The 67th Old Timer’s Day at Yankee Stadium was another fun, sunny afternoon in the Bronx. Everyone from the unstoppable duo of Whitey Ford and Yogi Berra to brand new old-timer Orlando ‘El Duque’ Hernandez made the trek to 161st and River Avenue.

All of them touted the Yankees as the greatest organization in baseball, and all of them were honored to be back in pinstripes, even if they “get tighter every year,” as Joe Pepitone said.
