The New York Yankees had a rough season last year and going into their first game of 2013 against the Boston Red Sox many of their star players were injured, including Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter. Fans also must say goodbye to famed closer Mariano Rivera, who is gearing up for his final season with the New York Yankees.
All that aside, die-hard Yankees fans had high hopes for the new year on opening day.
At Stan's Sports Bar, a local hotspot just outside Yankee Stadium fans gathered to celebrate the unofficial holiday and cheer on their team as they battled the Boston Red Sox, despite not having tickets to the big game.
