Yogi Berra and Whitey Ford Highlight the New York Yankees 65th-Annual Old Timers Day June 26th

 ImageThe New York Yankees will celebrate their historic past with the 65th edition of Old Timers' Day on Sunday, June 26th. The annual event invites former Yankee players to be honored in a ceremony and participate in an Old Timers' game. The ceremony and game will take place before the Yankees battle the Colorado Rockies that afternoon.

At least 50 players are scheduled to attend this year, including Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, David Cone, Bill "Moose" Skowron and Bernie Williams. The full list of players can be found here.

Additionally, an interesting combination of dessert and baseball cards will take place with the presentation of a custom cake that will be served to the returning players at a dinner on June 24th. The three-tiered cake will have a base covered with baseball cards featuring 28 of the players. There was no mention of what would happen to the cards after the cake is eaten but if any icing-covered cards pop up on eBay, it will be safe to assume they came from this event.

The ceremony will be begin on Sunday at 11:30 AM EST and the Old Timers' Game follows. Both events will be aired on the YES network.
