On June 24, 2016, Hank Steinbrenner hosted his second annual Hank’s Yanks outing at Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point Bronx. This year, he was flanked by current Yankees C.C. Sabathia and Carlos Beltran, and former Yankees David Cone, Mickey Rivers, Bucky Dent, and Gene “Stick” Michael. The Yankees, in conjunction with the tournament and silent auction participants, raised $60,000.
“The funds raised for Hank’s Yanks will support both the baseball activities as well as the community outreach work of the outstanding young athletes involved with Hank’s Yanks, the youth baseball teams backed by New York Yankee owner, Hank Steinbrenner…. Many [players] come from tough areas, and baseball is a way to keep them going in the right direction” (HankYanksGolf.com).
At this year’s tournament, Hank said: “Eventually when they get older, obviously they are not all going to play major league baseball, but it’s to help with college and give advice on colleges. We have kids that we helped get into college and we have had players drafted. It’s just for the kids, real youngster or high school age. It gives them an outlet to be associated with the Yankees.”
