The Yankees will wear uniform patches to honor the lives of George M. Steinbrenner and Bob Sheppard for the remainder of the 2010 season, beginning with Friday’s game vs. Tampa Bay at Yankee Stadium.
The Steinbrenner commemorative patch will be worn above the interlocking NY on the left breast of the Yankees’ home jerseys, and above the letters ‘YORK’ on the left breast of the Yankees’ road uniforms. Both locations are over the heart.
The Sheppard commemorative patch will be worn on the left sleeve of the Yankees’ home and road jerseys. At tonight’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Anaheim, all Yankees uniforms were affixed with black armbands on their left sleeves in honor of Steinbrenner’s passing.
