The Pinstripe Alley Yankees Highlights Archive

Because having this makes it way easier to find incredible moments from Yankees history.

"Maybe you'll be on this list as many times as me one day, kid. Well... you are Melky Mesa."
"Maybe you'll be on this list as many times as me one day, kid. Well... you are Melky Mesa."
Mike Stobe

Here's an Opening Night present for y'all.

Last July, I posted a repository of links to as many Yankees highlight videos that I could find. In this post, I will update that list, then pin it to the front page so that it will always be there for your convenience. It might as well just be there for me too since I spend an inordinate of time watching them...

I've kept the random "star ratings" that were in the last post. I'll try to update this list as much as I can whenever I find similarly worthy videos recently uploaded. Please let me know in the comments or by email if you find any other videos that you think deserve mention here, or if you have a question about whether a certain highlight not on here can be dug up. With a little more sleuthing on the endless Internet, I might be able to find it somewhere.

MLB Advanced Media has done a better job in the past several months of uploading some classic videos, so let's just hope they keep at it. Until then, enjoy.
