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.

2015 Easter Parade NYC

On Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015 you have the opportunity to see Easter bonnets to the New York City extreme as "paraders" wander along Fifth Avenue from 49th to 57th Streets. The area around St. Patrick's Cathedral is the ideal place to see the parade. The Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

What You Should Know About the Easter Parade and Easter Bonnet Festival

Unlike most New York City Parades, the Easter Parade is a far less organized event. From 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. the area along Fifth Avenue from 49th to 57th Streets is closed to vehicular traffic, and folks wander the street admiring various Easter Bonnets and Easter outfits. Visitors in town during Easter will enjoy stopping by the area for a bit during the festivities, but seeing the various Easter bonnets and costumed pets is probably only worth a short visit.
