The Yankees unveiled a new tribute to the victims of 9/11 prior to yesterday's spring training game with the Pirates. The foundation of the memorial is shaped like the Pentagon, while the Twin Towers rise above it. A piece of steel from the towers sits on the base as well. The surrounding grass represents the victims of Flight 93 that crashed in Pennsylvania.
The memorial was presented by the Gene O'Kane Division of retired NYC firefighters. Member Joe Holland, whose son, and fellow firefighter, Joseph was killed in the towers, threw out the first pitch to Tino Martinez. He was accompanied to the mound by his son Bryan, Derek Jeter and Joe Girardi.
