Rays INF/OF Sean Rodriguez (left) and 1B James Loney joined several Yankees at a clinic for 50 children from the N.Y. Center for Autism Charter School at a field in Harlem on Friday. It was part of the MLB Players Trust's City Clinics program to promote the game. "It was good to get out there with them," said Rodriguez, whose 4-year-old son, Sean Jr., is on the autism spectrum.
