There were no changes on this list from 2017. Does anyone else remember Antoan Richardson storming out of the Yankees’ dugout in 2014? He also made a nice catch that year in right field, and scored on Derek Jeter’s walk-off hit in Jeter’s last home game of his career. Antoan was the Yankee’s pinch runner that year.

Oddly, Rico Noel was brought into New York the very next year, 2015, to perform the same role for the Bronx Bombers.
