TAMPA, Fla. - Billy Crystal will get to “look mahvelous” in pinstripes.Lucky for him it's against the Pirates, which means he'll probably go 3-4 with 2 RBIs. Seriously though....someone get me video of this the moment it happens. Oh and I've got $100 for the Pirates pitcher that throws one at Mr. Saturday Night's dome. I know you don't need the money Ian Snell but think about the Blogger respect you'd gain. Don't decide now....just think about it.
The actor will sign a minor league contract with the New York Yankees and play in Thursday’s exhibition game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Crystal, an avid Yankees fan, will work out with the team on Wednesday and will wear uniform No. 60 for the game — to be played one day before his 60th birthday. The Yankees said Monday they have the approval of baseball commissioner Bud Selig.
Now batting for the Yankees ... Billy Crystal?
