The Yankees will be holding a Mike Mussina Hall of Fame Celebration this Sunday, September 1 before the Yankees take on the Oakland Athletics at 1:05 p.m.
Those attending are encouraged to arrive early, with gates opening at 11:00 a.m. and fans should be in their seats by 12:30 p.m. to enjoy a special pregame ceremony featuring Mussina, his family and his Hall of Fame plaque from Cooperstown. Mussina will also throw out the game’s ceremonial first pitch to his son, Peyton.
Guests will be able to view and take photos of Mussina’s Hall of Fame plaque, which will be on display inside Gate 2 from the first pitch through the start of the seventh inning.
Additionally, the first 18,000 Guests in attendance will receive a Mike Mussina T-shirt courtesy of Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews.
