Yankee Stadium is making room for another New York legend: Donna Karan, whose DKNY line became the first fashion brand to sponsor the New York Yankees. The designer, whose billboards and logos will be seen along the third baseline and the team’s dugout lounge, dropped by the Yankees’ batting practice to show the players some love before Friday’s game against the Texas Rangers. After greeting all-star player Alex Rodriguez and team manager Joe Girardi, Karan attempted to hit the mound. “I really want to pitch and they won’t let me pitch, and I want to hit the ball but they won’t let me hit the ball,” she told WWD. “These guys are really cool. I can only salute them.”
