Rather than go with the traditional routine of warming up with a teammate between innings on Monday night, Yankees outfielder Andruw Jones decided to have a catch with a fan. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a player do this, but I’m surprised we don’t see it more often. It seems like a simple enough way to improve the fan experience without players having to put much effort into it at all.
I guess you could be concerned that a fan would just keep the ball and you wouldn’t get to finish your warmup, but if a Rangers fan cooperates with a Yankees players it seems like a safe move. Pat on the back to Andruw for making someone’s night.Google+
