Spring Training is over and the New York Yankees are in the Bronx preparing for their Thursday afternoon season opener against the Toronto Blue Jays. I know we're not 100% back to the way things were pre-pandemic but knowing that we're getting a full season and fans will be in attendance has me feeling almost giddy. For the first time in about a year, I'm actually looking ahead and feeling (mostly) good that these games are going to happen and who knows I might even be at Yankee Stadium for them. Here's a quick list of big matchups and dates for the New York Yankees 2021 season.

As the Joker once said "...And here we go!" Thursday, April 1st at 1:05 pm EST the Yankees host the Blue Jays, and "The chase for 28!" begins. Count this as a formal invitation to come watch the game with me at the Hideaway at Saratoga Lake Golf Club. After just a quick look at the Yankees 2021 Season Schedule I couldn't help but get excited for these matchups.
