Photo Day is one of the rights of spring training in Major League Baseball. Players are all dressed up in brand new home uniforms and the media gets to take some cool images. Last week, Getty Images photographer Mike Ehrmann got some pretty mean faces from a determined 2023 New York Yankees squad. Check them out!
Starting in early September last season, his name, rather his bat was noticeably absent from the New York Yankees lineup. The last two years have not been vintage seasons for DJ LeMahieu, however being a two-time batting champion creates some pretty high standards. Injuries to the 2022 Gold Glove- Utility Player's big toe and second toe, hampered LeMahieu for the better part of the '22 season.
Tuesday night, when Corey Youmans sat down in his left field seats at Globe Life Field in Section 31, Row 1, Seat 3, he may have dreamed that he could snag a valuable piece of history. Well, dreams come true and the baseball that Youmans caught in his glove is already worth $2 million. That number may get higher.
Since the turn of the century, there have been some constants in New York sports. The Yankees are most likely to be pretty good and make the playoffs. The Giants will win a Super Bowl every decade or so. The Mets are bad, ok, good and then will collapse and now seem really good. The Jets are terrible and yes, they won on Sunday but have a long way to go before that classification is lifted. I will provide Robert Saleh a receipt for that statement for his files.
