Game 1 Pre-Game Festivities

Monday, October 26, 2009

We are less than 48 hours away from beginning the 2009 World Series at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx on Wednesday. Today there were some releases on what to expect for Wednesday.

  • First, the game is scheduled to start at 7:57 pm ET, as it has been during the ALCS.

  • Jay-Z and Alicia Keyes will be performing "Empire State of Mind" before the game. The song is off Jay-Z's latest album and is Derek Jeter's batting intro music.

  • George Steinbrenner will be in the House that He Built for Game 1. Joe Girardi said in the postgame last night that they were out to win this one for him.

  • It is still unknown who is throwing out the first pitch. I don't know if the Boss is in any condition to do it, but hey, you never know. My money is on either Yogi Berra or Reggie Jackson. Although they have been bringing the 90's dynasty Yankees back lately for first pitches.

That's it we'll see what we got for tommorow.

See Ya!
