We Now Know When C.C. Will Throw His First Pitch Against the Tribe

Posted By on Thu, Mar 26, 2009 at 1:42 PM


We all know that Cliff Lee will take the mound on April 6 against the Texas Rangers and Kevin Millwood on Opening Day. The home opener will see Scott Lewis on the bump for the Wahoos, and... well, I don't have time to figure out who'll be pitching for Toronto.

The big news today is that on April 16, when the Indians travel to New York for the official home opener at new Yankee Stadium, a very familiar, and very rotund foe will be waiting for them.

Manager Joe Girardi announced that C.C. will pitch that game, marking the first time his former teammates will get an up-close glimpse into what are certainly bound to be a pair of dead, cold eyes. You die when you wear pinstripes, right?

That is going to be one odd sight.
