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. Los Angeles Dodgers
Game Six : Yankees Win Second Consecutive World Series
Tuesday, October 17, 1978
Final Score: 7-2
Yankee Classic Rating (1 low to 10 high): 7
While not a particularly exciting game, it was close until the 6th when the Yankees took a 5-2 lead and extended it to 7-2 in the 7th. But, it is a World Series clincher and a rare vintage Yankee Classic that they air more than you might expect. It does feature two Yankee Hall-of-Famers on the mound with Catfish Hunter starting until he was relieved by Goose Gossage, who took the ball in the eighth. Also, another Hall-of-Famer, Don Sutton, started for the Dodgers.

It's good to watch the older games with the rudimentary graphics, classic announcers and something like three cameras to cover the entire game. It may not be the type of game you sit down and watch from start to finish, but fun to tune in for a few innings.
