For the first time in memory, the Yankees are a sentimental favorite for much of America, wearing workout hats honoring the New York Police Department, the Fire Department of New York and the Port Authority Police Department and others involved in the relief effort.

"Every single one of them have been touched by it," said Yankees manager Joe Torre, a native New Yorker. "We did talk about it before the first game against Oakland, about a certain part of our heart -- that's what we are doing it for. It's more of a responsibility to make the people feel good in New York because there's been so much tragedy going on there.

"People in New York are tough. We'd like to be a part of that and say the reason that we are tough competitors to begin with is because we wear the 'NY' on our cap."
