Hello, Yankee fans. With Chad taking a deserved day off today, I have plenty to share from today’s workout/media session at Yankee Stadium. It’ll include ring thoughts, audio from Opening Day starter Andy Pettitte and a few sad thoughts on the old ballpark next door, which, as Joe Girardi said, “looks like ruins.”

First up though, here’s a look at what you’ll be interested in from tomorrow’s schedule of events:

10:10-11:10 a.m.: Yankees take BP
11:00 a.m.: Gates open to ticket holders
11:10-11:50 a.m.: Angels take BP
12:30-12:44 p.m.: 2009 World Series ring ceremony begins
12:44-12:54 p.m.: First and third baseline introductions
12:54 p.m.: Introduction of the giant American flag, unfurled by West Point cadets
12:55 p.m.: Presentation of colors by the West Point Cadet Color Guard
12:56 p.m.: The National Anthem will be performed by Kristin Chenoweth, along with a U.S. Navy Fighter Squadron Composite Twelve (VFC-12) flyover
1:01 p.m.: Ceremonial first pitch by Bernie Williams
1:04 p.m.: Umpires and managers to home plate
1:06 p.m.: Yankees take the field
1:08 p.m.: First pitch
1:08.30 p.m.: Roll call begins

OK, I made that last part up. Everything else is legit, of course.

I’ll be back with more in a bit.

UPDATE, 4:45 p.m.: A couple updates from the Yankees to answer your questions. The flag will be unveiled during the ring ceremony. And, yes, Hideki Matsui will be involved.
