“Baseball was, is and always will be to me, the best game in the world.” –Babe Ruth

Yankees fans are some of the most loyal baseball fans in the country. To the most fanatical of those fans, the Yankees home opener is a national holiday. The home opener takes place on April 4th, and those lucky enough to get tickets will get to see if their team will start the season out with a win at Yankee Stadium.

Tickets to this Event in New York have long sold out, but those willing to pay – a LOT – may still be able to purchase tickets to the Yankees home opener through secondary ticket seller such as StubHub. While you’ll have to pay hundreds of dollars for even bleacher seats, many diehard fans are willing to shell out the big bucks to watch the first home game of the season.

The home opener is the first of a 3-game series against the Astros. After that, the Yankees will play away games against the Tigers and the Blue Jays before coming back to Yankee Stadium for games against the Mariners, Athletics, and Rays.

The other matchups that fans are counting down to are the first games against the Red Sox. The first Yankees v. Red Sox games of the season take place in Boston on April 29th. The first home game against the Red Sox is March 6th. Any games that feature a Yankees/Red Sox matchup are likely to sell out, so if you want to attend, now is the time to reserve your tickets.

While Yankees fans love to talk about the number of World Series wins their team has enjoyed, it’s been 7 years since their last victory. For Yankees fans, that is unacceptable, and they are hoping that this will be the year that the Yankees make their comeback winning not only the pennant, but the World Series as well. The road to October begins at Yankee Stadium on April 4th. A win at the home opener will surely be a good sign to the fans that this could be their year!

Tickets to Yankees games can be purchased online or at the Yankee Stadium box office. Note that some games will sell out in advance, so it’s best to purchase your tickets in advance of your visit. Tours of Yankee Stadium are also available. Visit the Yankees website for information about available tour and tour prices.
