NEW YORK (AP) Chase Headley hustled to New York, eager to help his new team right away. That's exactly what he did - about 4 1/2 hours after pulling on his pinstripes.
Headley came through with a storybook swing at the stroke of midnight in his Yankees debut, hitting a game-winning single in the 14th inning to give New York a 2-1 victory over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night.
"A little chaotic. Awesome, though," said Headley, acquired from San Diego in an afternoon trade. "Mixed emotions, but I couldn't be happier."
