The Yankees won their spring training opener on Friday with a 3-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers. This was new manager Aaron Boone’s first victory. “It’s always fun to shake hands [after a victory].” Boone said in his office after the games. “But I think for the first day we did a lot of things well.” The Yankees followed up this win with a 4-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday. Since some of the projected starters haven’t played yet, both games were a chance for the teams prospects and players looking for spots on the major league lineup to showcase their skills. We wait eagerly to see how the team will progress during the rest of spring training and onto the official baseball season!
