Today's game is the Yankees spring training home opener, and it's also the first televised game! I don't know about you, but it's been far too long since I've seen live baseball.
David Phelps is set to take the mound against the Pirates, facing off against Charlie Morton. Derek Jeter will be making his (last ever) spring training debut, and it should be the healthiest we've seen him in at least a year and a half, so that's exciting. He should be in the game for four or five innings.
The game starts at 1:05 PM, and will be available on YES, MLB Network and MLB.tv (for free!), so you can finally watch Yankee baseball and join us in the comments below.
