Did you know that…
… ’27 Yankees’ is a Baseball reference ??
The 1927 New York Yankees season was their 25th season. The team finished with a record of 110-44, winning their fifth pennant and finishing 19 games ahead of the Philadelphia Athletics. New York was managed by Miller Huggins. The Yankees played at Yankee Stadium. In the World Series, they swept the Pittsburgh Pirates. This Yankee team is known for their feared lineup, which was nicknamed “Murderers’ Row“. This team is widely considered to be one of the best baseball teams in history.
Murderers’ Row, huh ?? 🙂
I want to know what Nell and Eric are saying/doing as they walk out. 🙂
My Dad saw a Boston Red Sox/New York Yankee ballgame in Boston’s Fenway Park in 1927 as a 10 year old kid. Lucky guy! He said that this Yankee team was the best team that he ever saw play in 85 years of being a diehard Red Sox fan. Considering all the other World Series teams that followed that year, that is saying quite a lot! Any baseball fan who knows baseball history can easily pick out a whole bunch of players that reside in the Hall of Fame from this team!
I can see that Hetty thinks quite highly of her team for her to say that!
