Hey, if you don’t bring a glove, what are you supposed to do? Use your hands? Not bloody likely, at least as far as this fan is concerned who made a pretty nifty grab of a home run ball during the New York Yankees-Colorado Rockies game on Wednesday night at Coors Field.
With one on in the top of 1st inning, Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells uncorked on a Juan Nicasio offering, depositing the ball over the left field fence. That’s when the fan utilizes his cap to secure the prized piece of memorabilia, leaning over the railing and nabbing the ball before it eludes his grasp.
Well done, Cap Man. Better yet, he didn’t even endanger a baby in the process while catching the ball with his hat. That’s a bonus.

BEST OF MAXIM

Back on Wednesday night, the best catch in the realm of Major League Baseball might have a come from a fan in Coors Fielder.
After Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells hit a home run against Rockies pitcher Juan Nicasio, a fan in the left field seats made a great catch of the ball with his hat:

THAT'S NOT VERY NICE
Your browser does not support iframes.Thursday was a milestone day for Yankees second basemen Robinson Cano.Cano legged out an infield single in the third inning to record his 1,500th career hit. In customary fashion, the ball he hit to notch the milestone was removed from play and rolled into the Yankees dugout for a keepsake souvenir.Now, usually these balls are considered sacred...
On Friday, the New York Yankees returned to Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City to face the Royals for the first time since last year when Mariano Rivera suffered a torn ACL while shagging fly balls in the outfield. Rivera's teammates had a friendly prank waiting for him as he returned to the "scene of the crime", with a chalk outline in the spot where he fell and a sign...

No problem?This Colorado Rockies fan made it work Wednesday night when he was able to snag a home run hit by New York Yankees hitter Vernon Wells by using nothing but his hat. The spectacle took place in the thin air of Coors Field.The Yankees went on to win, 3-2, so Wells' blast proved to be crucial.
Wednesday night it paid off to have a former National League Manager of the Year at the helm of the New York Yankees. Girardi, who won the award in 2006 with the Florida Marlins, had to show off some of that National League ingenuity in game two of the interleague matchup with the Colorado Rockies. Before the game even started, Girardi raised some eyebrows with his decision to bat...
I am very proud of my 2-year-old little girl, as she just started to say “Go Yankees” when requested. But this young little lady put my child to shame with her knowledge of New York Yankees greats when her father gives her the numbers: Yeah, so, she got tripped up a couple of times and needed a little reminding, but still incredibly impressive. The average words that an 18-month...
Cano hit his ninth home run of the season en route to a win.
New York Yankees – Colorado Rockies
Rain could not dampen the bat of Robinson Cano in today’s 3-1 win over the Colorado Rockies.
The Yankees sent CC Sabathia to the mound for this rubber game and looked strong in a rain-shortened appearance. The lone run that Sabathia allowed came in the first inning. Right fielder...
Mariano Rivera won't shy away from shagging fly balls on the outfield grass in Kansas City.
The New York Yankees closer plans to return to the very scene of where he tore the ACL in his right knee a year ago when the team plays in Kansas City this weekend. He vows to even chase down fly balls again, just as he always does because he enjoys the camaraderie with teammates during...
The Yankees’ coaches had a good time messing with Robinson Cano after racking up his 1,500th hit on Thursday night. We aren’t sure what they wrote on the ‘fake’ ball but they sure had a good time yucking it up after Cano took a close look at the ball which they had written on. Classic old men joke.

The New York Yankees have a long and storied history filled with a countless number of great players. It would be impossible for anyone, even the most diehard of Yankees fans, to recite them all on cue.Well, not unless you are this 18-month-old girl, who masterfully recites both names and numbers of some of the greatest Yankees in history. She has a little help from her parents,...
More good news on the injury front for the New York Yankees: Curtis Granderson is getting closer to coming off the disabled list. Granderson, who fractured his forearm during spring training, is set to start a rehab assignment in the minors today. Rehab assignments are generally the last hurdle a player has to clear before being added back to the active roster.
Curtis Granderson delivered a base hit in his first rehab game on Friday and is now able to play a full nine innings. Granderson has been out since early in Spring Training when he broke his arm on a pitch from J.A. Happ, but appears to be ready to return to the Yankees’ outfield, most likely to left field.
Granderson played his first rehab game with the with the Scranton/Wilkes...
There is nothing better than baseball, beer and brawls only this one occurred in the stands at a New York Yankees game. An argument amongst female fans turns ugly as the aggressor gets drop kicked sending her flying backwards over the seats. Just a regular hair pulling, beer throwing day in the Bronx.

On Wednesday night, Joe Girardi batted David Phelps eighth in the lineup ahead of rookie Austin Romine. The part I have never seen the Yankees do in any World Series game or interleague matchup was the pitcher batting ahead of the catcher.
Of course, it’s not unprecedented, and that drew the ire of some critics. Tony LaRussa made a living on batting the pitcher eighth and many...
