So, Joe Girardi, what did you think of your new lead-off hitter Kyle Schwarber’s opening-day performance?
“When you think about his at-bats, it was 3-2 the first at-bat, 3-2 the second at-bat. I think there was a walk in there. Base hit off a lefty. He hits left-handers, right-handers. It is kind of what we imagined.”
“I’ve always enjoyed coming here as a visiting player,” Schwarber said.
“And now to be here on the home side and to be able to go out there and play for them, it’s special.”
