Yankees Old Band Back Together for One Final Rodeo

In November of 2007, the Yankees signed 36 year-old Jorge Posada to a four-year, $52 million pact. At the time, they knew that it would probably be the final contract handed out to their longtime backstop, but what the Yankees didn’t predict is that his fellow core four buddies would still be marching on together in the year 2013.

Thirty one years after the Beatles first landed in the United States, another famous quartet touched down for the first time in the summer of 1995. That year, under manager Buck Showalter, the Yankees won the inaugural American League wild card, and the core four all first put on their pinstripes.

For many New York Yankees fans, getting a chance to meet the players, throwing out the first pitch at a game, and having the team throw a party just for you would all be bucket list items; once in a lifetime opportunities that may never be accomplished. On Wednesday, June 27th, Andy Fass did all of those things, and he is only five years old. Andy will start kindergarten in the fall, and he will have a pretty cool story to tell the other kids.
