New York Yankees Manager Joe Girardi has made it clear that former Charleston RiverDogs first baseman Greg Bird is the Yanks’ new first baseman for 2017. I photographed Bird during the 2013 season when he hit 20 home runs for the RiverDogs, including more in Greenville than any Greenville player that season. Bird has been in the Yanks’ Minor League system since 2011.
