Today’s Yankees batting practice was a giant 1998 reunion here at Steinbrenner Field. Tino Martinez was on the field as the Marlins new hitting coach, Paul O’Neill was there with YES Network, and Jorge Posada had returned as a guest instructor with David Wells.

In fact, if you pick and choose the right dates, there were more players on the field from the 1998 Yankees lineup than from the 2012 Yankees lineup.
