Yankees give back by playing at Virginia Tech
The Yankees set up the exhibition game following the on-campus shooting last April that left more than 30 people dead.
"I think it's a wonderful opportunity for our players to see that you don't take life for granted," New York manager Joe Girardi said on a conference call with reporters.
Jeff Karstens will be New York's starting pitcher.
The Yankees also donated $1 million to Virginia Tech's "Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund" last May.
