers Rich “Goose” Gossage and Reggie Jackson, along with 2009-inductee Rickey Henderson. In addition, Cecil Fielder will make his Old-Timers’ Day debut.
Joining the Hall-of-Famers and members of the 1950 Yankees club on the baselines will be more than 30 additional former Yankees and the widows of four legendary Yankees—Arlene Howard, widow of Elston Howard; Helen Hunter, widow of Jim “Catfish” Hunter; Kay Murcer, widow of Bobby Murcer; and Diana Munson, widow of Thurman Munson.
Those scheduled to attend: Luis Arroyo, Jesse Barfield, Yogi Berra, Ron Blomberg, Homer Bush, Rick Cerone, Chris Chambliss, Horace Clarke, Jerry Coleman, David Cone, Bucky Dent, Al Downing, Brian Doyle, Mike Easler, Dave Eiland, Cecil Fielder*, Whitey Ford, Oscar Gamble, Joe Girardi, Rich “Goose” Gossage, Ron Guidry, Charlie Hayes, Rickey Henderson, Arlene Howard, Helen Hunter, Reggie Jackson, Don Johnson*, Pat Kelly, Don Larsen, Hector Lopez, Lee Mazzilli, Gene Michael, Diana Munson, Kay Murcer, Jerry Narron, Jeff Nelson, Graig Nettles, Joe Pepitone, Duane Pillette*, Mickey Rivers, Charlie Silvera, Bill “Moose” Skowron, Aaron Small, Mel Stottlemyre, Ralph Terry, Mike Torrez, Bob Turley, Roy White, and Hank Workman* (*First-Time Old-Timer)
I’m sure that there will also something special planned for both Bob Sheppard and George Steinbrenner.

To commemorate the lives and recognize the passings of former Principal Owner / Chairperson George M. Steinbrenner III and longtime Yankees public address announcer Bob Sheppard, the Yankees will don uniform patches for the remainder of the season, beginning with Friday’s game vs. Tampa Bay at Yankee Stadium.
The Steinbrenner commemorative patch will be worn above the interlocking NY on the left breast of the Yankees’ home jerseys and above the letters “YORK” on the left breast of the Yankees’ road uniforms. Both locations are over the heart.
The Sheppard commemorative patch will be worn on the left sleeve of the Yankees’ home and road jerseys.
At tonight’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Anaheim, Calif., Manager Joe Girardi, Yankees players and Yankees coaches will wear black armbands on their left sleeves in honor of Mr. Steinbrenner’s passing.

Here are a couple of notes I thought you should know about:
Derek Jeter will have Bob Sheppard’s recorded voice introduce him tonight at the All-Star Game. “It’s a great idea,” Jeter said. “He deserves it.”
Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News reported that Major League Baseball will have a moment of silence for Steinbrenner before tonight’s All-Star Game. Flags are also being flown at half staff in his honor.
Yesterday, the New York Yankees organization and the game of Major League Baseball lost a legendary sports icon. Yankees’ longtime PA announcer, Bob Sheppard passed away at the age of 99.
His unique voice was synonymous with the New York Yankees. He always followed the three C’s: Clear, Concise, Correct. That was his approach every time he walked into his booth. I remember there were once plans to record his voice, so it could be played throughout the stadium forever. I think that just about sums up how much he meant to this franchise. He was dubbed, “The Voice of God” by Reggie Jackson. To us Yankees fans, he really was.
According to ESPN, Bob is survived by his wife, Mary, by sons Paul and Christopher, daughters Barbara and Mary, four grandchildren & about nine great-grandchildren. With Derek Jeter still planning on using the recording of Sheppard’s voice, we will still be able to hear his golden pipes throughout the stadium for many more years. His voice hasn’t gone silent, because it will echo through the bowels of Yankee Stadium in our minds forever.
“Most men go to work, but I go to a game.” -Bob Sheppard
