The Core Four are back together — at least for a day — as Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte threw out the first pitch to Jorge Posada and Derek Jeter at Yankee Stadium on Monday.
Under overcast skies, New York Yankees fans got their first chance at home to say goodbye to the retiring captain and they did it with a standing ovation.
Jeter's final opening game in the Bronx had a special feel to it, thanks to his old teammates.
Rivera threw the ceremonial first pitch to Jeter, while Pettitte delivered to Posada.
Luckily, both pitchers' tricky cutters didn't cross up their catchers.
