The Yankees are going to wear a special maroon cap during batting practice before the Virginia Tech game on Tuesday. Then they will switch to their regular caps with a Virginia Tech logo on the side.
The hats will be autographed after the game and auctioned off to raise money for charity.
The Yankees are bringing every position player on the 40-man roster. Jeff Karstens will start the game. None of the top pitchers will attend, mainly so they can stick to their routines. It also would be risky to have somebody pitch off a college mound or in cold weather.
