Derek Jeter admits the New York Yankees spring training game on March 3 will be a strange experience.

The New York captain will play for the United States against his Yankees in a warmup for the World Baseball Classic.

Hopefully, I won't see any pitches inside, Jeter joked Thursday. It will be funny. It will be fun.

Jeter played for the U.S. team in the initial WBC three years ago.

I had a good time, Jeter said. I enjoyed myself. I think the first time around we really didn't know what to expect. Once you got there and you started to play, you realized how special it was.
