New York Yankees a class act all the way
Whether you love or hate the New York Yankees, the fact remains they are one of the classiest organizations in all of sports. Yesterday's ring ceremony only furthered my opinion on this matter. As many of you were aware, before yesterday's game between the Yankees and the Los Angeles Angels. the Yankees were presented with their 2009 World Series rings. Hideki Matsui, on the Yankees roster last year, but playing for the Angels this year, was also presented with a ring. When Matsui's name was called, he was greeted with a standing ovation by the Yankee crowd, and all of the current Yankees (who received a ring) went out to embrace their former teammate. Say what you want about the Yankees, that the organization buys World Series, that they are the evil empire, but you cannot deny they are a class act. If yesterday's actions are indication, they are still acting with the same class that made them 'America's Team' all those years ago.
