The New York Yankees will return home tonight for the first of seven games at Yankee Stadium this week. The stretch of games will feature a four-game series vs. the Detroit Tigers (Monday-Thursday, August 4-7) and a three-game set vs. the Cleveland Indians (Friday-Sunday, August 8-10).
The Yankees will host Paul O'Neill Day at Yankee Stadium on Saturday, August 9. As part of the ceremonies, O'Neill will be honored with a Monument Park plaque that will recognize his career. Family members and former teammates are expected to take part in the festivities. Fans are encouraged to arrive early and be in their seats by noon.
O'Neill spent the final nine seasons of his 17-year Major League career in the Bronx (1993-2001), winning four world titles with New York (1996, '98-2000). Affectionately known as a "warrior" to many of his fans, he concluded his Yankees career with a .303 batting average, 304 doubles, 185 home runs and 858 RBI, claiming the American League batting title in 1994 with a .359 average.
