Before the season begins with the Red Sox on April 1 at the big ballpark in the Bronx, the Yankees will play an exhibition game at the United States Miitary Academy in West Point N.Y.
Major League Baseball announced the Yankees and Army will play a 2 p.m. ET contest on March 30; no other details have been released yet.
According to Yanks beat writer Bryan Hoch, the Yankees also traveled to West Point for exhibition games back when Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth were still playing.

A day before they head to West Point, the Yanks will get a good look at Rafael Soriano in a Nationals uniform, as they play the Nats in D.C. for a preseason tuneup.
