Yankee Stadium, 1990
Nelson Mandela speaks.
Just months after his release from 27 years in prison, Nelson Mandela spoke at Yankee Stadium to more than 70,000 people while wearing a Yankees cap and jacket. He even said "I am a Yankee.'' That was a great moment in a season that saw the Yankees finish last, lose their own no-hitter, and owner George Steinbrenner receive a lifetime ban. Ahhh, those were the days.
