The field looks great, the weather looks like it's going to be good enough to get the game in, and the Yanks wake up this morning winners of 3 of their last 4. It's a near perfect setup for the 2014 home opener and the Yankees will welcome AL East rival Baltimore to town for the festivities.
Hiroki Kuroda gets the ball today for his first home start of the season, and newbies like Ellsbury, Beltran, and McCann will get their first taste of the Yankee Stadium home crowd. I expect loud cheers and ovations for all 3 of them, although they'll all be dwarfed in comparison to the cheers that Derek Jeter will receive in his final Yankee Stadium home opener. And don't forget about that big Core Four first pitch ceremony. That'll be a helluva photo op.
Yes sir, it's shaping up to be a great day at The Stadium. Let's go Yankees!
