You can thank Johnny Damon for Nick Swisher's salute

Johnny Damon receives a warm reception whenever he returns to Yankee Stadium, even getting the roll call treatment from the Bleacher Creatures.

The Indians outfielder claims he was the first to acknowledge the fans with a signature pose, a tradition Nick Swisher, Curtis Granderson and Brett Gardner have continued.

"During my four years here, I left a mark on a lot of the fans," said Damon.
