It was a picture perfect day for the Yankees’ home opener yesterday against the Los Angeles Angels. Not only was the sun shining and the temperatures milder than the beginning of the week but the Bronx Bombers beat the Angels 5-0.
As early as 11am, thousands of loyal fans had gathered at the stadium and for the next two hours thousands more kept coming. Due to Spring Break many children were in tow with their parents.
One little fan in particular was Mario Gomez, Jr from New Jersey who was visibly jubilant at the experience of opening day with his father, Mario Gomez who is a Bronx native.
At 12:58pm, two F18 Fighter Jets flew over Yankee Stadium in honor of opening day but many local residents expressed their disapproval of what they felt was unnecessary. Several commented on Facebook saying that their apartments were rattling and car alarms going off all over the place was quite the nuisance.
Overall, whether you were a kid enjoying his first game or opening day, a couple on a date or just one of the gang hanging out, it was certainly a great day to be a Yankee fan.
