The Major League Baseball season is quickly moving towards the coveted postseason with the fall classic. The New York Yankees are actually right in the middle of that postseason push as September winds down. We had the exclusive opportunity to catch up with Tyler Wade, second baseman for the New York Yankees.
Multi-talented he can play just about any position on the field, he brings a deep respect for the game, and is quick on his feet, known as one of the fastest runners on the team. We met up with Tyler to let you know much more about this gifted athlete.
Find out how this Californian is capturing the attention of New Yorkers, what he is just too shy to do, where he would rather be just about any time of the day, what he loves about Yankee fans, and the top qualities he looks for in a girl.
