The Yankees held their final workout on Friday at Steinbrenner Field before spring training games begin on Saturday afternoon, when they host the Toronto Blue Jays.
Following the practice, in what is turning into a tradition of sorts, the Yankees held a team-building exercise: a 64-person ping pong tournament.
Yankees players, coaches, field staff, and front office baseball operations personnel participated, with infielder Kyle Holder taking the championship.
