Win one for Willie!

Man, I wish this ceremony could still be at the old stadium.

Today marks one of the Yankees' most enjoyable traditions, as it's the 69th Old-Timers' Day! The Yankees will begin the ceremonies at 4pm, during which they will honor former All-Star second baseman and coach Willie Randolph with a plaque in Monument Park, an honor that has long been deserved for the 53.7 WAR six-time champion. Another tradition will also occur as the ceremonies can only be seen on YES and out-of-region viewers get jack squat. Way to go, Yankees public relations. You rock.

In addition to the list of Old Timers showing up (linked here, though Lindsay Berra tweeted Yogi will unfortunately not be able to attend), the Yankees will also play the annual two-inning(ish) Old-Timers' Game with the lineups below:

The actual game will begin around 7:15pm, when Nathan Eovaldi will face Alfredo Simon and go for a far better start than the dumpster fire disaster of Tuesday night. The game can be seen on YES, FOX Sports-Detroit, MLB Network, and of course, MLB.tv.

Go Yankees, go baseball, yay Willie Randolph!
