YES to televise Yankees-Army exhibition game Saturday from West Point
The YES Network will televise the Yankees-Army exhibition baseball game Saturday from West Point. Michael Kay and Al Leiter will be in the booth, while Jack Curry will be the reporter.
YES' coverage will begin at 2:00 pm ET, and among the pre-game coverage will be a pre-taped feature about Major Stephen Reich. A 1993 graduate of West Point, Reich is considered by most to be the greatest pitcher in Army history. He pitched for the U.S. team in the 1993 World University Games, and also had a brief stint in the minors. He served our country across the globe.
In 2005, his helicopter was shot down over Afghanistan during a rescue mission, and he and 15 others were killed. YES' feature on Reich will include an interview with Army baseball head coach Joe Sottolano, who was Army's pitching coach when Reich played at Army.
