The Yankees and Mets are going to play their third dual-stadium doubleheader, June 27th. The teams will make up the game that was rained out May 16th at 2pm and then head over the Shea Stadium to play their regularly scheduled game at 8pm.
This will be the third time the teams have done this. The first in 2000 saw the Yankees sweep both games 4-2 with Roger Clemens beaning Mike Piazza in the nightcap. The Yankees swept both games in 2003 as well.
While it will be a fun to say goodbye to two ballparks, playing the game on September 11th would have been a better idea, especially with the donation to 9/11 charities included. Instead June 27th is the day, just 13 days from today. But, there is a decent chance that Willie Randolph won’t be managing the Mets then.
