NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Curtis Granderson plans on making the most of an off day in his rehabilitation from a broken right forearm.
The injured Yankees outfielder flew to New York and intends to take students from Abraham Lincoln High School in Brooklyn to a screening of the Jackie Robinson movie “42” on Monday. The school’s athletic fields were damaged by Superstorm Sandy.
Granderson wanted to give New York some love — with the Yankees off and the Mets out of town — on the day MLB will celebrate Robinson breaking the color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
“In my rehab, whether I was in Florida or up here in New York, this was going to be a scheduled off day for me anyways, so it all timed out great,” Granderson told WFAN radio’s Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton on Monday.
