Angels Yankees Baseball

The Yankees re-opened their new stadium on Tuesday, beating the Angels in a game that brought back memories of the old, ruined place across the street. Andy Pettitte got the win, Mariano Rivera got the save, Derek Jeter hit a home run and Jorge Posada doubled twice.

It was a day of celebration, and the first ring naturally went to The Boss. Sam wrote about the private ring ceremony just for George Steinbrenner.

As Brian Heyman wrote, the other star of the show was Hideki Matsui, who returned through a lucky bit of scheduling to be a part of the pregame ring ceremony. And, of course, the Yankees had a little fun with him.

Jerry Hairston Jr. also returned, as did ill trainer Gene Monahan. The notebook also has items on a terrible incident at the Angels team hotel, a record crowd at the stadium and Posada’s new place in Yankees history.
