The New York Yankees paid tribute to former Yankee and Hall of Fame pitcher Richard “Goose” Gossage by presenting him with a plaque to be permanently displayed in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium. The plaque was presented at a formal ceremony as part of the annual Old Timers’ Day ceremonies at Yankee Stadium.
The plaque reads in part: “One of the most intimidating pitchers ever to don pinstripes, Gossage had an explosive fastball and fearless demeanor, frequently pitching multiple innings per appearance … Inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008. Dedicated by the New York Yankees June 22, 2014
