NEW YORK, NY
The Yankees returned home and at first-pitch, the temperature was near 100 degrees in Yankee Stadium. The heat was turned up even higher as the Yankees had 17 hits and 17 runs topping the Oakland Athletics 17 – 7. Featuring a 9-run third inning, the Yankees skipped BP and saved their energy for this offensive show. Yankee Brandon Laird had his first major league hit (yes, batting 1.000), and now can catch Derek Jeter with 3010 more Yankee hits. Nick Swisher had 5 RBI’s too. Interesting Traveler Notes: Mike from California (below on far left) is traveling with 11 friends including sons and grandsons for a great baseball experience. Jerry (below on far right) is also traveling with son and grandsons.
Did I mention the great start the group had at Mickey Mantle’s Restaurant! Saturday – The village of Cooperstown, NY. An amazing place to go, and we will be there!
