VIDEO: Yankees' 'Core Four' reunite for first pitch
Here's the footage of the first pitch on Yankees home opener day, featuring Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte.
Monday marked the home opener for the Yankees, which means there was a media circus around it being the final home opener in the esteemed career of Derek Jeter. There was a pre-game press conference with THE CAPTAIN and other hoopla -- including Jeter joining up with Jorge Posada to catcher simultaneous first pitches from Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera, respectively.
Here it is, for those interested:
That's the famed "Core Four," though as some on Twitter mentioned earlier Monday, isn't Bernie Williams being snubbed a bit on the "Core Four" thing? I guess you could say he was gone prior to the 2009 World Series title and began his career earlier, but he also never left like Pettitte did.
Regardless, that was a great moment for Yankees fans and surely for the normally-stoic Jeter and his pals.
