New York Yankees
Home stadium: Yankee Stadium
Average March 31 temperature: 48 degrees
Just think, the whole reason these games are being moved back in the first place is because the MLB saw Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte celebrating their 2009 World Series win in hooded sweatshirts. And you say the rest of the baseball world thinks the Yankees are a coddled, overfed bunch of crybabies out to ruin the game?
Perhaps an early Opening Day is the best way to thank the Yankees for inspiring this little tweak in the baseball calendar. After all, maybe the team just needs a little reminder that just eight years ago, they played in the third-coldest home opener in the past decade against the Minnesota Twins. On April 8, 2003, it was a brisk 35 degrees while the Yanks and Twins were on the field, which is as cold or colder than any game-time temperature the poor Yankees had to suffer through during the 2009 World Series.
Besides, we don't know how the Yankees stay so cold when they have a league's worth of hate to keep them warm.
