New York Shows Off Its Sports History

At a kick-off event in July, New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman joined former New York Knick John Starks and other local athletic luminaries. Cashman, who was a history major in college, compared New York Sports Tours to the Broadway musical “Hamilton” in its ability to turn a history lesson into entertainment. Starks talked about how, even as a veteran of the New York sports scene, he learned from the tour.

“You think you know a little bit about New York, but you don’t know a lot about New York until you take this tour,” he said.

O’Keefe shared at the kick-off event that one early tour participant remarked “This is more of a PBS tour than an ESPN tour.”

“We took that as a compliment,” O’Keefe said.

Tickets cost $150 per person for the three-hour tour or $200 for the four-hour experience, which involves a post-tour meal with a former athlete like Starks. The meal is at Keens Steakhouse, which once had a Pipe Club that included members like Babe Ruth.
