Yankees fan Shep Tapasak retells his brush with Billy Martin during a doubleheader on Banner Day 1975, while he paraded around with a “Billy Can!” bedsheet. Of note, this is during the mid 70’s when Yankee Stadium was undergoing renovations, so the early days of “Billy Ball” were actually at Shea Stadium.
Shep also references Billy’s impact on future Hall of Famer, Rod Carew.
Thanks Shep! Here’s to the Yankees Fans of the World!
