My Yankee Effort

The New York Yankees played an exhibition match with the Virginia Tech Hokies in Blacksburg earlier today in commemorative to the Virginia Tech Massacre last year. I thought it was a classy move by Major League Baseball in giving what is a small gesture to the community compared to what happened there. 

I'm sure my friends, Jon and Jenny, are sure experiencing the hoopla there today. I've been to Blacksburg a few times prior to the shootings last year and it's a very, very small town. I'm sure having "celebrities" such as Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez and Andy Pettitte visit the town and play their beloved Hokies was a neat experience. (ESPN)
