Black Tie International:
Ken Herbert Celebrates His Birthday & Derek Jeter Day at Yankee Stadium
Photos & Story by:  Sara Herbert Galloway

 

 

Ken Herbert Celebrates His Birthday and Derek Jeter Day

 at Yankee Stadium





Sara Herbert-Galloway, ‘Dad’ Ken Herbert, Jennifer Steinbrenner

Sunday, September 7, 2014 was officially declared Derek Jeter Day by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. Not only was it a very special day for Derek Jeter, the NY Yankees and their fans but it was a very special day for my father, Ken Herbert, who traveled from Pennsylvania to celebrate his 82nd birthday with his family.
 

Reggie Jackson and Ken Herbert

Yankee Stadium was sold out with nearly 50,000 cheering fans. Many of them wearing various forms of Derek Jeter attire and carrying signs expressing their love and gratitude to Jeter. All of the flags around the top of the stadium were white with # 2 prominently displayed and waving in the wind, in honor of
"The Captain."


 

 

 The celebration honoring Jeter's retirement began at 11 am, one hour before game time. The sun was shining and a soft breeze blew. The setting could not have been more perfect for a moment that will be remembered and spoken of for many life times to come. 


Derek Jeter's grandmother, parents and sister were the first people to walk onto the field and take their seats on the perfectly aligned white chairs. Jeter has always shown his appreciation for his family and this was another way to honor them. The celebrity list that followed left me in awe. Commissioner -Elect Rob Manfred, 'Hall of Famer' Reggie Jackson, Gene Monyhan, Bernie Williams, 'The Warrior' Paul Oneill, Dave Winfield, Hideki Matsui, Marino Rivera, Jorge Posada, Tino Martinez, Joe Torre, Cal. Ripken, Jr., and others.  George Steinbrenner's family and daughter Jenny showed their love and support. Derek's Turn2 Foundation's 2014 graduating class walked single file across the field in show of appreciation for all of his help. Michael Jordan received a standing ovation when his name was announced. The crowd roared throughout the celebration.




I was honored to have my loving father at my side in the Owner's Suite during the game. My fiancé Barry Klarberg helped me arrange a special surprise. During the 5th and 6th innings "Happy Birthday Ken 'Pappy' Herbert" was prominently displayed on Yankee Stadium's largest marquee. The announcer also said it on the stadium speaker. My father was shocked. I can still see the astonished look and big smile on his face. He turned to me and said, "Did they say my name?" I replied, "Not only did they say your name, dad, look at the marquee."  He could not believe his eyes...or ears! It was an amazing moment that I will always cherish.

I can't think of a better way to have honored my father in celebration of his birthday and know that he felt the love from me and his grandchildren, Justin and Alana. Barry's family joined us in the celebration, making it even more special. Derek Jeter's fans also showed him their love with a tremendous out pouring of cheers, gifts and standing ovations. The speeches brought tears to the eyes of many of us. Jeter was very moved. The usually reserved Derek could not help but smile throughout the first few innings of his legendary day.  Unfortunately, The NY Yankees didn't win against the Kansas City Royals, the score was 2-0, but as far as I am concerned, we were all winners that day. It was an honor to be a part of history and to be in the presence of so many great people.


 


Ken Herbert, Alana Galloway, Justin Galloway, Sara Herbert-Galloway

My dad was thrilled to meet and talk with Reggie Jackson, who is also from Pennsylvania and a Steeler fan. Jenny Steinbrenner couldn't have been kinder when she spoke with my father.
 

 Dad, I hope you always feel our love and know how much
we cherish and love you.

 

Happy Birthday!!!!
