The Yankees universe lost a pair of legends this week.

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. Let’s get started!

Rest in Peace, Joan and Arlene

The Yankees Universe lost a pair of legends this week, as Joan Ford and Arlene Howard, the wives of Whitey Ford and Elston Howard, passed away. The pair have been regular attendees at Yankee Stadium for many years, and their presence will be missed.

A Royal Wedding

Here in the social media roundup, we’ve been following Michael King’s wedding since he first got engaged. Well, the royal wedding has finally arrived, and while King may no longer be a member of the Yankees, the event was nonetheless the marquee social event of the offseason.

Many Yankees, past and present, showed up to celebrate their pal on his special day.

What I find most interesting, though, is just how King spent the day before his wedding — by having a bullpen session with his father in Central Park.

Monty’s Wedding Anniversary

Another former Yankee starting pitcher, Jordan Montgomery, celebrated his wedding anniversary. Congratulations to Monty and his wife!

Christmas in the City

Ahhh, December in New York City. The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, the winter markets in Bryant Park and Union Square, the Saks Fifth Avenue lights show — all these and more are a big part of what makes a New York Christmas. It is so iconic, in fact, that even longtime Yankees players who grew up in the area make a pilgrimage downtown for the holidays — just ask Dellin Betances.
