Prince Harry has been in the US for a week-long tour, and the 28-year-old member of England’s Royal Family showed off his baseball swing during a visit to Harlem RBI on Tuesday.

Prince Harry made the visit as part of the new partnership between The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Harlem RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities), MLB.com reports. He met with several young kids, provided some instruction, and took a few cuts on Harlem RBI’s “Field of Dreams.”

After doing some drills with New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, who is a board member for Harlem RBI, Prince Harry took three swings on the field. The natural even put one off the fence. Not bad for someone who probably has never swung a baseball bat before.

Hey, Joba ‘the Hut’, keep your mouth shut

For those of you who haven’t already heard the news, Yankees relief pitcher Joba Chamberlain told Yankees closer Mariano Rivera to never “shush” him again. The remark came in the middle of an interview Mo was having with some of the media after Friday’s game against the Kansas City Royals. Chamberlain apparently got so loud, that Mo had to tell him to keep his voice down...

Today, the Grandy Man lands. Which will it be? The one who can take a rainbow, wrap it in a sigh, soak it in the sun and make a groovy lemon pie? Or the one who strikes out twice a game?

Today, something will happen I never again expected to see:Curtis Granderson will rejoin the Yankees. I thought we'd trade him. Frankly, I hoped we would. Not that he's a villain. Grandy remains a solid world citizen - a good-deed-doer and role model to all. He plays fine defense and hits many HRs. It's just my lingering memory -- Curtis, trudging to the dugout, bat...

Yankees win in Curtis Granderson's return

Yesterday marked what could be the first step in the Yankees transforming from the surprising underdog to the dominant force we've come to know.  Curtis Granderson made his return to the lineup after missing 38 games with a fractured forearm.  The Yankees' outfielder was inserted into the lineup as the starting left fielder. While Granderson may have gone hitless in...

Yanks get shutout, split double dip

There wasn't enough time for the Yankees to tour the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or do much else on their short layover before going home.

Vidal Nuno pitched five innings of three-hit ball to win his first major league start and...

Yankees rally, defeat Mariners

Once Felix Hernandez tweaked his back, the whole game took an odd twist.

Yankees continuing winning tradition

A few days ago, I mentioned to former Nick Swisher that I had picked his former Yankees teammates to finish last in the American League East. He smiled and shook his head.

The Absurdities of Batter/Pitcher Match-Up Numbers

With all due respect to the Dillon Gee-John Gast match-up in St. Louis tonight, there’s one marquee pitching match-up on the schedule for tonight’s games: Felix Hernandez vs CC Sabathia in New York. Neither pitcher throws as hard as they used to, but they’ve both managed to adapt to life without their fastest fastball, and both remain among the best starting pitchers on earth...
