Pettitte brings sunshine back to Yankee Stadium, briefly

I was thrilled that we fans attending yesterday’s game had the opportunity to welcome back and thank Andy Pettitte for all his fantastic years with the New York Yankees. I was also happy to enjoy a rare playoff day game at Yankee Stadium courtesy of Mother Nature.

But except for Pettitte’s ceremonial first pitch, which was a perfect strike thrown in pitch-perfect weather, we didn’t have much to cheer about. Freddy Garcia gave up a quick two-run blast in the first inning and the Yankees were never able to dig out of that hole. And then of course the torrential rains came back.

Let’s hope for a big start from our big guy CC Sabathia tonight. In the meantime, enjoy these photos from Games 1 and 2 at Yankee Stadium.
