Tuesday was a special day because, after a very rainy Monday, Yankees Opening Day was rescheduled and we went! The photos make it look like it was a sunny day but the truth was that it was 35 degrees and I wore two pairs of pants, two shirts, and my winter coat plus a hat I had to buy once we got there. It was worth it though because of the hot dogs. And the baseball.
We started with a tour of Monument Park which I had never seen before. Mike tried to convince me that all of the retired Yankees are buried under Yankee Stadium and all the games are played on them. I didn’t really believe him but had a lot of questions like where are their families and is it weird that Yankee Stadium is haunted? We also had a tour of the museum which I did not particularly enjoy. The best part was putting my name on the locker and climbing in which Mike did not particularly enjoy.
Even though the Yankees lost, we had a great time and I can’t wait for it to be spring baseball season and to sit in the bleachers with a cap full of ice cream.
