Yankees’ Aaron Boone was pleased with the efficiency of the first practice



Yankees' Aaron Boone was pleased with the efficiency of the first practice

The Yankees did their first official training for spring 2.0 training, playing and exercising at the empty Yankee Stadium.

“That’s really different,” Jordan Montgomery said. “But it’s like working in Tampa in an empty stadium. You try to get your job, stay focused and stay as safe as I can.”

Unlike many of the back fields that the Yankees are accustomed to in their complex in Tampa, they have to use only one field at the Yankee Stadium because they adjust to their new situation.

After day one, manager Aaron Boone said he was pleased with how efficient they were.

“I think it went pretty well,” said Boone, who admitted Masahiro Tanaka was hit by liner Giancarlo Stanton early in training to change the timeframe. “Masahiro who was hit by taking air from there and made a little fear of everyone.”

But he likes what he sees from the work the team does.

“From an operational standpoint, I think we are in good condition,” Boone said. “We use four bumps for bullpens and it works well. It was a slightly longer day for our coaching staff, but we were in a good place in terms of the reps we needed. “

He said the team had to be “creative” in the way they worked and with various team building exercises, calling the situation “an entirely different animal.”

Montgomery said the hardest adjustment so far was a ban on spitting and licking fingers on the mound.

“I’ve done better,” Montgomery said.

Aaron Hicks added that it took a while to get used to wearing a mask when exercising indoors.

“This is new normally,” Hicks said. “It took a while to adjust to the baseball field. You want to be involved in the conversation and you are asked to keep your distance. “

He is careful when exercising indoors in Arizona and believes the team will do the same this season.

“This is really a conversation, to respect each other,” Hicks said. “We all have to be responsible on and off the field. We all want to win and want to be here. The goal here is to win the championship. We need everyone to be healthy. “

Aaron Hicks, who had just returned from Tommy John’s operation, said he felt “ready for the match” but admitted that he still had not found total consistency with his pitching following the October procedure.

Asked if he threw “100 percent,” Hicks answered: “one hundred percent? It took a while. I feel game-ready now to compete and be consistent in the field.”

The problem now, said Hicks, is speed.

“Some came out, some didn’t,” Hicks said. “There are some inconsistencies. That’s quite normal through the process.”

Hicks added he closely followed the national protest after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, which led to more focus on the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I feel it’s a pretty strong move now,” Hicks said. “That’s something that I want to be a part of. It’s something that has happened throughout my life: black life is unnoticed.”

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.
