The Yankees will end Spring Training with a one-game exhibition against the Nationals in Nationals Park, the team announced. The game will be played on Friday, March 29th at 2pm ET. The regular season begins two days later on April 1st.
These end-of-camp exhibition games are nothing new. The Yankees played a pair of games at the Marlins’ new building last March, and back in 2009 the Cubs came to Yankee Stadium for two games before the season opener. The Yankees swept a three-game series in the nation’s capital last season, and I know a lot of RAB readers were on hand for that one. I don’t know when tickets will be on sale, but it should be pretty soon. I’m sure the Washington faithful will appreciate getting one last chance to say goodbye to Mike Morse, amirite?
