A New York Yankees blog by Chad Jennings and the staff of The Journal News


‘Tis the season

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Dec 23, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

I first mentioned this idea last March, and I’ll probably mention it again as we get closer to the Grapefruit League schedule. But this holiday season also seems like a good time to mention it.

Two springs ago, a reader of this blog named Mike donated extra Yankees spring training tickets to Big Brothers and Sisters of Tampa Bay. Afterward, he got an email that read, in part…

Scott and I really appreciate the generosity of the individual donating those tickets. Scott loves sports but I don’t think he knew how packed that game was going to be until we got there. I think that was the spring training game of the year.

Mike has suggested similar donations from other Yankees fans who end up with extra spring tickets (or from Yankees fans who feel like donating a gift to a worthy cause this time of year). He asked that anyone interested email him — mike@classiccards.com — and he’ll put you in touch with his contact with Big Brothers and Sisters.

You can buy spring training tickets online right now.

    Thanks Chad. Sometimes the problems in the world feel so enormous that we forget that we don’t have to do something monumental in order to make a difference in someone’s life. Small kindnesses can definitely have a ripple effect (and can turn into life-changing events without our ever knowing it).

    Trisha, I thought when you started out, you were doing your Rick Blaine talking to Illsa standing in the fog on the tarnac in Casablanca.

    GB7,
    Exactly what kind of animal is Killer?

  7. GreenBeret7 December 23rd, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    “Killer” is all animal. “Killer” is a registered German Shephard. e’s also the most inappropriately named dog in the world. The only way he could kill anybody is lick ‘em to death. He’s all me though. Has a fondness for beer and pizza.

    you are too far away geographically to appreciate how far that team has fallen and how bad things really are. I depend on you guys on the west coast to give me information on west coast teams because I know you have a much better pulse on them than we do out here, simply because you are around them geographically and see them up close and personal.

    Unless you are sitting in the clubhouse, I don’t think your geographic proximity means anything.

    Hating the Red Sox is a Yankee fan tradition, but you shouldn’t underestimate your opponent. The Red Sox have some problems but are still a good team.

    Hope you realize that you are responding to someone who is a passionate Yankee fan, but knows absolutely nothing about baseball other than blind faith. Good luck.

    The Yankees considered pursuing Carlos Beltran earlier this offseason according to Bob Klapisch of The Bergen Record (on Twitter), but ultimately decided against it because of his balky knees.
