Yankees Strike Deal with Fan Who Caught Alex Rodriguez’s 3,000th Hit

When New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez launched a home run into the seats at Yankee Stadium for his 3,000th career hit in June, it seemed as though he would never get the ball back, but the dynamic changed Friday, as the Yanks negotiated a deal with the fan who caught it. According to the Yankees' official Twitter account, Zack Hample, who is well-known for his pursuit of souvenir baseballs, has agreed to present A-Rod with the ball Friday in exchange for a $150,000 donation to the Pitch In for Baseball ...

Alex Rodriguez, Yankees Settle Dispute Regarding HR Milestone Contract Bonuses

Yankees Must Roll the Dice on Top Pitching Prospect Luis Severino

Times have changed for the New York Yankees. They can no longer bully with their bank account—or at least they are opting not to—because too many other teams have money these days. They cannot rely on the trade market to find their missing pieces because they are missing too many. And in their new age of not wanting to throw around money and choosing to grow their own players, they should not empty their farm system in order to acquire major league talent. The Yankees are in the playoff race, though. That ...

Johnny Cueto Splash Is Missing Piece to Yankees’ Playoff Run

If you've ever wondered what Johnny Cueto would look like in pinstripes, you're not alone. The New York Yankees were curious enough to send a scout to watch the Cincinnati Reds ace pitch recently, per George A. King III of the New York Post.

Key Takeaways from New York Yankees’ Season so Far

Thanks to Alex Rodriguez, life for the New York Yankees after Derek Jeter may not be so bad after all. The 39-year-old Rodriguez, who has undergone two hip surgeries and missed the entire 2014 season due to a suspension for his use of performance-enhancing drugs, has become the least likely hero in New York.   "To be quite honest, a year ago today I didn't know this day would ever come," Rodriguez told USA Today after recording his 3,000th hit.

A-Rod Paints Contrasting Picture in Mirroring Derek Jeter’s 3,000-Hit Moment

NEW YORK — Four years ago, it was easy to know what to think. It was easy to know how to feel. Derek Jeter got to 3,000 hits in the most Derek Jeter of ways, and it wasn't just Yankees fans who celebrated. Even now, four years later, the pitcher who gave up Jeter's 3,000th hit can talk about how "special" that day was. "I still have no regrets," David Price said Friday, just a couple of hours before the 28th member of the 3,000-hit club (Jeter) was joined by the 29th member (Alex ...
