The Yankee pitchers are on the field at McAfee Coliseum taking batting practice in preparation for the interleague road games coming up.

The starters this weekend in Houston – Joba Chamberlain, Mike Mussina and Chien-Ming Wang – are a career 8 for 55 (.145). One guess who has all eight hits.

Young pitchers, in some cases, get to the big leagues having never swung a bat. The National League is the only league in the world without the DH. In the minors, the only time pitchers hit is when two National League teams play each other.
