Yankees return to Yankee Stadium for nine-game homestand

Victims of recent Orlando tragedy to be recognized in a pregame ceremony on Tuesday, June 21

The New York Yankees will return home tomorrow for the first of nine games at Yankee Stadium. The stretch will feature a two-game series vs. Nolan Arenado and the Colorado Rockies (Tuesday-Wednesday, June 21-22), a three-game set vs. the Minnesota Twins (Friday-Sunday, June 24-26) and a four-game series vs. the Texas Rangers (Monday-Thursday, June 27-30).

Prior to the Yankees-Rockies game on Tuesday, June 21, the victims of the recent tragedy in Orlando will be recognized in an on-field ceremony. Preceding a moment of silence, players from both teams will line up on each baseline as Yankees Manager Joe Girardi and Rockies Manager Walt Weiss lay a rainbow wreath at home plate in memoriam. Major League Baseball Vice President of Social Responsibility and Inclusion, Billy Bean, will be a special guest of the Yankees.

Mickey Mantle Triple Crown Bobblehead Night will take place on Friday, June 24. The first 18,000 Guests in attendance will receive a bobblehead, courtesy of AT&T.

The Mantle bobblehead marks the return of limited-edition collectible player bobbleheads, presented by AT&T. The set of four - Mickey Mantle Triple Crown on June 24, Didi Gregorius on August 7, Dellin Betances on September 10 and Roger Maris on October 1 - is the fourth series in a collection of Yankees bobbleheads. The Mantle bobblehead distribution comes 60 years after his 1956 Triple Crown-winning season, while the Maris bobblehead falls on the 55th anniversary of the outfielder hitting his 61st home run during the 1961 season to establish a then-Major League singleseason home run record.

On Friday, June 24, the Hard Rock Cafe presents Little Steven's Underground Garage Concert Series, powered by JBL will kick off in the Pepsi Food Court on the third-base side of the Field Level with Wyldlife.
