photoThanks to everybody who came to PNC Field in Scranton on Sunday for the second annual LoHud Yankees Blog Outing.

We had about 85 people show up to see a doubleheader with Pawtucket. Scranton lost 5-3 then won 6-1. Man of the people Shelley Duncan was 3 for 6 the day with two homers and five RBI. Shelley has 29 jacks and 92 RBI in 115 games for Scranton.

Shelley came over before the game to sign for the folks and posed for photos, too. Frankie Cervelli also stopped by. Got to see Ramiro Pena play some center field. Austin Jackson was in left and Ivan Nova pitched, although not too well.

Thanks to Ron for doing such a great job of organizing everything. Thanks also to the Yankees (especially Connie Schwab) for giving me some t-shirts and hats to give away. Scranton was a great host and hopefully we can do it again next season. We even had our event mentioned on the scoreboard, which was cool.

The best part of the day is that we helped raise nearly $800 for the Cody Miley Scholarship Fund.

Finally, let me again say thanks to all the people who showed up. To me, the best part of this blog is the community that has developed since we started in 2006. It was a lot of fun to meet people in person, talk some baseball and have some laughs. The Yankees have a lot of good folks who root for them and it has been my privilege to meet so many of them.
