Sal Fasano reachs the pinnacle of celebrity. Sal was featured in Richard Johnson's gossip column in The New York Post today.
August 22, 2006 -- SOMEONE is having fun with Yankee backup catcher Sal Fasano.

Chien-Ming Wang gives our dog Sal some major props in today's Ny Times!
"Wang credits his sinker to Neil Allen, his pitching coach at Columbus in 2004, and Sal Fasano, who caught him then.
“He’s got that unique ability that whatever you teach him, he can throw with almost immediate success,” said Fasano, now the Yankees’ backup catcher. “But that’s why you have to be careful.”
In Columbus, Wang threw six pitches, which Fasano said he considered too many. Wang took to the sinker so quickly, Fasano said, that it made sense to master that pitch and throw it roughly 90 percent of the time.
