Yankees baseball is woven into the rhythm of life for me. Even during Spring Training, I record the day games and watch them after work. Of course, during the regular season, watching the Yankees is a daily routine. What can I say, I’m a Yankees baseball freak.
I want to watch 162 games, or as close to that as I can get, from beginning to end without interruption. Am I crazy? Are most baseball fans?
Yankees fans are a special sort of crazy because they have more media, more coverage of their favorite players than many other teams in the league. However, all that has stopped in the wake of the coronavirus.
I was cheered by the news from George King III, of NYPost.com that these players were still in Tampa working out at the Yankees facility: DJ LeMahieu, Aaron Judge, Tyler Wade, Clint Frazier and Mike Ford. For a fleeting moment it seemed like news.
More positive news from Aaron Judge who told reporters that his collapsed lung had healed, which was stunning news because no one had suspected that besides a fractured rib, he had a collapsed lung.
Yankee fans just need to be patient until the coronavirus runs its course and baseball returns. My prediction for the return of baseball is July 15th. Ironic, baseball starts when the All Star Game would have provided a break.
