The holiday season is winding down and a new year approaches. It’s that time when our collective attention shifts to spring training. Before we pack away the decorations and presents, however, it’s fun to check in on how the Yankees spent the holidays. Pour one last cup of eggnog and pull up a seat by the fireplace. It’s time to pay a holiday visit to the Yankees.

Didi Gregorius

#SantaRun at Port of Curacao with the Crew...

The Yankees shortstop took part in the second annual Curacao Santa Run on Friday, December 23rd. Gregorius ran the three kilometer course in full Santa Claus attire. He then spent the next 24 hours traveling in a flying open sleigh, delivering toys to children around the world. Talented young man, he is.

CC Sabathia

The veteran southpaw linked to his family’s video holiday card on Instagram. The movie theater design is pretty incredible. Sabathia also spent the holiday season appearing at various charity events. His PitCCh In Foundation threw its seventh annual holiday party in support of the Madison Square Boys and Girls Club.

This isn’t the finished Sanchez holiday card, although that’s also on his Instagram page. I’m mostly here for the caption. #IamGary is also #IamDaddy.

Luis Cessa

Rookie pitcher turned World Series TV analyst looked as sharp as always this Christmas. He spent the holiday with family, and from the looks of it, he has quite the collection of presents.

Brett Gardner

Gardner and his wife Jessica have been known for their charity work in South Carolina. They continued their philanthropic ways this holiday season. The Yankees left fielder donated his time at the Medical University of South Carolina Children’s Hospital. Keep up the great work, Brett.

Jorge Posada

A night to remember for more than one reason! ❤️ #saturdaynight #holidayparty #party #fiesta #friends

Bonus #1: Former Yankee Jorge Posada donned quite the outfit at this holiday party. I like to imagine that he was visited by three Christmas ghosts the night before this picture was taken. May he keep the holiday spirit all year long.

Alex Rodriguez

Bonus #2: There’s no way to celebrate the holidays without A-Rod, right? He decorated the Christmas tree with his daughters. He’s a real family man. He also traded in the Santa hat for an A-Rod Corp hat. Now that’s the gift that keeps on giving.

The holidays are about spending time with friends and family. As fans, we spend so much time watching the Yankees, it almost seems like they’re a part of our own families. That’s why it’s fun to look into their holiday festivities. There’s plenty of time to debate the offseason moves as spring training approaches. For now, we hope that you had a happy holiday season and a prosperous new year.
