If I were going to make a list of things I don’t know about, we would be here a long time, but I never thought that something about the Yankees would make that list. While I cannot recite the starting lineups since 1950, I do consider myself to be a pretty knowledgeable fan when it comes to baseball and the Bombers.
So, I was somewhat taken aback when I learned that there were lyrics to the Yankees’ theme song. From watching plenty of Yankees’ games on Channel 11, I can hum that song in my sleep, but I never knew it had words! And apparently the writer wrote a number of other songs as well.
So Yankees’ fans, did you know about the words or did you assume like I did that there weren’t any words attached to the tune?
