Speaking with Michael Kay on The Joe Girardi Show, Yankees manager Joe Girardi spoke fondly of his time as an inaugural member of the Colorado Rockies, where he played from 1993-95.

Among the many memories discussed, Girardi talked about the strong friendship that he formed with Dante Bichette. Both were members of the first Rockies team, and Girardi named his son, Dante, after Bichette.


The Yankees will play in Mile High for the first time since the 2007 season when they visit Coors Field on Tuesday in the first of a three-game set. comments
