New York Yankees Parade

The New York Yankees Parade will be on Friday at 11 am.

As is traditional when one of the home teams wins the World Series, there will be a parage through central Manhattan in their honour. As it was the Yankees who won this time then it will be the New York Yankees parade.

It all starts at 11 am at Battery Place, then up Broadway and ending at City Hall. This route os sometimes referred to as the Canyon of Heroes for this is where all of the returning heroes have traditionally been welcomed by the City.

The New York Yankees parade will also likely be the last appearance of Hideki Matsui in a Yankees uniform as the World Series 2009 MVP becomes a free agent in the winter and so is unlikely to stay with the team. And of course, being the World Series MVP isn't a bad way to start a career as a free agent now, is it?
