Yankees trio to appear on 'Letterman'

Approximately 24 hours after wrapping up the 27th World Series championship in franchise history, the Yankees will have a late-night feel on Thursday.

Shortstop Derek Jeter, catcher Jorge Posada and left-hander Andy Pettitte will all appear on "The Late Show with David Letterman" that night. The show airs at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.

Jeter batted .407 (11-for-27) in the Fall Classic -- a 4-2 Series win over the Phillies -- while Posada hit at a .263 clip (5-for-19). Pettitte, meanwhile, was the winning pitcher in the 7-3 Game 6 clincher and went 2-0 with a 5.40 ERA in his two World Series starts.

Each of them now has five World Series titles with the Yankees.

In addition, right-hander Joba Chamberlain will be on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," which starts at 12:35 a.m. ET on NBC.
