Also mark your calendar because in exactly 10 days from today, the Yankees will have their first game on television against the Philadelphia Phillies!
Now, I’m holding the first Yankees Mailbag of the 2017 season this Friday. If you want to send in a question, just leave your name and your question on this contact form and I’ll be sure to include it.
