The NY Yankees announced today that they will be retiring the #69 in honor of Hugh Hefner. Hugh Hefner was the iconic publisher and founder of the groundbreaking Playboy Magazine. Yankees principal owner Hal Steinbrenner stated "Hef was a huge part of my childhood. I remember my Dad caught me in the woodshed one time while I was 'studying' the June 1980 edition of Playboy. Bo Derek was on the cover, and let's just say, I wore the crap out of that magazine. By the time I was through with that magazine it could stand in the corner by itself. But I digress, Hef was a great man and changed the world for the better. I still laugh everytime someone says #69 though! Sixty Niiiiine!" 
In response to the news Derek Jeter tweeted, "Great News, a well deserved honor. I loved Hef, I remember the first time I went to the mansion, the hot tub looked like a bowl of egg drop soup." 
The Yankees will have a ceremony next season and allow naked women in free.  

Led by Liv Warfield of Prince’s New Power Generation and Nancy Wilson co-founder of Heart, ROADCASE ROYALE has a rich background in rock and R&B. Warfield, Wilson, and their bandmates bring their decades of experience from the upper echelon of the music industry to ROADCASE ROYALE, along with a renewed sense of direction and drive.
Joining Wilson and Warfield are Warfield’s lead guitarist Ryan Waters and Heart veterans Dan Rothchild (bass), Ben Smith (Drums) and Chris Joyner (Keys). Each of these members shine with their various sensibilities creating the group’s sensitive, passionate, and driving rock and R&B sound.
