Tiger Woods, who’s in town to promote his new video game, EA Sports’ Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09, made an appearance at Yankee Stadium Tuesday night right behind home plate as the Bronx Bombers faced the rival the Boston Red Sox.
The Yankees didn’t quite play up to Tiger’s standards, losing 7-3, and the world’s No. 1 golfer limped out of the stadium during the eighth inning to a round of applause from the surrounding fans. It was one of the few chances Yankee fans had to cheer.
I wouldn’t be surprised if he also stopped by to watch his pal Roger Federer, who is in town for the U.S. Open. Maybe he’ll run into his good friend Sergio Garcia, who was on the courts yesterday with fellow Spaniard Rafael Nadal. Perhaps they can arrange a friendly game of doubles?
