Checking in on Andy PhillipsBy
Now that we’re out of that time warp, I offer you this Tyler Kepner article on former Yankee Andy Phillips. Phillips, 34, is currently coaching at the University of Alabama, and he grew up in the recently tornado-devastated Tuscaloosa. “There’s almost a mile-wide path the tornado went through,” said Phillips. “They said you could literally stand a mile and a half away from [the stadium], where there used to be homes and buildings in between, and now there’s nothing.” Phillips and his family are safe, but some of his players lost everything. David Robertson, another Tuscaloosa native, said his family and house are safe as well.
