Quick Hit: Likely Incomplete List of Spring Guest Instructors

Pitchers and catchers have reported to Yankees spring training camp and so have a few of the position players but who is going to manage and instruct these guys? Well we all know the Joe Girardi’s, Larry Rothschild’s and Marcus Thames’s of the world will be there but half the fun of spring training is seeing those former Yankees greats and legends that come back as guest instructors every single year. Will Derek Jeter stop by for more than just dinner? Will Mariano Rivera teach Dellin Betances his cutter? Will Andy Pettitte give up another long ball or three to Aaron Judge? Will Mike Mussina ever grace the likes of Luis Severino with his presence? This we don’t know but as camp opens we do have an undoubtedly incomplete list of spring guest instructors to bring to you today.

Orlando “El Duque” Hernandez is in Yankees camp along with Reggie Jackson, Ron Guidry, Hideki Matsui, Goose Gossage, Willie Randolph, Stump Merrill and Lee Mazzilli. That’s pretty much your annual group of legends and former players and coaches, no surprises. Not yet anyway. If there are any we will be sure to bring those to you as well so stay tuned and have fun, it’s spring training time!
