After his playing career, Singleton became a television broadcaster, working on Yankees games for YES Network from 1997 to 2002 and again from 2013 to 2018. He has also worked as a color analyst on national broadcasts for CBS, NBC, ESPN, and MASN.

The Game Itself
The Bombers are up against the Red Sox. Who is calling the game? The answer is simple. The game is being called by Michael Kay and David Cone.
Pitching is the most important part of baseball, and the Yankee’s pitcher is a crucial player on the team. The pitcher throws the ball to the catcher, who then return it to the pitcher. The catcher must catch the ball in order for the pitch not to be a “ball.” If the pitch is not caught, it is considered a “strike.” Three strikes and the batter is out.
The goal of pitching is to get batters out. There are many ways to do this, but the most common are by strikeouts, fly outs, or ground outs. A strikeout occurs when the batter swings at and misses three pitches, or when the catcher catches three consecutive pitches without the batter swinging. A fly out occurs when a batted ball goes high into the air and is caught by an infielder or outfielder before it hits the ground. A ground out occurs when a batted ball hits the ground and then is thrown to first base before the runner can get there.
The hitting in baseball is when one of the nine players on the fielding team tries to hit the ball that the pitcher throws and then running around the bases. The aim is to score runs by touching all four bases, in order, and then return to home plate. When a batter turns three bases, it is called a home run. A run is also scored if the batter hits the ball and somebody else on their team round all four bases before the fielding team can get them out.
There are nine defensive positions in baseball. Of these, only first base, second base, shortstop and third base are referred to as infielders. The other five positions are left field, center field, right field, catcher and pitcher. A game of baseball is played by two teams of nine players each who take turns batting and fielding.
The object of the game is to score runs by hitting the ball and then running around four bases — first, second, third and home plate. A run is scored when a player touches all four bases before the fielding team can get him or her out. The team with the most runs at the end of nine innings (or seven innings in some leagues) wins the game.
The defensive team tries to stop the offensive team from scoring by getting batters out. There are three ways a batter can be called out:
· If he or she hits the ball into the air and is caught by a fielder before it hits the ground;
· If he or she hits a grounder that is fielded by the defense and thrown to first base before the batter gets there; or
· If he or she fails to hit the ball fair and is struck out by the pitcher.
The Yankees are one of the most storied franchises in all of baseball. They have a rich history dating back to 1901, when they were founded as the Baltimore Orioles. They have 27 World Series titles, which is the most of any team in baseball. They are also the most valuable franchise in baseball, worth an estimated $3.7 billion. The Yankees have a large and loyal fan base, who support the team through thick and thin.
The Bleacher Creatures
The Bleacher Creatures are a group of hardcore New York Yankees fans who occupy the seats in the bleacher section of Yankee Stadium. The Creatures are perhaps best known for their roll call, in which they chant the name of each Yankees player as he comes to bat. The roll call is initiated by a single fan who yells the player’s name, and is then echoed by the rest of the section.
The most dedicated Yankees fans are the ones who show up to the stadium day in and day out, rain or shine. They are the ones who know every player on the team, both current and past. They can tell you statistics and stories about their favorite players that you would never be able to find in a book.
These fans are die-hards. They live and breathe Yankees baseball. And they would never dream of watching a game from anywhere else but Yankee Stadium.
