Friday Night's Ceremonies

The Yankees announced their plans for Friday night's game, the first game back in the Bronx since the passing of two Yankees icons. Here's the details via Mark Feinsand:
Fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 6:45 p.m. for the pregame ceremony which will include a video tribute to “The Boss” and a special moment of silence honoring both Yankees icons. Further tributes to Steinbrenner and Sheppard will be revealed during Friday’s ceremony, and additional ceremonies will be held during Saturday's Old-Timers’ Day.

United States Army Sergeant First Class Mary Kay Messenger will sing the national anthem on Friday, and the West Point Color Guard will present the colors.

In addition, a wreath will be placed in front of Steinbrenner’s statue in the Yankee Stadium Gate 2 Executive Lobby as well as in front of Sheppard’s plaque in Monument Park.
Classy as always. It will be a special, but sad weekend in the Bronx..... The Boss would want a sweep.
