Mike Mussina walked out of Yankee Stadium wearing jeans, sneakers and a Captain America T-shirt. The crowd gathered near the players’ gate let loose when they spotted him.
“Mooooose,” they all bellowed. “Moooooooose. Mooooooooooooose.”
Mussina smiled and waved.
“That was a vintage performance by Mussina,” someone said. “The Yankees really need a win and he looked perfect for Old Timers’ Day.”
Mussina always dresses for the occasion.
When asked about wearing his socks high yesterday, Mussina said:
“It’s Old-Timers’ Day. Why not do it today?”
And why not go out and beat the team with the best record in baseball?
“We need to win ballgames,” Mussina told reporters after the Yankees 8-2 victory over the Angels. “These guys have always given us trouble. We looked like they were in it today, like everybody who put on the uniform thought it was an important game.”
The Yankees will put on their uniforms and hand the ball to Darrell Rasner for another important game today.
