Reggie Willits Joins New York Yankees Organization

Reggie Willits is back in the major league and is now a member of the greatest organization in the world, the New York Yankees. If you don’t know who Willits is he is a former Oklahoma standout and MLB outfielder with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Willits stole 40 bases in six seasons with the Angels, obviously in very limited playing time, while being thrown out just 17 times. Willits is now the outfield and base running coordinator for the team after restoring and reviving Binger-Oney’s baseball program.

As a play Willits was a very aggressive base runner and will likely help the Yankees get aggressive on the basepaths, here’s looking at you Brett Gardner. Willits will also undoubtedly work with the plethora of outfield prospects the team has that are pretty close to the major leagues.  Welcome to the family Mr. Willits.
