5. Apr. 10, 1998
The greatest team in the history of baseball (yes, better than the ’86 Mets) played in an epic slug-fest against the Oakland Athletics in their home opener.
Tino Martinez would be the only man in pinstripes to hit a home run, but the score board operator at Yankee Stadium had a very busy afternoon.
There were 10 pitchers used by both teams in the four hour-six-minute affair.
New York went on to win 114-regular season games and swept the World Series against the San Diego Padres. Still to this day, this team is considered the best to ever take the field.
