Our long national nightmare is over. Baseball is back. Well, sort of anyway. Any game where the #3 hitter struck out against a pitching machine can't be taken too seriously. Nonetheless, it's the Yankees' spring training opener!
This is a road game at Bright House Field, the Phillies' spring training complex in Clearwater. It will begin at 1:05, and if you have MLB.tv or live in the Philadelphia area (my condolences it's if the latter), then you can watch it on Comcast Sports Philly. The game is also available on radio at 1210 WPHT in Philly (or Gameday Audio). The lineups are below, and you can see who the Yankees are planning on bringing in later in the game thanks to the official Twitter account link below the lineups. The main attraction for me will definitely be Luis Severino taking the mound in relief of Adam Warren. Check out how stoked he is:
Severino just told me he is very excited for his Yankees spring debut; actually slept holding a ball in his hand last night— Marly~ESPN Deportes (@MarlyRiveraESPN) March 3, 2015
Amazing. Play ball!
