YANKS ON DAVE
Published October 29, 1996
Several members of the Yankees, including JIM LEYRITZ, BERNIE WILLIAMS and WADE BOGGS, made cameo appearances on "Late Show" with David Letterman last night. The players stood on stage, greeted by a standing ovation, and waved to the audience. Manager JOE TORRE was Letterman's guest. Letterman, on the Yankees close Game Five 1-0 win: "How do you live through 162 of those games?" "See this," Torre said, leaning over and pointed to his bald spot. At the end of the segment, the Yankee players ran out with champagne bottles and dowsed and sprayed Torre. Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner is scheduled to be a guest tonight. Letterman, on today's parade: "I think this is kind of sad. I don't know that this is fair. After the parade the New York Mets have to clean up" ("Late Show," CBS, 10/28).
