Biden visits George M. Steinbrenner Field

TAMPA, Fla. -- Vice President Joe Biden was on the infield grass at George M. Steinbrenner Field on Wednesday, watching the Yankees workout before their game against the Blue Jays.

Wearing a Yankees cap, Biden chatted with manager Joe Girardi and guest instructors Goose Gossage, Ron Guidry and David Wells, among others.

While Biden spoke with players and coaches for about 30 minutes, most of the Yankees were working on fielding bunts and pickoffs, doing their normal routines in front of an audience that also included several Secret Service members.

Biden is scheduled to attend a fundraiser for U.S. Senator Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) on Wednesday evening in Tampa. He was in Orlando, Fla., earlier in the day, discussing high-speed rail projects with donors.
