Good morning from Steinbrenner (I still call it Legends sometimes) Field. Always nice to be back, particularly when it’s in the high 60s on the way to (supposedly) another 80 degree day. I can’t say I was sad to bid farewell to the still-four-foot high snowdrift outside my house.
The Yankees clubhouse opens shortly but CC Sabathia is out on the main field already. Sabathia is throwing live batting practice (from behind the pitcher’s screen) with a large crew watching including Joe Girardi, Yogi Berra and Larry Rothschild.
Sabathia, you’ll recall, is scheduled to make his spring debut in Monday’s game.
