Counting Down Mark Teixeira’s Greatest Yankee Moments.

We are now less than a week away from Mark Teixeira‘s final game. I will be counting down his top six moments each day until Sunday. On Sunday we will honor Teixeira with a farewell post. 

Teixeira has been a Yankee now for seven seasons, and his career is almost complete; however, there is one final chapter to write. We will be counting down his top 6 moments as a Yankee starting today.

#6– Teixeira’s 400th career homer 

400th career Tex Message (Video)
On July 3, 2016 Tex became just the fifth switch hitter in the history of baseball to accomplish that milestone. He would also hit number 401 in the same game at Petco Park. 

He joined the greats of Mickey Mantle, Eddie Murray, Chipper Jones, and Carlos Beltran

This was a very special moment for Tex and a personal achievement that I am sure he is glad that he achieved. We are ranking this at his sixth greatest moment in pinstripes.
