Kyle Higashioka’s simple coronavirus strategy to restart MLB Yankees



Kyle Higashioka's simple coronavirus strategy to restart MLB Yankees

Yankees catcher Kyle Higashioka has brought Post readers behind the scenes as he tries to stay ready for the 2020 season amid a coronavirus pandemic. As told to Ken Davidoff.

Hello for the last time from Oregon. I have been here for more than three months now, but now it’s time to get back to work. I leave Tuesday for New York, and I will be at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday to start summer training.

The last few days before the season became official, I knew that this was a difficult time, when something needed to happen, I was actually very nervous during those few days. I am glad that something is known. My agent at the Beverly Hills Sports Council deals with me a lot, giving me the latest news. I didn’t reach out to our team representative Zack Britton too much. I tried to give Britt a break. I think everyone texted him. He might be flooded with calls and texts. I do not want to worsen it.

I am optimistic that we have a season, and I think optimism certainly pays off. It relieves a lot of stress when you don’t constantly worry about negative results, even though it’s certainly possible. I always imagined if the worst-case scenario would occur, then we would cross the bridge when we got there. There’s no point in worrying about it all the time. I couldn’t be happier that we at least get a chance to start the season, and hopefully we will finish it to the end.

It’s more or less up to us to try to isolate ourselves by acting as straight as possible and trying to keep our distance from others. We have to be in a fairly controlled environment once we get to the field. Obviously far from the field, we must isolate ourselves. I think if we do our best work, hopefully we will be fine. On the road, I would just go from the hotel to the field and that’s it, and that would be the same thing in New York.

With all the new rules, it will definitely be different. I think a lot of it is in place for our safety and just to make everything work during this strange season. It is okay. I’m glad we got the chance to go back there and play.

This shutdown has given many people time to think, and of course I have more free time than I normally do this year. I think the only realization I was aiming for was, almost like I could not believe that something like this, a crazy year, had happened in my life. Even though for the last 100 years in the history of our country, I believe we have experienced many years that are just madness – but I think this is the first year of my life that this chaos will go down. Things like this have happened throughout history. People in the past must face it, and we will deal with it now.

For anyone who reads this, I really appreciate you following me and following what happened in my life during this whole process. I am quite disappointed that we cannot have fans in the stadium. It’s a kind of team heartbeat, both at home and on the road. That’s one of the best things about playing in New York, fans. I hope everyone can watch us safely on TV, and hopefully we will put a good product on the field and win other championships.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
