Dean Anna has played baseball for a lot of teams in his life. 

He’s played for his high school at Lincoln-Way East. He’s played for John A. Logan College and Ball State University. He even played for the Tucson Padres, the Triple-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres.

And now, the 27-year-old Mokena native can add another stop to that list — the New York Yankees.
