Baseball and Rock- Opening Day at "New" Yankee Stadium


For the record.....today, April 16th, 2009 the New York Yankees opened the new Yankee Stadium with a 10-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians. Johnny Damon had the first hit in the new park, Jorge Posada the first home run....but Cleveland's Grady Sizemore had the first grand slam in a nine run 7th inning that crushed the Yank's home debut.

OK...what does all of this have to do with classic rock?

Well, during the opening day ceremonies, with all the former players and the pomp and circumstance, was former leader of CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL John Fogerty, complete with a bat shaped guitar, to sing "Centerfield". So, I thought, how about a baseball theme for the blog entry? For a Yankee fan (like me) the music eases the pain of the loss...well, just a little.

So here's a triple header with Fogerty, The Boss, and Meat Loaf (with an assist by #10, Phil Rizzuto).







Hey...we'll get 'em tomorrow. We've got Joba Chamberlain...and they don't!
