A Thank You & Get Well Soon Letter to Martin Prado


First and foremost I want to say that I was sorry to hear about your appendectomy and the news that you would miss the rest of the 2014 season. These things happen and while they are unfortunate they do tend to happen for a reason. Your hamstring was not healing and you, like a true warrior and a gritty player that wants to win, continued to play on it as much as the Yankees coaching staff would let you. For that, for your heart, and for the way you left everything out on the field I want to thank you.

You exemplify the “Yankee Way” where winning comes before anything and everything. You were unselfish and you never complained when being bounced around from position to position and all over the batting order. All you did was hit, in the beginning of the game, in the middle of the game, at the end of the game, in the clutch, when the team was behind or when the team was ahead. You played the game like a fellow Yankee Derek Jeter plays the game, like it’s a game.

Get well soon Martin and get healthy for the 2015 season. We’ll see you in March.

Your fan and biggest drum beater,

Daniel Burch
