HOUSTON -- The first game of the new season at Yankee Stadium will have an old, familiar look. The Core Four will handle the first pitch.

Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte will throw first pitches to Derek Jeter and
Jorge Posada on Monday afternoon before the Yankees face the Baltimore Orioles.

Pettitte and Rivera will be honored later that night with the the Pride of the Yankees Award.

The game starts at 1:05, but fans are asked to show up by 12:30 to see the pregame activities.

Kelli O'Hara, Tony nominee and co-star of the Broadway musical "The Bridges of Madison County," will sing the national anthem.

During the seventh-inning stretch, James Moye of the Broadway hit "Bullets Over Broadway" will perform “God Bless America.”
