Why the Yankees are cramming into 1 hotel room down the road

Sport is nothing without tradition.

The New York Yankees will be back on the road after Game 2 of the American League Division Series on Friday, and with that, one of their traditions will continue.


Yankees left-hander Nestor Cortes wrote an article for the Players’ Tribune that gave some insight into his experience as a Yankee. Part of that is road lore. According to Cortes, whenever New York has an away series, players choose a room to huddle together and relax after games. According to Cortes, it’s nothing too exciting — just room service and a good talk — but it has a deeper meaning.

He wrote:

“I couldn’t love those moments more than I did. To me, that’s what this is about. And I think that’s a big part of why we supported each other this year and how we became this unit.
