NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – For the first time in nearly 60 years, two New York teams will open their seasons at home and at the same time.
Back in 1956, the Dodgers and the Giants both played host on Opening Day.
Some Mets and Yankees fans have crossed paths on their way to Opening Day at Grand Central Terminal, where the 4 and 7 trains meet. And as WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman reported, fans of both teams seem to have similar expectations.
“They have a tough year this year, a lot of injuries,” a Yankees fan told Silverman. “Even seeing [General Manager] Brian Cashman in crutches this morning was like an indication of it’s going to be a tough year.”
