Kenny and I ventured into NYC to Mickey Mantle’s Restaurant on Tuesday Night for ex-Yank Roy White’s press conference to announce he was starting this year’s Runyon’s 5K Race at Yankee Stadium.

It’s been a week since the Yankees held that familiar victory gathering in the infield following a win, so their 6-2 win tonight over Tampa Bay made it that much sweeter.
