One of our readers, Dee, sent along this photo she took at Yankee Stadium today. That’s the Pope in the Popemobile.
The Stadium looks beautiful, doesn’t it? You forget sometimes that in addition to all the baseball games, the Stadium has hosted some of the most significant football games, boxing matches and religious events in history.
My understanding is the Pope left a note on Joe Girardi’s desk telling him not to pitch to Manny Ramirez with first base open. He also thinks Joba should be a starter.
Thanks to Dee for sending in this photo.
