As they often do, the Yankees are having an optional early batting practice after a day off.
A big crowd has turned out: A-Rod, Jeter, Melky, Robbie, Shelley, Wilson Betemit and Chad Moeller. Pitchers usually don’t show up. But Joba is here with his little son, Karter.
Karter is throwing a ball around with his dad. He’s a cute little kid.
