This week, SB Nation sites will explore the most heart-wrenching moments in sports history. With a storied franchise like the Yankees, there are plenty of times when fans were brought to tears. That leaves us with this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
What’s the most emotional moment in Yankees history?
You can interpret this question in a few different ways: moments you witnessed or occurred before you were born, or if the moments were sorrowful or joyful. Perhaps you go with the tragic-yet-inspiring Luckiest Man on the Face of the Earth speech Lou Gehrig delivered in 1939. Or maybe you remember the horrible days after Thurman Munson’s passing, when Billy Martin collapsed with grief down the steps of the church. Or, even the time Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte pulled Mariano Rivera from his final game. Head over to the FanPost section and submit your answer. We’ll feature one of the submissions on the front page on Friday.
How will we select which FanPosts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips, you should find yourself on the right track. We will also be looking for FanPosts with comments and recommendations. Depending on the number of responses we get, receiving some recs on your post could separate your FanPost from the crowd. Additionally, if your post has a number of comments then it may have sparked some worthwhile discussions. These are just a few things we’ll be looking for when we decide which post(s) to promote on the front page. We are always on the lookout for new talent, and the FanPost section can be a great way to get our attention.
Submit your answer in the FanPost section before Friday (May 29) for your post to be considered.
