This Day In Yankees History 5/7

On this day in 1903 the rivalry would begin as the New York Highlanders, soon to be known as the New York Yankees, and the Boston Pilgrims, soon to be known as the Boston Red Sox, would play their first game against each other. The Pilgrims would win the game 6-2.

On this day in 1999 Yankees pitcher Hideki Irabu and Mariners pitcher Matt Suzuki would face off in the first match up of two Japanese starting pitchers in Major League history. The Yankees would win the game 10-1 but Irabu is still a fat toad.

On this day in 2000 the Yankees celebrated 50 years of the "Voice of God" by having Bob Shepard Day at Yankees Stadium. Yankees legends like Yogi Berra, Don Larsen, and Reggie Jackson were on hand for the ceremonies before the game.
