Big Week Ahead at Yankee Stadium


After a rough series finale in Baltimore, the New York Yankees are headed back to the Bronx to open a seven-game homestand.

Via Yankees Press Release:

The stretch will feature a four-game series vs. Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels (Monday-Thursday, June 6-9) and a three-game set vs. Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers (Friday-Sunday, June 10-12).

The 70th annual Old-Timers’ Day will take place on Sunday, June 12. Fans are asked to be in their seats at 11:30 a.m. for the festivities with the traditional Old-Timers’ game to follow. All of the pregame celebrations will be aired exclusively on the YES Network. The Yankees will then host the Detroit Tigers at 2:05 p.m., also airing on YES. Gates will open to ticket-holding fans at 10:00 a.m.

The Old-Timers are headlined by Hall of Famers Whitey Ford, Rich “Goose” Gossage, Rickey Henderson, Reggie Jackson and Joe Torre. Former Yankees and current YES Network broadcasters David Cone, John Flaherty and Paul O’Neill will also be part of the festivities.

The eighth annual HOPE Week (Helping Others Persevere & Excel) will run from Monday, June 6, through Friday, June 10. The initiative is a unique week-long community program that brings to light five remarkable stories intended to inspire individuals into action in their own communities. Since its inception in 2009, the Yankees have recognized more than 35 different 501(c)3 organizations as part of HOPE Week.


Each day over the five-day stretch, the Yankees will reach out to an individual, family or organization worthy of recognition and support, surprising honorees with a day celebrating their accomplishments. Outreach will often take place away from Yankee Stadium, allowing the Yankees to personally connect with individuals in settings that highlight their greatest successes. Fans can learn more about the initiative and nominate inspirational individuals for HOPE Week recognition by visiting the official website at
