You know the scene by heart.
A Yankee pitcher with two strikes on the batter. Yankee Stadium standing as one clapping for that third strike.
It started with Guidry.
1978…the Yankees climbing back from a 14-game deficit against the Boston Red Sox. Skinny lefty Ron Guidry on the mound with two strikes on the batter.
It’s a 40-year tradition that started with the man known as “Louisiana Lightning.”
Ron Guidry’s new book Gator: My Life In Pinstripes offers great stories on that incredible Yankee season, and more.
He stopped into the WDHA Morning Jolt to talk with Jim Monaghan and John Hodorovych.
