The cache is NOT at the posted coordinates. You definitely would not want to be at the posted coordinates however if you were meeting any of the fellows listed in the puzzle below. You need to solve the SoDuKu-style puzzle to determine the coordinates for the actual cache.

For those not familiar with SoDuKu puzzles, please note the following ground rules: Enter a numerical digit (here, represented by a name) from 1 through 9 in each cell of the 9×9 grid below. As you will note, the grid is itself made up of 3×3 subgrids, starting with various names given in some cells; each row, column, and region must contain only one instance of each name. Some of the squares already have names in them. Your job, should you choose to accept it, is to fill in the blank squares. Just remember the one rule: Each row, column and box (i.e., subgrid) must end up containing all of the numbers from 1 to 9 (or here, their name equivalent). You now have the basis of all solving techniques: each number/name can only appear once in a row, column or box.
The twist here is that you have names and not numbers. Knowledge of Yankee history/trivia will give you the key. For instance, did you know that, in 1929, the Yankees introduced identifying numbers sewn on the backs of players' jerseys, the first time that uniform numbers were used on a full-time basis? Another piece of Yankee trivia is that, beginning with Lou Gehrig's number in 1939, the Yankees have retired 15 uniform numbers to honor 16 players and managers.
Cache is a camouflaged Lock N' Lock container containing New York Yankee merchandise. The cache is in a stone wall. Do not go tearing up the wall to find the cache. Use the hint instead.
