Torre, Piniella to take part in Old Timers' Day

NEW YORK -- Hall of Famers Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Rich "Goose" Gossage and Reggie Jackson, along with David Cone, Bill "Moose" Skowron and others will headline the Yankees' 65th annual Old-Timers' Day, which will take place June 26.

Former Yankees managers Joe Torre and Lou Piniella, and former center fielder Bernie Williams will be making their Old-Timers' Day debuts, with Piniella wearing a Yankees uniform for the first time since 1988.

Torre, Piniella, Williams, Clay Bellinger, Brian Boehringer, Jose Cardenal and George Frazier will be first-time participants in the game.

They will be joined on the baselines by the widows of five former Yankees: Arlene Howard, widow of Elston Howard; Helen Hunter, widow of Jim "Catfish" Hunter; Jill Martin, widow of Billy Martin; Diana Munson, widow of Thurman Munson; and Kay Murcer, widow of Bobby Murcer.

The Yankees will also hold a special tribute for head athletic trainer Gene Monahan, who will retire following the season after 49 years with the organization.

Ceremonies will take place at 11:30 a.m. ET, with the Old-Timers' game to follow. Both will be aired on the YES Network, which will also carry the Yankees 2:05 p.m. game against the Rockies.
