I sat in the right-field corner and this is the view from my seat looking back towards home plate. The guess is about 3500 fans turned out. Many of the people I spoke to said it was their first visit to the new Yankee Stadium The weather - while kinda cool - was not bad considering the cold conditions over the weekend. At least it was dry.
Face-painters roamed the stadium and affixed fancy Yankee logos on many children ... and some adults.
A group of fans brought their "Go Yankees" banner. They paraded up and down the aisles behind home plate. Aside from a wayward Mets fan who was booed when he walked around seeking attention, the crowd at Yankee Stadium seemed to have a good time. The Yankees lost to the Angels, but still own a two games to one lead in the best-of-seven series.
