Revisiting the Kentucky/Yankees connection

  • Print

Back on April 2nd I noted the uncanny connection between Kentucky basketball and Yankees baseball.  The last six times Kentucky won the NCAA Tournament the New York Yankees followed suit by winning the World Series that October.


Is there any reason to think this year will be different?  New York has homefield advantage throughout the American League playoffs and if Baltimore knocks off Texas tonight the Yankees would be the most complete team remaining in the AL playoffs.


I know there are plenty of Yankees haters out there and justifiable so but there's no need to bet against the trend at this point.  I'll be wearing pinstripes this October.
