Yankees Extreme Makeover

NEW YORK (AP) – It was extreme makeover day at Yankee Stadium.

No, the Yankees weren't revamping their banged up lineup. The

reality TV show “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” took to the

field and surprised a New York family with the promise to rebuild

its home.

Host Ty Pennington introduced the Lutz family of East Setauket,

N.Y., before the Yankees played the Mets on Sunday afternoon.

Shouting through a bullhorn, Pennington brought the Lutzes out of

the stands to join him in front of the pitcher's mound. Then the

home improvement crew ran onto the field wearing blue hardhats with

the Yankees' interlocking NY logo on the front.

After the introduction, Yankees manager Joe Girardi and

outfielders Nick Swisher and Brett Gardner met the family near the

Yankees dugout.
