Yankees 5 Blue Jays 4
Even though we are big Mets fans we like to go to Yankee Stadium a few times a year. I was able to get these tickets from Stub Hub. We sat in the last row of the upper deck a little past first base. A. J. Burnett was not at his best as he allowed 4 runs in 6 innings. The bullpen completely shut the Blue Jays down as the Yankees won 5-4.
As we passed the site of the original Yankee Stadium we noticed that Heritage Field was finally taking shape 2 1/2 years after the last game was played there. Most of the grass was down for three baseball fields. Hopefully it will open soon since the people in the South Bronx should get the park space that they lost from the new stadium.
