We last left off on New York Yankee Fantasy Camp series with me getting my NNY Pinstripes,  once we were suited up we headed off to a fantastic day.  Now we are finally on George M. Steinbrenner Field!  I’d like to think of myself as a writer, but the words escape me as I describe the walk from the locker room through the tunnel and out to the field.  My smile only grew as I felt the wind in the tunnel and then saw the daylight followed by the bright green grass of George M. Steinbrenner Field.

The staff corralled us into groups by team name. Honestly the camp staff did a great job, because the majority of us, especially the rookies were so distracted it was like nailing jello to a wall.  Once they got us into some semblance of order, we were instructed that we would be called up as a team to take our team pictures before we got into the different workout stations.

 

 

The Bambinos all looked awesome!

After we took this picture, we saw that all of the GREATS getting on their wind breakers and sit down where the teams had just taken pictures.  This hadn’t been announced, so I wasn’t sure what they were doing.  I thought that women who had come to camp injured were going to get a special treat and have their pictures taken with all of the Greats since they weren’t going to be able to workout or play.  Yes there were three women that came down to Yankee camp with broken bones, and they were determined to get suited up anyway-who could blame them. They had paid their way and didn’t want to miss a chance to have the experience.

Then I come to find out that each camper gets their own picture with the Greats!!! OMG! How cool is that!

So here’s my official final picture, taken by the great photographers that were at the camp!

Me and the GREATS!

Now there’s a story behind these next series of pictures!  A fellow camper Jo took my i-Phone when it was my turn to sit down and have my picture taken.

Even having pictures taken is an experience when it’s done with the Yankees on Steinbrenner field!!!
