Only Jeff Nelson Until Yankees Opening Day

Finally caught up… it wont happen again!

Only 43 days until Yankee opening day

Jeff Nelson came to the Yankees prior to the 1996 season. Known for his funky delivery, he proved to be an important piece of the bullpen during the 6 year run. The Yankee broadcast team still calls it a “Jeff Nelson” any time a pitcher fakes a pickoff to third and then to first in the same motion as to avoid a balk.
