The Yankees and Hollywood: Through the Years

When Nick Swisher and his impeccable faux hawk made an appearance on Monday's episode of How I Met Your Mother, the outfielder became just the latest New York Yankee to dip his toes in the waters of Hollywood.

In honor of Swish's riveting performance at MacLaren's pub, River & Sunset has decided to take a look back at nine other great Yankee performances in the business of show.

Keep in mind this isn't an exhaustive list—Andy Stankiewicz may have played Victim No. 2 in a 1992 episode of Murder, She Wrote for all I know. Consider this simply a sampling of the Yankees' contribution to the entertainment business over the years.
