Yankees Opening Day: What You Need To Know

Yankee Stadium is ready. @Yankees.

Opening Day in Major League Baseball is tomorrow, Thursday, March 30, and the Yankees will be taking on the San Francisco Giants at 1:05 p.m. at Yankee Stadium.

All gates will open at 11:00 a.m., and all guests in attendance will receive an Opening Day Commemorative Ticket. Pregame ceremonies are set to begin at 12:30 p.m., with the introduction of the Yankees and Giants on the baselines.

Yankees Hall of Fame closer Mariano Rivera will throw out the first pitch.

Singer and actress Adrianna Hicks, who is currently starring on Broadway as "Sugar Kane" in Some Like It Hot, will be singing the National Anthem. A giant American flag will be unfurled on the field by Yankees season-ticket holders prior to the singing of the Anthem.

Another Broadway star, Miguel Cervantes of Hamilton, will sing "God Bless America" during the seventh inning stretch.

Yankee Stadium will also have guest DJAy Jung performing prior to the game and during the inning breaks.

There also will be plenty of new food and dining options at Yankee Stadium, as well as the usual favorites. Click here to see our coverage from when the Yankees unveiled them last week.

This is the first time the Yankees, of the American League will face the Giants, a National League team, on Opening Day. It is the second time that the Yankees' season-opening game is against an NL squad, as they opened the pandemic-delayed 2020 season in Washington against the Nationals on July 23, 2020, which was a rain-shortened 4-1 Yankees win.

The Yankees are 67-52-1 on Opening Day in their illustrious history, and 37-18-1 when they have opened at Yankee Stadium. Their all-time record in home openers is 80-39-1.
