NEW YORK – July 20, 2009 – The MetLife Yankees Player of the Month Sweepstakes offers fans the chance to be part of New York Yankees history.  Each month, from April 2009 through September 2009, one winner is randomly selected from the sweepstakes’ online entrants.  Sgt.

“Other than my U.S. Army uniform, there is only one other uniform that I would wear with similar pride and that’s the New York Yankees pinstripes” said Sgt. Bracy of U.S. Army’s 3rd Brigade.  “I would like to thank MetLife and the New York Yankees for this once in a lifetime opportunity to present the Yankees Player of the Month award.”
