Talk about no-class. Joe Torre and Roger Clemens were absent from, and any mention of them excluded from, the Sunday night memorial at Yankee
Most Yankee fans agree that the farewell to Yankee stadium on Sunday night was a memorable tribute. Even if you didn’t watch the farewell
ceremony Sunday and aren’t a Yankee fan, you can read this nostalgic essay by Billy Crystal (and there are other links on the left to more essays)
to get a sense of what Yankee stadium embodies to its fans.
But since Sunday night, others have pointed out that something was missing from the ceremony. Or rather, two people were missing. Both Joe Torre and
Roger Clemens, two Yankee greats, were completely excluded, for different reasons, from any mention in the pre-game ceremonies.
