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.

    If an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didn't plan on. Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis said in a phone interview Thursday that the company is pushing to get its cashiers to "upsell" to afternoon customers. It's part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush.
