The Yankees have passed along some comments and a picture from today’s team bonding event at Tampa Improv.
“I got one quote for you,” Nick Swisher said. “Mark Teixeira, MVP. That’s all I can say. I wish I could give you more, but I can’t.”
Apparently Swisher isn’t the only one who saw it that way.
“I saw Tex today in a way that I could have never imagined,” Ivan Nova said. “You should have seen him. I couldn’t stop smiling. It made me think about how we come from so many different places to become teammates and friends.”
SWISHER: “It’s always awesome. I think skip does such a great job of stressing that word camaraderie. Of stressing that word team. I feel that when you do things away from the ballpark together, I think that brings you closer. And with as much fun as we all have together, it’s rare that you can get everybody together in a comfortable environment… (The team played) different games, like trying to answer a question as a team of two, using one word back and forth. I-Went-To-The-Mall. Something like that. Just improv stuff. And we had some pros there that were awesome, and just so happy that those guys would include us in something like that, because obviously those guys are professionals. And just for us to come out there and act like little kids again, that’s right up my alley.”
NOVA: “Days like today give me the confidence to open up with my teammates and to have fun. It makes our friendships stronger. You get a chance to learn more about each other without having to talk about baseball.”
