Former New York Yankees Bench Coach Don Zimmer Recalls Uncertain Morning of 9/11 (Video)

Former Red Sox manager and Yankees bench coach Don Zimmer, now an adviser with the Tampa Bay Rays, had an autograph session planned for the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. His ride into the city never showed, however, and soon Zimmer saw black smoke coming from downtown Manhattan.

Needless to say, his autograph session was canceled.

Check out the video above from Red Sox Gameday Live to hear more of that fateful morning.
