Toby Wright, original Yankee Stadium organist from 1965 to 1966 and then from 1971 to 1977, was a wonderful performer and deserves far greater recognition as one of the best baseball stadium organists of all time. This audio clip with still photos, recorded in person by archivist Joey Cooperman during a mid-inning break in a 5/11/1976 game vs Detroit, is very entertaining. Hear the ambiance of the newly refurbished Yankee Stadium during a rainy Tuesday night's game (yes, that's Joey's radio you can hear in the background along with the Stadium vendors).Toby's finest moments were the late innings in 1972 when he played "Pomp and Circumstance" upon reliever Sparky Lyle's dramatic arrival in a tight game. Enjoy this first among a handful of organist Toby Wright moments at the old Yankee Stadium.
