BRONX, New York. (WTNH)– The N.Y. Yankees are playing their best ball of the season heading in to the post-season. The Yanks won 20 of 28 in September.
First baseman Greg Bird is one of many hoping for a long playoff run.
The 24 year old has only played 48 games over the last two seasons because of a pair of serious injuries.
Back in the line-up and healthy, Bird is swinging a hot stick over the last week, hitting .333 with 3 home runs and 6 runs batted in.
That’s the way he was hitting way back in spring training, when he was making headlines for his pre-season performance.
He also made news back then because of his unique cat, “Mr. Delicious”, who might scare you at first glance.
“Yeah, yeah, I get that a lot. It takes some getting use to once you get use to him he’s great cat, he’s funny he keeps me company. Everyone says he’s ugly, it hurts his feelings,” a laughing Bird said.
The cat is the grandson of Mr. Bigglesworth” of Austin Powers fame.
