Good morning my fellow Fackers.
It's big day for our team, as they'll spend their off day in our nation's capital. While the big story of the trip will be the feting of the team at the White House's South Portico, or more likely the East Room should the weather forecast prove true, that will be just a small portion of the Yankees' doings during their time in the greater D.C. area this week.
The Yankees' day will begin long before their 3 PM appointment at the White House. Earlier in the day, a host of players, coaches, and front office personnel will bring the World Series trophy on a tour of Walter Reed Medical Center and the Malone House, visiting wounded veterans.
On Tuesday, club officials will bring the trophy on a tour of Washington, including a visit with the Bronx's own Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
At Camden Yards Tuesday evening, the Yankees will host twenty wounded veterans from Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval Hospital. The following day, select players will bring the trophy to Bethesda Naval Hospital for a visit. The trophy's tour of D.C. will conclude with a Wednesday lunch at the Pentagon.
Full details are available in the Yankees' official press release.
Thank you. And God bless the Yankee Universe.
