Girardi: Walk-off pies may continue without A.J. 5

Thought the walk-off pie celebrations were a thing of the past now that A.J. Burnett has been traded to Pittsburgh? Not so fast says Yankees manager Joe Girardi.

“The guys enjoyed it,” Girardi told Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger. “So someone might do it, continue on the tradition.”

As rough as Burnett was on the mound at times, he was generally known as a great teammate and when he showed up in 2009 he began the tradition of hitting the player who drove in the game winning hit in walk-offs in the face with a pie. It helped to loosen up a once tight clubhouse culture.
