Play Ball : It is opening day at Yankee Stadium!
It is opening day at Yankee Stadium! The sun will be shining and it will be a balmy 60 degrees!
The Yankees will be taking on the Toronto Blue Jays at 1pm. Masahiro Tanaka is pitching for the Yankees and Drew Hutchison for the Blue Jays.
And Alex Rodriguez returns after his 162 game suspension.
Ticket Prices are $149.95 and up. Call me for quotes!
Security will be increased at all major league stadiums this season, and the Yankees are encouraging fans to get to the Stadium early both on Monday and throughout the season.
Metal detectors will be located at all gates, and fans will be subject to screening and having their bags checked, the result of MLB working with the Department of Homeland Security. As has been the policy of recent years, all bags will be checked, and only MLB-compliant bags - 16 in. x 16 in. x 8 in. or smaller - will be admitted.
Because of the new measures, Yankee Stadium gates will open to ticket-holders 2¹/₂ hours before the scheduled start time of games.
