Lou Piniella officially joins YES
According to a press release, Piniella will provide Yankees game and studio analysis on YES, will be involved in the network’s Spring Training and potential post-season coverage, and will contribute to YES special event programming.
“I’m honored and excited to join the Yankee network and be part of the Yankees family again,” Piniella said. “I left there in 1989 and it’s a thrill to be involved with the New York Yankees again and go back to my roots. I played on some great teams there and managed some great teams as well.”
Piniella was reported by the New York Daily News to be in negotiations with YES back in December. ‘Sweet Lou’ will also be in Yankees camp this spring as a guest instructor.
