Yankees recreate famous scene from “The Sandlot”

While we no longer have Mark Teixeira‘s talk show “Foul Territory” to entertain us, that’s not stopping the Yankees from giving the fans a few laughs right before the season begins.

Brett Gardner, Jacoby Ellsbury, CC Sabathia, Brian McCann, Didi Gregorius and an ensemble of Yankees reenacted one of the most famous scenes from “The Sandlot”, where Smalls ends up playing with a signed Babe Ruth ball and is scolded by his teammates for doing so. (Warning, you should never play with a signed Babe Ruth ball and then ask who is “she”. It won’t work in your favor). By the way, Brett Gardner plays a very comical Smalls and the Yankees made a great casting choice having Brian McCann play Hamilton ‘Ham’ Porter. If you haven’t seen it yet, the video is above and I also linked the original scene from the movie.

Some Notes:

— It seems the Yankees have eliminated CC Sabathia from the Opening Day competition since his next start is on Saturday. Sabathia could start on Opening Day if he went on short rest, but given the Yankees are taking it slow with him, it’s unlikely. Here are the starters for the next few games:

Tonight: Esmil Rogers
Tomorrow: Masahiro Tanaka
Thursday: Adam Warren
Friday: Michael Pineda
Saturday: CC Sabathia
Sunday: Nathan Eovaldi

— Jacoby Ellsbury has started doing outfield sprints and according to Joe Girardi, Ellsbury is “progressing great”.

— Nathan Eovaldi pitched at the minor league complex earlier this afternoon. He went five innings and hit 94 MPH on the radar gun with his fastball.

  1. That was cringe worthy.

    McCann looks like Ham

      If he doesn't make the rotation, he's going in the pen. He's not pitching himself out of anything except the fifth starter competition.

    He sucks and has sucked for his entire career…he going going…just not gone yet!
