Today is photo day. Starting with the coaches at 8 a.m. and the players at 8:15 a.m., everybody in uniform poses for a series of photographers wearing their full uniforms. Pitchers hold a glove and ball and position players a bat.
These are shots for baseball cards, newspapers, magazines, web sites, etc. It’s one of those rituals of spring training that every team endures.
The Yankees will be on the field around 9:30 for the workout. It is overcast in Tampa with a chance of rain. But there are enough indoor facilities for them to get done what they need to get done.
(Just a reminder, the LoHud Yankees Blog is all-natural today. Please, no talk about steroids.)
