It’s Sunday once again, and you know what that means — it’s time for our weekly social media roundup! As the days get shorter, the nights get longer, and the 2023 Yankees season shrinks further into the rearview mirror, but still we stand guard, following our favorite Yankees heroes — on social media, that is.

The Captain’s Number Retired

Last Sunday, Yankees Captain Aaron Judge was honored by his alma mater, as Fresno State retired his number 29. The YES Network made sure to highlight the event, and Judge himself took to Instagram to thank his alma mater for the “special weekend.”

Bernie performing for a good cause

Former Yankees center fielder and current famous guitarist Bernie Williams will be performing alongside Kevin Bacon, Sheryl Crow, and many others at NYU on December 7th. The event is being held by the Artists for Action, an organization dedicated to the elimination of gun violence in this country.

Austin dresses Wells

Yankees catcher Austin Wells went to a wedding this past week.

See, Hal, a guy can look nice and neat with facial hair — what’s wrong with a well-trimmed beard?

A-Rod playing some b-ball

On the baseball diamond, Alex Rodriguez was one of the greatest players of all time. On the basketball court, though, he’s looking like...well, me:

Very much appreciate the inspiring words, Alex, but maybe leave the three-pointers to the players your team pays.
