Who Remembers the '63 Yankees?

|Ahh ... The Bronx Bombers. When I was a kid, I would watch in awe as my favorite team would take apart every other team (or so it would seem) every Saturday morning. Mantle, Maris, Berra, Howard, Tresh, Pepitone, Boyer, Richardson, Kubek & the pitching staff ... Ford, Downing, Terry, and the rest. I remember all through the 50s the Yankees would do such fantastic things and then came the early 60s focusing on the Maris/Mantle Home Run Derby with Maris finally getting the nod with 61* dingers in 1961. But it seems like 1963 was the last really good year from the guys together. I still have all the cards from that year and would not trade them now for anything. |
So - sports fans ... take a minute, think back, and see what you recall about these young men that gave me so much inspiration. The questions all concern the regular season unless otherwise noted (various sources were checked and rechecked to ensure my memory was correct).
