Twitter Tuesday will be a regular feature here on Pinstripe Alley. Frankie, Chris, and I, will be writing these weekly posts, which will quote the best tweets from across the twitterverse. We will quote tweets from anyone Yankees related, and also the funny tweeters.
For the first post, I have picked the best tweets from this weekend. In the future we will likely quote from an entire week of tweets. Let us know how you like this in the comments, how we can improve, and who else we should quote! Here is the list I have created.
Friday, June 3rd:
The Thunder with an interesting stat.
Fun @Yankees fact: Lou Gehrig hit 4 HR at Shibe Park in Philly on this date in 1932. Gehrig remains the only Yankee to hit 4 HR in a game.

The Yankees players on twitter didn't tweet much this weekend, but stay tuned for next weeks Twitter Tuesday. I'm sure we will get some player quotes!
