Two quick notes

Just a heads up on a two things…

1. It’s not a cheap ticket, but Dave Robertson and Nick Swisher are hosting Yankees Unite for Tornado Relief on Monday’s off day. I talked to Dave and his wife, Erin, about it when Dave served drinks for the charity earlier this season. They’re both genuinely excited about it, and it really sounds like an incredible event. If you have the cash, it could be a great experience for a great cause.

2. Derek Jeter has donated the helmet and batting gloves he wore for career hit No. 3,000 to the Baseball Hall of Fame. They’ll be on display in about two weeks. “(Jeter) has a long history of being incredibly generous to the Museum, which in turn, has allowed all baseball fans to realize the profound impact he has had on our National Pastime for the last 16 years.” Jeff Idelson, president of the Hall of Fame, said in a statement. “He’s a great representative of the Yankees and baseball, and it’s an honor to preserve his accomplishments in Cooperstown in perpetuity.”
