It's Mother's Day and the Yankees were set to take on the Boston Red Sox at Yankee Stadium. But, unfortunately, we won't be able to see that matchup with the pink bats, wrist bands, and much more.
So let's instead flash back to some of the most recent Mother's Day moments for the Bombers, who have had some success of late in these games. There have also been some iconic moments, too.
We're going to start this list with one cool moment for Dot Jeter...
1) May 14, 2017: Derek Jeter No. 2 retired at Yankee Stadium
It was an extremely special day in the Bronx, as "The Captain" had his number retired, making it the last single digit to be retired by the Yankees. And it also happened to be Mother's Day, so Dot Jeter got to witness her son say Happy Mother's Day from the field as he unveiled his plaque that will forever be in Monument Park.
Also, Jeter's wife Hannah Davis was pregnant at the time with their first daughter, Bella, who was born later in August.
As for the game that day, it was a double header with the Astros in a rainy Sunday bout. The Yankees took the first game, 11-6, while Houston won the second game, 10-7.
2) May 13, 2018: Giancarlo Stanton leads Yanks with 4-for-4 day
Wearing a pink arm band to honor his mother, Jacinta, Stanton bullied the Athletics pitching staff with a 4-for-4 performance, including a big fly to right-center field. He had three RBI on the day as well.
Luis Severino also put in a great performance on the mound, going six innings and allowing just one run. And some flashy leather was displayed in the infield, too.
3) May 12, 2019: Clint Frazier's "Fancy" cleats and a Yankees win
Frazier grew up in a household with his mother, Kim, who loves cats. He had two of them growing up and they were nicknamed Papi and Fancy. Well, as is normal for Frazier and his cleats, a custom paint job was done on his Air Jordan 1s to display those two cats with pink accents all around to honor his mom on the special day.
The Yankees were also stuck in a pitcher's duel with Rays ace Blake Snell down in Tampa. But Masahiro Tanaka showed up with his A-game too, going seven strong innings to help lead the way to a Yankees win.
4) May 14, 1967: Mickey Mantle reaches 500 HR club
Last but not least, maybe the best Mother's Day moment in Yankee history is when one of their legends reached a milestone.
Mantle was sitting at 499 homers for well over a week, but on Mother's Day, he finally took a pitch to deep right field and reached 500 homers, becoming the sixth player in MLB history to do so. It was an amazing feat, and all the mothers present to watch that day at Yankee Stadium definitely never forgot it.
