Baseball is finally back! We have kept you up to date with what the Yankees have been up to on social media ever since baseball shutdown back in March. Although the season is underway, we’ll still provide weekly updates on what your favorite Yankees do in their free time!

Aaron Boone

The Yankees’ skipper had a surprise visitor in his office this past week. The Oris Bear decided to stop by and say hello. For those of you that don’t know, Oris SA is a Swiss luxury manufacturer of mechanical watches, and it seems that their “mascot” is a big fan of the Bombers.

Suzyn Waldman

Since 2005, Suzyn has been the color commentator for Yankees, working alongside John Sterling on radio broadcasts. Many years ago, when Gerrit Cole was just entering the league, Waldman approached Cole and said, “You’re going to make a great Yankee when you get to be a free agent.” Cole responded by saying, “If I do, you have to sing the national anthem on Opening Day.”

Well, many years later, here we are. Cole signed with the Yankees and Suzyn performed The Star-Spangled Banner during the Yankees’ home opener. Great job, Suzyn.

CC Sabathia

Speaking of the home opener, the newly retired Yankee threw out the first pitch in the Bronx, and Gerrit Cole was behind the plate to receive it. Now, we have seen Sabathia throw some better pitches than that, but let’s cut him some slack, he recently underwent surgery to repair his shoulder that he injured on the last game of his career. He even made sure to let us know not to give him any hate in the comments.


But regardless, he looks really fit and has been in the gym often since calling it a career.

Miguel Andujar

This past week, Jose Reyes retired after 16 seasons in the bigs. Miguel Andujar took to social media to wish Jose the best of luck in the next chapter of his life.


That’s all the updates we have for you this week. Check back next week to see more of what the Yankees are doing during their free time!
