The Yankees fell just short of making it to the World Series last season. All of the frustration, the anticipation, the boredom is behind us. The Bombers have a clean slate now; limitless possibilities lie ahead. It all starts with Opening Day.
Fresh off a third place finish in the 2017 Cy Young voting, Luis Severino will take the ball for New York. He squares off against the veteran southpaw J.A. Happ. It will be an interesting matchup, pitting two very different styles of pitchers against each other. I know I’m looking forward to seeing how Severino builds off his breakout campaign.
First pitch is scheduled for 3:37 PM. You can watch on TV on the YES Network, with pregame coverage beginning at 2:30 PM.
