I considered myself lucky to get opening week tickets to a Yankees game, and even more lucky that I got tickets to see the two biggest rivals in MLB – Red Sox and Yankees. The following day, my butt still sore, I read that I had actually been a part of history!

The game started like any other, and most baseball games last a couple hours. This particular game began at 7 p.m. And it ended at 2:13 a.m the following morning. Seven hours and nineteen innings! Unfortunately for my poor Yankees, it was a heartbreaking loss after all that time. The final score was 6-5, and I was one of a few thousand fans who stayed til the end.

The next day, I read online that the game was the longest game in Red Sox history and the second longest in Yankees history.

I hadn’t been to an MLB game since around 1997 in Cincinnati. I certainly made up for lost time and got my money’s worth!

It was a great time except the price of beer is obnoxious, even by NYC standards. Pregaming at the Hard Rock Cafe will cost you $8 for a Budweiser. You cannot take beer into the stadium because they want to charge you an arm and a leg, or $12, for an Amstel Light. A hot dog was $7. In other words, bring a fat wallet.

Oh, and the Yankees finally won their first game of the 2015 season against Boston 2 days later.

I hope they will have a good season. The Yankees certainly had a lot of practice time in their impromptu double header Friday night:)
