MOOSIC, PA - The Yankees will host their third annual Spring Fest from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 4, giving fans a chance to purchase single-game tickets, meet a former Yankee and get a "taste" of the new concessions at PNC Field.

Spring Fest will provide guests with the opportunity to meet former Yankees outfielder Darryl Strawberry, who will be on hand to greet fans and sign autographs from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Darryl Strawberry was one of the most feared sluggers in the game, known for his prodigious home runs and his intimidating presence in the batter's box with his 6-foot-6 frame and his long, looping swing.

In addition to the box office opening and Strawberry's appearance, fans will be treated to a behind the scenes look at the Yankees beautiful locker room, photos with CHAMP, fun in the Frontier Fan Zone and an exciting sneak peak into Legends Hospitality Management's new concession menus as well as the latest merchandise items in the Team Store.
