New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi joined family and friends in Peoria, Ill. on Monday at his father's funeral.

Jerry Girardi, 81, died on October 6 after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.

The manager was joined by his wife and three children, during an off day in the American League Championship Series.

Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman also attended the funeral.

Girardi was ejected from Sunday night's game against the Tigers.

He will be in the dugout Tuesday night in Detroit as the Bronx Bombers try to battle back from a 2-0 deficit in the series.
