After Thursday’s victory over the Brewers, Yankees right-hander David Robertson and his wife, Erin, hosted a fundraiser at Yankee Stadium’s Hard Rock Cafe to benefit “High Socks for Hope.”
Proceeds from the event, including a generous donation from Hard Rock, went directly to the David and Erin Robertson Foundation, created to help those affected by devastating tornadoes that hit David’s hometown of Tuscaloosa, Ala. earlier in the year.
CC Sabathia and Nick Swisher were also on hand to lend support:

Joe Girardi said before Monday’s game that he would “probably lean toward” using Joba Chamberlain if presented with a tight spot in the eighth inning, but when that situation came up, Girardi steered away from Chamberlain and called on Dave Robertson and Boone Logan to help lock down the Indians lineup.
Hey there baseball fans, Anthony DiComo filling in for Bryan at the Stadium, where, contrary to what I thought possible, the Yanks and Orioles are going to attempt to play a game in the slop. It’s still raining here and probably will all night, but not hard enough to affect things.
Couple pregame notes: first, Johnny Damon is out of the lineup after his back “locked up” on him. He’s not sure how he did it, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him on the bench Saturday, as well. There’s just no need to take chances at this point of the season.
David Robertson is back in town after his visit with Dr. James Andrews. Andrews reviewed his MRI and found nothing wrong, and Robertson will resume throwing in 5-7 days.
Then there’s Derek Jeter. He’s excited to play tonight. Imagine that.
