It’s only May, but with the Subway Series kicking off today it feels like October here in New York.
The Subway Series between the Yankees and Mets has always been a highlight of the season and this year its even more special because it will be Derek Jeters final series.
Jeter announced at the beginning of the season that he is retiring at the end of the year, so this will be the last time fans can see him battle his cross-town rivals.
Many fans have made it a point to get tickets so they can see him in-person one last time. Jeter has been greeted very warmly by opposing teams since the start of the season as they pay tribute to him and his tremendous impact on the game of baseball.
It will be a 4 game series, with the first 2 games being played at Yankee stadium tonight and tomorrow night and the final 2 games being played Wednesday and Thursday at Citi Field.
Tonight’s game airs at 7:05 P.M. (EST) and will be broadcast on WPIX and YES.
Tickets for tonight’s game are on sale now.
