There will never be another New York Yankee with a No. 6 on his back.
During a pregame ceremony Saturday, the Yankees officially retired Hall of Fame manager Joe Torre’s No. 6, honoring his steady hand for the team’s four World Series titles in the five years at the end of the last century.
Standing next to Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner beyond the center field wall in Monument Park, Torre unveiled the No. 6 plaque. Torre’s number is the 17th in franchise history to be retired, joining the likes of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio.
Here’s a shot of the painted number 6 on the field at Yankee Stadium.

Looks like the floor at the KFC Yum! Center is getting some attention this summer.

Some impressive locker room renovations happening over at LSU. Additional pics available at the link.
The south end zone of the Tiger Stadium isn’t the only place for renovations. The Jeff Boss Locker rooms were also redone and unveiled, the school announced Friday.
Work began after LSU’s regular season-ending victory against Arkansas and was expanded to 8,000-square feet by moving walls and raising the ceiling. The No. 13 Tigers will use the locker room for the first time on Sept. 6 when LSU opens its home schedule against Sam Houston State.
The LSU football team toured the facility for the first time Friday.
Just a reminder, there’s a certain 12-day marathon of a certain show happening right now on FXX.
[Update:] I should have added this. A couple years old, but still great: The Making Of “Homer At The Bat,” The Episode That Conquered Prime Time.
