Yankees Set Roster For Opening Day


Well first off let me say hello to everyone since this is my first post. My name is Stephen Crociata and I will be covering, for the most part, the Yankees minor league teams for Yanks Go Yard this season. I am currently the Lead Writer and Editor of Mile High Sticking the FanSided page of the Colorado Avalanche of the NHL. I was born and raised in the Bronx and I’m currently living in Croton-on-Hudson in Westchester, NY. I look forward to working with Andrew this season, and hopefully the post season, as we watch the best team in NY, our beloved Yankees.
