The Yankees have three special guests tossing out first pitches this week:
Tuesday: U.S. Open golf champion Lucas Glover, who’s actually a Yankees fan.
Thursday: Tennis star Andy Roddick.
Friday: Tennis star Serena Williams.
Of more interest is that Francisco Cervelli played for the Gulf Coast League team today in Florida. He’s rehabbing an injury and the Yankees hope to get him ready for a September call-up. That will be welcome news to cougars in the metropolitan area.
Slade Heathcott (1 for 3) made his pro debut today. J.R. Murphy was 2 for 4 today and is 6 of 15 in four games. Clearly he’s the next Johnny Bench.
