NEW YORK Old Timers’ Day at Yankee Stadium, a time honored tradition.

Rays Joe Maddon was anxious to go see some of the game and say hello to Yogi Berra. A number of Rays players watched from the dugout.

Wil Myers and Matt Moore took pictures with their phones. Moore then threw his bullpen session while the old timers played.

Former Devil Rays manager, Lou Piniella, one of the most popular players to ever don the pinstripes, singled to left field.

As for the current timers, the Rays will try to salvage the final game of this series with the Yankees and the finale of this seven-game road trip through Boston and New York.

Chris Archer starts for the Rays against Ivan Nova. Nova is 4-0 lifetime at home against the Rays.

Wil Myers is in right field. He is the first Ray to begin his career with six RBI in his first six games.

Some additional notes on his grand slam Saturday off CC Sabathia:

Myers is the first player whose first career home run was a grand slam off a former Cy Young Award winner.

He is the 187 player to his a grand slam for his first big league home run. Also on that list is Tim Unroe, father of Riley Unroe, the Rays second round pick.
