  Here's what we are working  on for Eyewitness News for  July 15, 2014. 

  Well if you are a Yankee fan or not-  I just happen to love the Yankees-  If you get a chance to see the new commercial airing in tribute to Derek is quite touching!  It brought this Yankee fan and other Yankee fans in the Newsroom to tears!
