Back in 1987, Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Bell refused to talk to the beat writers who surrounded his locker after the game because Suzyn Waldman present. At the time, women had just started to get locker room access. Bell started screaming at her as she approached his locker. Enter Barfield.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned so far this season…it’s that the Yankees offense can make anyone want to drink. In the bottom of the 7th inning of Thursday night’s game against the Blue Jays, Jimmy Fallon chugged a beer in front of Lorne Michaels in the Legends seats. The man was thirsty!

I can’t count how many times I watched ‘The Sandlot’ as a child. Whatever number it was, it was an unhealthy one. With some time to burn in spring training, some players on the Yankees roster re-enacted the classic scene in the movie when Smalls realizes the ball he handed over to “The Beast” was autographed by the greatest ballplayer who ever lived, Babe Ruth (and not some wimpy deer). The video stars: Dellin Betances, Brian McCann, CC Sabathia, Brett Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury. McCann deserves an Oscar nomination for playing Ham Porter.

Derek Jeter dons the latest cover of Sports Illustrated. Say what you want…that this whole “Jeter Farewell Tour” is over the top…”it’s excessive”…blah blah blah. It’s for the fans. It’s not for the media and it’s not for everyone. I get it. Let us Yankees fans enjoy it.
Tom Verducci writes the cover story, “Jeter on Jeter”: The Exit Interview. Be sure to pick up a copy, or maybe 100.

This new Derek Jeter commercial is set to air tonight during the MLB All-Star Game tonight. Much like last year’s Rivera tribute, tonight will be more like a “Derek Jeter Special” than an all-star game. All eyes on Derek.

Michael Jordan’s brand and Nike and have teamed up to launch the “RE2PECT” campaign in honor of Derek’s last season.
“After 19 seasons, Derek Jeter announced in February that the 2014 season will be his last. Widely recognized as one of the greatest ball players of all time, Jeter has led a storied and decorated career, with five championships, 13 All-Star appearances and enough individual awards to fill numerous trophy cases.
Although Jeter has become synonymous with his team over the past two decades, he transcends traditional rivalries and team loyalties. While No. 2 is known for his brilliant on-field performances, he’s always matched that with a quiet confidence, relentless focus, and deep respect for those he competes against.To celebrate Jeter, the mark he’s left on the game, and his relationship with the brand, the Jordan Brand kicks off the RE2PECT campaign. Baseball fans around the world can participate and share their support for Jeter throughout the season by tagging social media posts with #RE2PECT.
Jeter—handpicked by Michael Jordan in 1999—was the first Jordan Brand-endorsed baseball athlete. Outside of Jordan himself, Jeter is the longest-tenured signature athlete for the brand, and has been a great example to subsequent members of the Jordan Brand family.
“Derek is everything we hope for in a member of the Jordan Brand family,” said Jordan. “He’s the ultimate professional, dedicated to hard work, and driven by a desire to be the best. In short, he embodies all the key attributes of the brand.”
At the beginning of the partnership, Jeter was a rising star, and the Jordan Brand, which became a wholly owned subsidiary of Nike in 1997, was on a similar trajectory to establish itself as a major player in the world of sport. There were only a small handful of athletes associated with the brand, and Jordan stressed that his vision was to select a group of athletes comprising what the brand now describes as “the family.”
“We want there to be a mystique connected to being part of the Jordan Brand,”Jordan said. “Not something everybody will be involved with.”Today, although the family has grown, it maintains the same close-knit feeling Jordan envisioned when the brand was in its early days.”
