An emotional day for baseball


Don’t tell the Virginia Tech baseball team that Spring Training doesn’t count. For a few hours today, the VT campus, still healing after last year’s tragic shooting, will play host to the Yankees and both the VT players, as Sam Borden writes, and the Yankees, as Anthony McCarron notes, understand and appreciate the emotional impact of this seven-inning exhibition game. The Yanks’ presence at VT today is one of the more generous acts I’ve seen from the team in all my years as a fan.

    Plus the Yankee family, (and that includes every one of us,who support the team through thick and thin )donated 1 million dollars to facilitate the healing.Gee, not too many people criticize the Yanks as being ‘heavy handed with all their millions’,when ,as they so often do,put their money where their mouth is when it comes to a real world tragedy.

    Just as an FYI. This game will be transmitted for free on MLB TV. I’m going to try my best to catch it.
