Nestor Curtis and Michael King have probably been the most impressive pitchers on the New York Yankees roster this season.
With two pitchers 1.4 (King) and 1.3 (Cortes), Vince leads the Yankees in Above Replacement or War.
King, an elite reliever, has a 2.03 ERA in 26.2 innings, while the “Nasty Nestor” has a 1.80 ERA in 45 frames.
However, they are making sure to contribute outside the field.
The two pitching stars are heavily involved with the community, particularly with the Yankees Healthy Home Plate program.
“Nestor Cortes and Michael King are helping to unveil the new Yankee Stadium Tower Farm, which will be used to provide a hands-on learning experience for students participating in the New York Yankees Healthy Home Plate Program,” MLB.com reported. Brian Hoch tweets

Promoting healthy ways and beautiful cooking and eating habits in the community
According to Yankees’ official site, the Healthy Home Plate program “gives young people in the area the opportunity to participate in a program focused on the importance of preparing affordable, healthy food and incorporating these foods into their lifestyle.”
During this activity, Yankee Stadium is transformed into a classroom where Sussex chefs teach young children to cook.
In addition, trained professionals teach young children about nutrition and healthy habits.
According to the Yankees website, “Each participant will receive a personalized chef’s jacket, a certificate, a cookbook of healthy recipes, a bag full of healthy meals for students at home, a gift card from the piped and tickets to the game.”
This is a very nice community service provided by the Yankees pitching stars.
