Back to Yankee Stadium

I went to another Yankee game at their new stadium on Monday night. Unfortunately, because of a steady rain, the start of the game was delayed over two hours.

Once the rain lessened, the Yankee Stadium grounds crew worked quickly to get the field in playing shape.

At the start of every game at Yankee Stadium, the fans in the bleachers chant the name of each Yankee player on the field. Here is Yankee left fielder Johnny Damon acknowledging the bleacher chants.

Phil Hughes made his second start of the season for the Yankees.

Hughes struggled with his command over his pitches and lasted only 4 innings.

Yankee second baseman Robinson Cano has had a good start to his season. However, this night he went hitless including this fly out to center field.

This is Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, last year's American League Most Valuable Player.

Yankee first baseman Mark Teixeira has started the year slowly with a batting average under .200. Monday night he hit two home runs. This was his second one.

Yankee righthander Edwar Ramirez pitched in relief.

Another picture of Edwar Ramirez. This is my favorite picture of the night. In the end, the Yankees lost to Boston by a score of 6-4. The game ended after 1:00 a.m.
