The Yankees have witnessed a number of legendary streaks across franchise history. Lou Gehrig played in 2,130 consecutive games, earning him the Iron Horse nickname. Joe DiMaggio had a 56-game hitting streak in 1941, a record many consider unbreakable. The Bombers have fielded a winning team for 26 straight years, the best mark in the history of baseball.
Then there’s John Sterling. The voice of the Yankees has called every game since 1989. He will step aside for the first time in 5,058 games on Thursday, citing health concerns. We all wish him well and look forward to hearing him step up to the microphone again soon.
In the meantime, we want to celebrate his historic run with a new shirt from BreakingT.
