Pettitte, a member of the “Core Four” with five championships to his name, is third in franchise history with 219 wins. Giambi spent seven seasons with the club, hitting 209 home runs between 2002-08. Swisher played four seasons with the Yankees, earning a World Series ring in 2009.

Former Yankees outfielder Dion James and current manager Aaron Boone also will be appearing in their first Old-Timers’ game. James played parts of four seasons with the club, batting .302 with 12 homers in 1992-93 and 1995-96.
