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.

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...

While Granderson may have gone hitless in...

Yanks get shutout, split double dip

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. Robinson Cano hit a two-run double, Lyle Overbay delivered a tiebreaking sacrifice fly and the New York Yankees rallied in the seventh inning after King Felix was forced to make an early exit, beating Seattle 4-3 Tuesday night. ''It was hard luck,'' Hernandez said. The Mariners' ace was...

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
