Yikes. It seems difficult to pick the greatest Yankees moment out of this bunch. Gehrig's speech, perfect games, World Series heroics, and Red Sox heartbreak reign supreme. The third round will kick off next week with the incredibly tough decision of choosing between two of the most iconic moments in baseball history: the "Luckiest Man" speech and the finale of arguably the greatest pitching performance of all-time.
