Several Players Help Promote Yankees Hope Week on “TODAY”
Posted August 16, 2010on:
Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez, P CC Sabathia and RF Nick Swisher appeared on NBC’s “Today” this morning to promote the team’s second Yankees Hope Week. Sabathia said the team received 1,000 applicants for Hope Week this year, and “we’re only doing five, so we hope that people will go out and see the stories and get out in the community.” NBC’s Matt Lauer: “One of the other nice things is this is something that the Yankees organization is taking part in from top to bottom. It’s not just a couple of players out there.” Swisher: “It branches from the Steinbrenner family all the way down to the grounds crew” (“Today,” NBC, 8/16).
