The Grandstand: My trip to New Zealand comes to a close

My trip has wrapped up in New Zealand, but I want to make sure to thank you, the fans, for following me on this adventure. It was an amazing trip, and I hope you all were able to feel like you were right here with me.

Pitchers and catchers report in just two weeks to the Yankees camp, but I will be in Florida before then to begin my final preparations for the start of spring training. I look forward to seeing all of you this season!
