Patch has a new teammate: Yankees slugger Mark Teixeira.
Teixeira, a two-time All-Star, has been appointed Commissioner of Patch Baseball. The first baseman will interact with Patch users by regularly responding to questions, sharing baseball tips and posting exclusive videos.
Teixeira will also offer young athletes advice on how to stay in shape and why healthful eating is so important for optimal performance.
“I live in a Patch town now and I keep tabs on my original hometown via the Patch site there, so I’ve seen the ways that Patch supports its communities,” Teixeira said. “I’m excited to be a part of that by connecting with Patch users who have the same passion for baseball that I do. I’m eager to see what kinds of questions they toss my way!”
