Yankees Key Dates And Matchups On The 2021 Schedule
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.
