Some Yankees are positive for coronavirus

Four members of the Yankees organization in Tampa, Florida, have tested positive for the corona virus, several people with knowledge of the situation told The Post.

Two members work at George M. Steinbrenner Field and two have ties with the nearest minor league complex. Members are not identified by their proper name or job description, nor are they known when they were tested.

The two who are connected to George M. Steinbrenner Field are non-players and one of the two in the small league complex is a staff member who has not been around the Yankees facilities for a while.

Job descriptions from others connected to minor league facilities are unknown.

The Yankees do a test on Friday in Tampa, so there is a chance the number of positive results will increase. The Yankees had two minor league players tested positive for the virus in March, which caused the minor league camp to be closed.

The Yankees have held informal training for major league players three days a week on Steinbrenner Field, but the training ended on Friday because several major league teams received positive test results for COVID-19. The MLB then orders the facility to be closed for training and undergoes a thorough cleaning process.

Phillies had eight positive tests in Clearwater, Florida, and the Blue Jays closed their spring training facility on Friday in nearby Dunedin when a player showed symptoms related to COVID-19. Rangers and Giants, which has spring training facilities in Arizona, closed it this week.

Governor N.Y. Andrew Cuomo announced on Saturday that the Yankees and Mets would train at Yankee Stadium and Citi Field, respectively, if spring training took place, this was after the Yankees the day before discussed possible steps due to a surge in the Florida case.

Florida saw 4,000 new cases emerge on Friday, a record one-day increase for the state.

With the owner and player still deciding what the season is like in terms of games played and start dates, MLB is not expected to reveal when spring training will begin until after the party agrees to the agreement or commissioner Rob Manfred implements the schedule.

It is possible for the Yankees to use Scranton / Wilkes-Barre for their “taxi squad” players (30 at the start) during spring training and the place where they will train if a season is underway. SWB is a Yankees’ Triple-A affiliation, 158 km from New York City by car.

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.
