NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

It was opening day at Yankee Stadium on Monday. First pitch was at 1:08 p.m. with the New York Yankees taking on the Baltimore Orioles in the Bronx.

It was the last home opener for shortstop Derek Jeter who will be retiring at the end of the season.

Jeter, who played just 17 games last year due to injuries, missed last year's opening day with the Bombers. His first home opener was back in 1996.

Former players Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte were on hand to reunite with Jeter as the "Core Four." Rivera and Pettitte threw ceremonial pitches to Posada and Jeter.

The Yankees defeated the Orioles 4-2.

"I don't want to jinx anything but it felt really good," Jeter said. "It felt like maybe my first home opener. It was a fun time for me."

After the game, Yankees manager Joe Girardi announced that closer David Robertson, who did not pitch Monday, was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained groin.

    New York City women are tired of hearing vile things yelled at them as they walk down the street. Many women are going public about street harassment and catcalling. Some even post picture of their offenders on social media. Founded in 2005, Hollaback! is an anti-harassment organization giving women a platform to do just that.

    The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that school start no earlier than 8:30 a.m. for middle and high school students.  This recommendation is based on biology.  Pediatricians say adolescents can have trouble falling asleep before 11 p.m.  Therefore in order for teens to get a full eight hours of sleep the school day should start later.
