A few days ago, Pete Abraham ran an item on how the Yankees have handled "The Final Year of Yankee Stadium." Previously, he suggested that it'd sure be nice to see Bernie Williams show up in some capacity. I couldn't agree more. It was a drag that Bernie wasn't there for Old Timer's Day. But nevermind about that, so long as he shows up before the final curtain drops two weeks from yesterday.
Asked if Williams would visit Yankee Stadium during the final home stand, Fortunato seemed to indicate that he would. Williams has not returned in public to the Stadium since his last game there as a player in 2006.
"Those details are all being worked out as we speak," Fortunato said. "As soon as there's something official or final, we will work on that. All that stuff is being worked on right now. I think it's going to be a good day."
