FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»September 11, 2002: At Yankee Stadium the Yankees remember the tragedy of last year with a special monument in Monument Park memorializing those killed as part of the 50–minute pregame ceremony. The Orioles wear 5–sided patches honoring the victims of the attack on the Pentagon. The game goes 11 innings, before Nick Johnson ends in with an RBI single. The Yankees win, 5–4, despite striking out 14 times. Orlando Hernandez issues a walk in the 8th when he goes to his mouth on a 3–2 count while standing on the mound. It was the first walk in six full games (65 innings) by a Yankee pitcher, the longest steak since WW2, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Steve Karsay later hands out another walk.
