Welcome to Legends Field here in Tampa. It’s a beautiful sunny day in Florida (54 now, headed to 71 they say) and the Yankees will take on the South Florida Bulls.
The Yanks have not played a college team since March 30, 1998 when they beat San Diego State 12-3 in California.
South Florida had dropped two in a row. They are led by junior shortstop Adam Marusak. The Bulls will start sophomore right-hander Shawn Sanford (1-0, 2.25).
The Bulls are coached by Lelo Prado, who is in his second season. His brother-in-law, Tino Martinez, is a volunteer assistant coach. Yankees pitching coach Dave Eiland is a USF grad.
