VP Joe Biden visits Yankees camp
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Vice President Joe Biden has visited the New
York Yankees' spring training camp.
Biden spent around 30 minutes on the third-base side of George
Steinbrenner Field on Wednesday while the Yankees were taking part
in early defensive drills. He was with Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla.,
and both wore Yankees hats.
The vice president talked with team officials, including manager
Joe Girardi and spring training instructor David Wells, along with
a number of players.
At one point, Biden put his arm around Yankees closer Mariano
Rivera as Girardi and reliever Joba Chamberlain looked on.
