One of the Yes Network's most aired shows are their Yankee Classics.  Generally, during the regular season on off days and mornings before a game when there was none the day before, you can catch the Yankees Classics.  Then they fill up a lot of the schedule with them during the off-season.  As a Yankee fan, I think it's a great idea, although the ranking of some games as "Classics" can sometimes be questions.

Well, this is an attempt to log as many of the Yankee Classics that have been shown including some commentary and rankings on whether they really are classics or...not so much.

World Series vs. San Diego Padres
Game One : Tino Martinez' Three-Run Homer
Saturday, October 17, 1998
Final Score: 9-6
Yankee Classic Rating (1 low to 10 high): 7
The Yankees showed the world just why they won 114 regular season games with a 7-run seventh inning.  The inning featured a three-run homer by Chuck Knoblauch and was capped by an upper deck Grand Slam by Tino Martinez off lefty Mark Langston.

Many argue Martinez was struck out looking earlier in the at-bat, but like the Cardinals in Game 6 in 1985 and countless others throughout history, the bottom line is they still had a chance to escape unscathed and failed to do so.

This is one of three Yankee Classics from this World Series, which is surprising given that it was a four game sweep.  One might not expect three classic games in what in retrospect seems like a blowout, but it really was a much more closely contested series than it should have been.  Give credit to the San Diego Padres.  But give the title to the New York Yankees.
