On Thursday night at Yankee Stadium, I will watch Derek Jeter play baseball for the last time ever. The first time I ever watched him play I was in fourth grade and now it’s time to say goodbye to the player we all came to expect in the lineup in every game of every season since 1996. But the Derek Jeter era isn’t the only one coming to an end on Thursday night in the Bronx. Vinny Milano, known as Bald Vinny of the right field Bleacher Creatures and the leader of Roll Call, is also retiring as a Section 203 regular, bringing to an end another important era for myself and Yankees fans.
Bald Vinny joined me to talk about the end of the Derek Jeter era and the end of a Bleacher Creature era, the differences between old Yankee Stadium and new Yankee Stadium and what the future holds for Bald Vinny’s House of Tees.
