#60T Richard Dotson
Another uniform number mismatch.
And who is that in the background? Clearly it's someone standing in front of the 408 marker in center field at the (now old) Yankee Stadium. It's damned difficult to know for sure, but it looks like the guy has darker skin. That makes it most likely Claudell Washington, who played about 60% of the Yankees games in CF in 1988. But it might be Gary Ward (wrong body type I think) or Roberto Kelly. Even Rickey Henderson played 22 innings in CF for the Yankees that year. Two of his 3 games appearing in CF were road games, though, so it's pretty unlikely!
