Yanks, CBS to hold benefit for producer

The Yankees and CBS Radio, home of the team's game broadcasts, will hold a benefit on February 4 to help Carlos Silva, the broadcast producer who is battling esophageal and stomach cancer. Yankees radio broadcasters John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman will host a live “Hot Stove” question and answer forum previewing the Yankees upcoming 2013 season at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square, and attendees will have the opportunity to meet Mariano Rivera, manager Joe Girardi and GM Brian Cashman beforehand. Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira will also be on hand to take part in the "Hot Stove'' session. Tickets are $150 and $100 and net proceeds will go to support Silva and his family through the SVG Sports Broadcasting Fund.
