NY baseball battle begins in the Bronx

Baseball fans flocked to Yankee Stadium Friday for the first game of the second Subway Series.

Excitement was building outside Yankee Stadium as fans from Westchester and Hudson Valley feuded over which is the better team. The Mets started the season with a bang, but are now in a slump. The Yankees are recovering from a bad start with a nine-game winning streak.

While Mets fans seemed to dominate outside the stadium early in the day, Yankee fans are sure to flock to see veteran pitcher Roger Clemens on the mound.
