Yesterday, the day started out well enough with some nice opening day ceremonies, and the first at bat, and Jeter had the Babe's bat at home plate. As a joke he picked it up and pretended to get in the batter's box.
The bat was then sent to the dugout, and so many Yankees swung it like little awestruck kids. The bat then was packed up and sent back to Cooperstown.
The game, what can be said when my team gets spanked 10-2?
CC pitched well, but the pitch count got high and he left in the 6th. He held the Indians to 1 run, and the 'pen, for the second time in the last week, fell apart.
Posada hit the first HR in the new Stadium, and damon got the first hit (a single in the first)
Joba is on the mound today.
One nice thing before the game today, on YES, they did a tribute to Bob Shepherd, long time Yankee announcer. His first game was April 17th, 1951, and they had him recreate the lineup announcement.
And, what a lineup!
Loaded with HoF teammates Rizzuto, Mantle, DiMaggio, and Berra. That's something that isn't seen today.
