TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Yankees manager Joe Girardi spoke to Alabama’s football team about topics he’s quite familiar with — handling expectations and success — to return the favor after coach Nick Saban’s spring training visit.

Saban said Girardi, whose team lost in 12 innings to the White Sox on Wednesday, brought his son Dante — a football and baseball player — along. Girardi spoke about three issues that can hurt a team with high expectations: complacency, selfishness and accountability.
