CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Reggie Jackson finally felt good enough to join the New York Yankees in Florida for his annual stint as a spring training instructor.

Jackson’s arrival had been delayed due to back surgery he had in January.

The Hall of Famer made the trip for Sunday’s road game against Philadelphia, and plans to be in camp until next weekend.

Jackson said his back is “getting better” and that he will be rehabbing it for at least the next few months.
