Today ,if you have not heard, is Opening day for Major League Baseball or the MLB. I particularly love the sport baseball and support the New York Yankees as my favorite team. The Yankees have been a baseball team since 1903 when Frank Farrell and Bill Devery bought the team and franchise for $18,000 and then quickly moved the team to New York. Today the Yankees home is in the Bronx, N.Y. The New York Yankees has had and still has many memorable and amazing baseball players. Such players are Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson, Joe Dimaggio, Lou Gehrig, and some recent players such as Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez,Mark Teixeira, and C.C. Sabathia. The Yankees has successfully won 27 world series titles with the most recent being in 2009. But today is opening day not just for the Yankees but for all teams in the mlb. Since this post is about the Yankees im going to let you know some info about opening day 2011. For opening day the Yankees versed the Detroit Tigers and will verse them from the 31st to April 3rd. In a regular baseball season there are 162 games but since today the Yankees have 161 games to go. One Yankee that would have a huge smile on his face because him as others made a homerun for the opener game is Curtis Granderson. As Granderson did many other yankees made homeruns also such as Mark Teixeira. The score was 1-0 tigers but then the yankees caught up by making the score 1-3. Until the tigers striked back with 3-3 but winning the game 6-3 was the New York Yankees. So far the Yankees have started off with a great season with winning their first game and will keep aiming for the top.
