|Jets quarterback Tim Tebow (right) and Heat guard Dwyane Wade felt the full warmth of Yankees fans Sunday.|
The Yankees did not meet with Tebow.
"I didn't get a chance to see him," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said after his team's 11-5 victory. "I would have loved to get a chance to see him and talk to him. I'm sure he'll be back at some point. Obviously he's going to be around a lot more now. But I'd love to visit with him at some point."
He added: "He's one big quarterback. I see him in the stands, he doesn't look like a quarterback."
Yankees right fielder Nick Swisher has met Tebow before and, after being asked several questions about the quarterback, joked that he thought he'd be talking more about baseball than Tebow.
"There are a lot of fancy people that come to these games man," Swisher said when asked about noticing the reaction for Tebow. "Welcome to New York, Tim."
All Major League Baseball players and coaches wore number 42 on Sunday in honor of Jackie Robinson breaking baseball's color barrier on April 15, 1947.
"It was an honor to be at Yankee Stadium tonight on Jackie Robinson Day...65 yrs ago he broke down barriers...," Wade tweeted Sunday night.Information from ESPNNewYork.com's Matt Ehalt and The Associated Press was used in this report.
