New York Yankees: 10 Most Memorable Opening Day Moments

9. Apr. 15, 1976

Baseball is back in Da Bronx.

Their home opener in 1976 marked the return to play at Yankee Stadium after two years in Queens. One of baseball’s biggest stages underwent serious renovation in order to keep up with the changing image of ballparks across baseball.

New York came back from trailing 4-0 and scored 11 unanswered runs to win the ballgame 11-4 against the Minnesota Twins.

Oscar Gamble went 3-for-4 with two RBI’s and two runs scored in the victory.

The Yankees would win six world series in the “new” Yankee Stadium, and it would play host to some of the greatest moments in baseball history.
