George Steinbrenner's daughter had a tough day in pinstripes.
Jennifer Steinbrenner Swindal hurt her leg running out an infield grounder Friday and had to leave the first game of the New York Yankees' fantasy camp for women.
The Yankees vice chair was injured during her first at-bat at the team's spring training complex. The main field at the site is named for her late father, the former owner of the Yankees.
Swindal was hurt in the third inning. After getting treatment on her right leg, she returned to the dugout to watch the final inning.
Swindal wore No. 4 and played on a team coached by former major league pitcher Al Downing. She took part in two-plus hours of on-field drills before the game with her teammates.

The Yankees made major waves in the baseball world tonight with a big time trade and free agent acquisition. The trade, which sent top Yankee prospect and expected starting DH Jesus Montero and big leaguer Hecter Noesi to the Seattle Mariners for stud pitcher Michael Pineda and prospect Jose Campo, really makes both teams better and turns the Yankees into potentially the class of...
NWSB insider Brandon Choate brings us a good read in the wake of a big trade by the Seattle Mariners. In acquiring catcher Jesus Montero from the Yankees, the Mariners can count on Montero's youth, his bat and his potential to lure in free agents. Yes Seattle will miss Michael Pineda, but they'll like Montero's bat much more.
The D-backs are reportedly in talks with right-hander Bartolo Colon, who went 8-10 with a 4.00 for the Yankees last season.
The trade between the Yankees and Mariners looks to me like a way for each team to fill a critical need for the long term rather than the short, with ...
