Why Doesn't My Job Having Spring Training In Florida?

Working life sucks. No summer vacations, no snow days (not since I've been in NYC, anyway), no recess, gym class, snack time or carpet-square-naps. Youth is wasted on the young.

I was browsing through the LIFE Photo Archive on Google Images and turned up a few good old school Yankees Spring Training pictures from when they were still in St. Petersburg and Ft. Lauderdale. Here are a few for now. We've still got 49 days left until opening day so I don't want to blow my whole stash.

Yogi Berra reading his own book

Mickey Mantle taking in some fresh air

Whitey Ford... trying to pull a pole out of the ground?
Not too sure about that one.

No guarantees about the amount of content today. There's no way of knowing, but I don't think these gentlemen would approve of blogging on a Federal Holiday.
