Kentucky’s John Calipari enjoys time on field before Yankees game

Kentucky Wildcats head basketball coach John Calipari is one of the most well-respected coaches in the nation. Calipari also has plenty of connections, so he gets to enjoy fun Tuesday night activities like taking the field at Yankee Stadium when the Minnesota Twins visit the New York Yankees.

Of course, Calipari does so in style, too.

After taking the field, Calipari took to Twitter to share a variety of photos from his on-field experience. It all started with the Yankees brass.

Calipari is a family man, too, so he made sure to enjoy the moment with his daughter, Erin.
