TCD Live From Yankee Stadium

For the first time, the New York Yankees have issued a press pass to a website other than will be live from the big ballpark in the Bronx, and have already interviewed Denard Span and Kevin Slowey.

BRONX, NY- In an unprecedented move, the New York Yankees have credentialed a website. That website is After completing a few interviews and checking out the stadium, here are a few things that have caught my eye.

  • The big ballpark is beautiful, and the Visitor's clubhouse is very impressive. It is a major upgrade from the digs at the old stadium.

  • Denard Span is not only a great player, but a great person. He sat down with us before the game, and had plenty of things to say. That story will follow.

  • Kevin Slowey also sat down with us prior to the game, and it is nice to see a kid who came up in the system do so well at the big league level. He really is going to be special.

  • This team likes to have fun. Coming off three consecutive walk-off losses, you would think that they would be done. A number of players told me that a loss is a loss, and that you cannot let it get too much of you. A bunch of guys were joking around in the clubhouse, and they looked very loose.

  • Joba Chamberlain can hit for a pitcher. I saw him put a few up against the fence, and one even left the yard. A.J. Burnett did not fare as well.

  • Bert Blyleven balked on taking the elevator, and instead, the should-be Hall of Famer decided to take the stairs.

  • The Sheppard Dining Hall was serving Duck. Which is a huge upgrade for a minor league writer used to eating hot dogs or subs at AA or AAA stadiums.
