It was a busy Tuesday for the New York Yankees involving several home runs, speaking to the media and a rather hilarious photo shoot.
The majority of the headlines yesterday did not revolve directly around the New York Yankees. However, CC Sabathia made sure he had his voice heard.
On Monday evening, Adam Jones was harassed by fans at Fenway Park. The fans threw peanuts at him while also tossing around racial slurs.
Of course, Sabathia had something to put into the mix. Sabathia, who has been in the league since 2002, spoke with the New York Post about his experience as a black player on the mound at Fenway Park.
CC Sabathia: "It's bad, you get called names, n-word, all kind of stuff when you're in Boston..we all know when you go to Boston, expect it"

Sabathia spoke out regarding Jones’ incident on the field in hopes that it will help bring awareness to cruel treatment black players have received in various ballparks.
There is not room for hatred in the sport and the fact that these racist slurs are still being thrown around is disgusting.
Sabathia took a stand and it won’t be long before some others step up as well.

Sanchez launched a home run off the first pitch he saw Tuesday night and never looked back. He followed that up with an RBI double to left center.
Austin Romine left yesterday’s game with an undisclosed injury when heading to third base…is there a chance a red-hot Sanchez could be returning to the Bronx sooner than advertised?
Stay tuned, ladies and gents.
The two did a photo shoot with the YES Network that found them switching jerseys. Of course, that made for utterly hilarious photos that fans will be laughing at for days to come.

Personally, I already found the new background on my phone.
As always, let’s end this Buzz on a positive note. So we know Aaron Judge as a gentle giant. What about a gentle giant who can mash? Just ask this television at Yankee Stadium.
Aaron Judge destroyed a baseball that then destroyed a TV in one of the @Yankees new outfield terraces.
Wow ?? pic.twitter.com/GkKilEJ4hF

Hide your televisions because Aaron Judge is crushing baseballs all over the place!
