Tweet [1]

The Yankees have added an additional exhibition game to their spring schedule.

Two days after the end of the Grapefruit League schedule, and one day after playing an exhibition in Washington D.C., the Yankees will travel to West Point for a March 30 game against the Army Black Knights. The game was announced by Major League Baseball and further details are expected from the Yankees.

Pitchers and catchers report to Yankees camp on February 12. The first Grapefruit League game will be February 23 against the Braves, and the last Grapefruit League game will be March 28 against the Pirates. The Yankees will play an exhibition against the Nationals in Washington D.C. on March 29, then they’ll go to West Point on March 30, leaving one off days before¬†Opening Day¬†on April 1.

Bryan Hoch notes that the Yankees played exhibition games at West Point [2]as far back as the Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig era.
