It will come as no surprise to any reader that, as with any other field of interest, there is a lack of huge moments in baseball history for February 29. And Yankee history, specifically, is virtually nonexistent. Despite numerous frustrating attempts, research did come up with the fact that it was the day that former Cleveland third baseman Al Rosen, who served as Yankee General Manager for a number of years, was born in 1924. As a member of that dying breed of combatant who spent their entire playing careers wearing one uni, Al hit 192 home runs, drove in 717 runs, and stole 39 bases for the Cleveland Indians from 1947 through 1956. And he served as Yankee President, the guy who hired ex-teammate Bob Lemon to replace Billy Martin, in the memorable 1978 season.
