Opening Day  Opening Night at Yankee Stadium

My nine year old headed down to Yankee Stadium on Monday with his dad and good friends of ours. Unfortunately, the weather gods did not smile upon us. We were standing inside the stadium when they announced that the game would be played on Tuesday night. My son started to cry because he figured his chance of seeing opening day at Yankee Stadium was finished. In a way, he was right as we had to go to Opening night on Tuesday instead.

What a thrill it turned out to be. A warm night in the Bronx. Some outstanding plays by Melky. It really was a great way to start season especially considering that the good guys won. 3-2 Yankees.

I am really excited for another baseball season. BTW, as much as I hate to see the Old stadium go, the new one looks nice!

patriotjoe, Thanks! I was worried about it as well but since the re-scheduled game was at night, me and the kid were able to go.

It really was a great game...I just love baseball. I am a huge football fan but baseball is all about summer and being a kid among other things...

Nasty, It was a great game to be at. The crowd was electric as they say. Not sure that new stadium looked like the Death Star LOL but it was lite up in an odd way the other night. It looks to me like they really tried to re-create the old Yankee Stadium pre 1975 major renovations!

BTW, took the 4 train down from Woodlawn. I used to drive a lot but parking is a disaster there now with all the construction.

Looked like a fun game to be at, Irish.

So the new place is coming along, huh? A friend of mine who went on Tuesday night told me it looked like the Death Star. LOL
