Fireworks start brush fire at New York Yankees AAA stadium

  • David Whitlock

As if things couldn’t have started worse for the New York Yankees, in addition to losing 2 of 3 to the Boston Red Sox to start the season, the Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders have lost their first three games to the Boston Red Sox AAA Pawtucket squad and after tonight’s game, a significant grass fire was started after postgame fireworks outside PNC Stadium.  New York Yankees minor league beat writer Nicole Sorce in a series of tweets (including photos):

 

 

 

 

Her last tweet could not have summed it up better (as the big league New York Yankees have lost 2 more and are in the cellar of the AL East at 1-4)

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
