    Who throws out the ceremonial first pitch next year? Mariano? Pettite? Both?

    Pettitte already threw out a ceremonial first pitch when he first retired. He did it in ALDS game 2 vs Tigers in 2011. Posada also threw out the first pitch on Opening Day 2012, so my guess either Mo or someone else
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    This. Not to be rude about it, but as far as I'm concerned everybody else can stand in line. As long as Yogi and Whitey are willing and able, it should be their day.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    For many years Joe DiMaggio threw out the first pitch on opening and for the playoffs. That's just the way it was. When he died (and with Mantle already gone) and Yogi back in the frey, Yogi started throwing out the first pitch. He wasn't as "automatic" as Joe D, but the batton was passed. Who knows how much longer he'll be with us - so if he can do it (which is questionble) he does it. We have many more years of Mo.

    We should really worry more about who is going to throw the last pitch next year

    Several that I look at from time to time have something similar. Usually it's used to add to a poster's "reputation".

    #8 turns 88 in May and all Yanks fans should want to see Yogi. As a NYY Legend this is his honor if his health allows him to be up in the Bronx on Monday, April 7th.
