Bernie Williams Day idea beginning to take shape at Yankees offices?
This was posted on March 3rd, 2008 to Yankees.com:
Honoring Bernie: There is no official plan yet, but Hank Steinbrenner told The Associated Press that the Yankees will find a way to honor the career of former center fielder Bernie Williams.
A lifetime .297 hitter, Williams played 16 seasons with the Yankees, but separated from the organization awkwardly, declining a non-roster invitation to Spring Training last year. Williams is believed to be retired from baseball, though he has not officially done so.
So maybe the wheels are finally rolling! But we’re not there yet – lets get that jersey retired and get an annual day set up!
