How much would you guys pay to be able to do this? What pitcher would you choose to face and what team would you play for (only one at-bat)?

I rather see him play an exhibition game for the NY Giants instead...

I guess I'm still bitter because I never found out whether they found Curly's gold or not. :,-(

Crystal can't handle the inside pitches. Once this gets around his career will be all but over.

Thanks for the vid, kimchi

What a lucky bastard, I would definitely have to frame the box score with my name at the top of the lineup sheet.

I don't know how much I'd pay for one spring training at bat in pinstripes but if you're going to do it, I'd have to say that as much as I hate the Yanks it would still be cool to wear the pinstripes. My opposing pitcher of choice would be anyone that can throw a 99 mph fastball. I'd hate to face a good curveball pitcher because I'd probably bail out of the batter's box thinking the ball was going to hit me in the head and I'd be there sitting on my ass as the ump called a strike.

Does anyone have any idea how long it will take for him to show up on Yahoo? I need to add a big bat to my lineup... ;-D

So did the yankees actually pay him money to play in the minor league game or did he pay them?
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)
