Hello from somewhere high above northern America.
I’m on my way to California for the General Managers Meetings, which start tomorrow. I had enough time to vote this morning, and because I work for a newspaper, I’m basically guaranteed non-stop election coverage emails for the next eight hours or so. I actually enjoy election night, so I’m thankful that this flight has satelite television.
But not everyone is heading West for the week.
Joe Girardi and CC Sabathia will greet fans who donate items for Hurricane Sandy relief on Wednesday at Yankee Stadium’s Gate 2. That’s the one at 164th Street and Jerome Avenue. Girardi will there from 11 a.m. to noon, and Sabathia will help with donations from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The Yankees will continue to take and distribute donation through the end of the week. The Gate 2 entrance will be staffed 24 hours a day (though no always by a member of the team).
If you’re able to stop by the stadium tomorrow and help out, here are the basic details:
WHO: YANKEES MANAGER JOE GIRARDI AND YANKEES PITCHER CC SABATHIA
WHAT: COLLECTION OF DONATIONS FOR HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF EFFORT
WHERE: GATE 2 AT YANKEE STADIUM
WHEN: WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7
GIRARDI WILL GREET FANS WHO DONATE ITEMS FROM 11:00 a.m. TO NOON
