This Day In Sports: New York Yankees Win 2009 World Series [Video]

 

On this day four years ago, the New York Yankees won their 27th World Series with the help of Hideki Matsui and his theatrics.

Andy Pettitte faced off against Pedro Martinez in a stadium which was filled with chants yelling “Who’s your daddy!”

Matsui couldn’t be stopped after going 3-for-4 with a single, double, a home run, and six rbi’s as he took home the World Series MVP.

“Winning the championship is such a great feeling,” Matsui said after the game. “I guess you can say that this is the best moment of my life right now.”

2009 was also the first season at the new Yankees Stadium, and the last world series won by the Yankees so far.
