Whitey greeted everyone on the street this morning.
“She’s making the rounds,” said the man with her. “No one gets by without saying hello.”
Whitey is a 12-year-old Golden Retriever.
“But she is a Yankee first and foremost,” said the man. “She sat quietly early in last night’s game, but she was excited and waging her tail during the ninth-inning rally.
“Today’s game already has her excited,” the man continued. “We’d better keep moving because there are a lot more people to greet before we can go home and get ready for the first pitch.”
Whitey’s hopes ride with Darrell Rasner and the rest of the Yankees.
