The Yankees let Billy Crystal lead-off a pre-season game today, to celebrate the lifelong Yankee fan’s 60th birthday. Check out the video.

Even though the concept of giving celebrities at-bats in Big League spring training games is getting really old, I can’t help but think this is kind of cool. Not only is Billy Crystal a short comedian totally out of his league, he’s 60 to boot. Still, he got a hold of a foul ball. Big hairy-chested Tom Selleck didn’t do much better for the Tigers a few years back.
