A statue of Steinbrenner will be introduced, followed by a performance by the Steinbrenner High School marching band. A rose will be laid at home plate by Steinbrenner’s widow, Joan, honoring ‘The Boss,’ and there will be a ceremonial flyover by two F18 Hornets from Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach, Va.
  • Former Yankees to be introduced before the game include: Yogi Berra, Goose Gossage, Ron Guidry and David Wells.

  • There are 33 days until Opening Day – March 31, Yankees vs. Tigers in New York.
