Jan 6 – #25 Will Remain at First Base – Yanks Announce Teixeira

nyy-26-logo(Bronx, NY) – Fans with authentic #25 jerseys were ecstatic as was Mark Teixeira himself.  The Yankees introduced their new star first baseman at a 1 PM press conference today, at the old Yankee Stadium, and Mark was definitely all smiles.  A lifetime Don Mattingly fan, he is thrilled to get to play that same position for the Bombers.

Teixeira was the No. 5 overall pick in the 2001 First-Year Player Draft out of Georgia Tech and broke in with the Rangers in ’03 as a teammate of A-Rod’s.   Today Teixeira gave much of the credit to his wife, Leigh, who helped seal the deal by telling him she wants him to be a Yankee.

Welcome aboard, Mark and thanks for marrying a brilliant woman.

  1. Teixeira is a life long Mattingly fan? I like him already.

  2. nice pic of mark, but i think i speak for all of the bloggers on this site when i ask, where is the pic of Leigh??? after all, we already know that she is really smart…now we need to check and see if shes a hottie!!!!

  3. Such a great move by the Yankees signing Teixeira. I spoke at length with a friend on the phone last night about it, and we’re both psyched. Finally, the two-way first baseman the Yanks have needed since Tino.

    His wife deserves thanks and praise from Yankees fans for persuading her husband to join the Yanks.

    Huge.
