The Yankees Monument Park
I know that Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle, and Miller Huggins are all recognized with the large red granite blocks. I'm kinda wishing that Mariano Rivera would hurry up and retire so he could get his red granite block added to the collection very soon.
Wondering who you think will be the next to get added in this special way to Monument Park?
As for the plaques there that are also a great honor to have, I've kinda wondered why some guys that have been retired for at least 20 years or so from play as a Yankee ... wondering for what possible reason that some seem to have been overlooked.
Now, I'm speaking as a baseball history lover that does recognize and appreciate the great Yankee history that plays such a major part in baseball lore, so I hope you don't think I'm being out of line when speaking about the Yankees as possibly overlooking someone. Maybe you'll feel the same way about some of the possible additions I'm thinking of and maybe want to talk about their merits or lack there of in being recognized at Monument Park.
From the way past I'm thinking about Tony Lazzeri and Joe Gordon. Maybe even Earle Combs. Should a Spud Chandler or Charlie Keller maybe be included with a plaque? In more recent times, how about Willie Randolph or Goose Gossage? I have other players in mind but don't want to stick my neck out too far.
Do you agree with anyone that I have mentioned for possible inclusion into Monument Park?Just a Sox Fan with a Yankee Wife in tow... and with one little Red Sox fan now welcoming her new baby Yankee fan sister into "our" Yankees/Red Sox World.
