If you’re a Yankee fan, this is the moment you’ve been waiting for. The Yankees open their season tonight on the road when they take on the Houston Astros. Here’s more about tonight’s game.

Game time is 7:10 p.m. tonight. According to an article by By John Schlegel on  mlb.com:

“It will be Opening Day for everyone at Minute Maid Park, but in the spotlight will be a certain shortstop wearing No. 2 in gray, playing for the visiting Yankees in Game No. 1 of his last 162.

There’s plenty of anticipation to go around for both the Yankees after their extravagant offseason and the Astros as they head into what they hope is a breakthrough season, but this is where Derek Jeter’s farewell tour begins, and that’s a storyline that’s hard to miss.

Everything begins for both clubs with slimmed-down lefty CC Sabathia making his sixth consecutive Opening Day start for the Yanks, his 11th overall, against Astros right-hander Scott Feldman, making his first appearance for Houston in his second career Opening Day assignment (2010 with Texas) — a matchup of 6-foot-7 pitchers.

Feldman’s road to this Opening Day start included a couple of changes of uniform. A year ago, Feldman was the No. 4 starter for the Cubs, and then was dealt to the Orioles for the stretch run. After a combined 12-12 mark with a 3.86 ERA in 30 starts, a season that compares favorably with his previous peak in 2009, the 31-year-old hit the free-agent market and signed a three-year, $30 million deal with the Astros.”
