Today is photo day, which means a series of cameras and flashes setup just outside both dugouts here at Steinbrenner Field. The players take turns with a variety of shots: some sitting, some standing, some with a bat, some with a glove, some in a baseball pose, some like an elementary school headshot.
It’s all very exciting.
While that’s happening on the main field, the bulk of the Yankees coaching staff is on the back field watching live batting practice.
Joba Chamberlain has already pitched. David Phelps is going now, and Phil Hughes is getting loose in left field. Word is that Andrew Brackman is also scheduled to face hitters this morning. I believe this will be Brackman’s third live BP of the spring. It will be Hughes’ first.
