OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA - MAY 16: Former major league baseball player for the New York Yankees Bernie Williams preforms the national anthem prior to the start of the game between the Minnesota Twins and Oakland Athletics at RingCentral Coliseum on May 16, 2022 in Oakland, California.

Good morning, Sports fans!  Davey Mac back with an action-packed Sports Report for ya!  We’ve got the football, the basketball, and the hockey…but first…a little baseball!  And this is a cool story.  Former Yankee great Bernie Williams will make his New York Philharmonic debut on April 24th at the orchestra’s spring gala concert at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall.

Williams hits solo home run

BRONX, NY – OCTOBER 18: Bernie Williams #51 of the New York Yankees hits a solo home run in the sixth inning during game 1 of the Major League Baseball World Series on October 18, 2003 at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.

 

In addition to being a five-time All Star and four-time World Series Champion for the Yankees…Bernie is also a highly-respected classically trained guitarist and has released two albums.  Bernie began playing the guitar at age seven and has performed with Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen, and more.  And…he also jammed with fellow Yankee legend and outfield partner Paul O’Neill (on drums) for a Yankees promo for the MSG channel.

 

 

Bernie has also appeared on late night television.  He and his band performed on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.  Check out the song!

 

 

One of my favorite Bernie performances was when he went into enemy territory at Fenway Park in Boston.  Bernie was there to support Derek Jeter and play “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” for Jeter’s last game ever.

 

Bernie is pure class.  Oh, and by the way, he should be in the Hall Of Fame!  Seriously!  Bernie’s stellar career went from 1991 to 2006…and in that time Bernie batted a career .297, with 287 home runs, and 1, 257 RBI.  He was also the 1996 American League Championship Series MVP…a 4-time Gold Glove winner for his excellent defense in centerfield…a Silver Slugger winner (2002)…the 1998 American League Batting Champion…and as mentioned before…a five-time All Star and four-time World Series champ.  Yeah…he belongs in Cooperstown!  Anyway, congrats, Bernie, on the awesome gig with the New York Philharmonic!  You rock!  I’m Davey Mac…now on to the Scoreboard!
