As we enter Memorial Day weekend in full-force, it got me thinking. What are the staples of a good Memorial Day weekend?

Barbecues for sure.

Good friends.

A frosty adult beverage.

New York Yankees baseball.

Yep, with those four things in tow, you’re guaranteed to have a good time on what is really the first three-day weekend for many of us.

Since Memorial Day is about remembering the past, let’s take a look at some of the best and most memorable Yankee performances that occurred on Memorial Day.

Side note: While we remember the men and women of our armed forces who gave their lives to protect our freedoms and our way of life, don’t forget to celebrate and thank those who currently serve and those veterans whom are still with us. These men and women simply don’t receive the respect and admiration that they deserve. The next time you encounter either a veteran or current soldier, take a minute out of your day to shake their hand and say “thank you.” While you may or may not agree with the politics behind it all, these men and women do something on a daily basis that most of us could not even begin to imagine doing ourselves.
