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.

Regular Season vs. Tampa Bay Devil Rays
Roger Clemens' Near No-Hitter
Wednesday, June 18, 2003
Final Score: 1-0
Yankee Classic Rating (1 low to 10 high): 3
As far as "classics" go.  No-Hitter = Classic.  Near no-hitter...usually not.  In this near no-hitter, Roger Clemens carried it into the eighth at Yankee Stadium against Tampa Bay, when with one-out Marlon Anderson got him for a line drive single to left.  Clemens finished the inning and left the game with the score tied at zero and only one-hit.  The problem was that Victor Zambrano (he was good once upon a time...before the Mets got him) was dealing a two-hitter of his own.

So, the game carried on with neither offense doing much of anything until the Yankees loaded the bases with no out in the 12th.  Todd Zeile struck out against Lance Carter, but Alfonso Soriano picked him up with a walk-off RBI single to give the Yankees a 1-0 victory.

If you like to reminisce about near no-hitters, then this is the "classic" for you.  Otherwise, you'll understand why this a long lost and forgotten "Yankees Classic."
