    New York Yankees Spring Training

    Looks like the crowd is going wild for Derek Jeter’s final season!

    This fan, perhaps wearing sunglasses, sneaked into Steinbrenner Field in Tampa on Saturday to check out Yankees spring-training workouts.

    Raccoons are a common sight throughout Tampa and St.Petersburg, but few are known baseball fans.

    Eagle-eyed Post photographer Charles Wenzelberg spotted the raccoon and acted fast to snap this incredibly cute image.

    “If was a freaky moment and I happened to get it,” Wenzelberg said.

    The Post lensman had been in the outfield photographing a rainbow that had appeared over Steinbrenner Field. Then a loud noise startled Wenzelberg — and the raccoon.

    “I heard this banging sound – something fell, maybe it was a baseball bat, I don’t know – but it must have startled the raccoon because I see it running out of the Yankees dugout and into the stands,” said Wenzelberg, who swung his camera toward the fleeing critter.
