Late report today for Yankees

If you’re waiting for reports on what happened today in camp, you’re going to wait a while.

The Yankees are just getting here now. The “dress” time is 11:45 a.m. and they’ll be on the field around noon. Most camps give players extra time on Sunday to get some sleep or go to church.

Or as LaTroy Hawkins said the other day, “They have church on TV down here, you don’t have to leave the couch.”


I’ve been getting a bunch of e-mails from people asking whether they can attend practice. The answer is yes. Practice is open to the public and free of charge. They even open up the concession stands.

You can watch from inside the stadium or walk around and watch the workouts on the side fields.

Now be warned: It’s often not that exciting. Infielders take grounder, outfielders catch flies and pitchers work on covering first or throwing to second. Then they take BP, do a bunch of running and go home. It lasts about two and a half hours.

But you can get close enough to see Giambi sweat. Then again, you don’t have to be that close to see that.
