Baseball is back.
Opening Day is finally here, and we already have some interesting stories to talk about.
Long, tape-measure home runs are back in full force.
The New York Yankees have already gotten a big jolt from one of those in today’s game against the Boston Red Sox, their historic and bitter rival.
Veteran first baseman Anthony Rizzo put everybody on notice with a long home run of his own, a two-run shot that brought the Yankees to within a run against Boston.
The home run went well over the right field wall and deep into the stands.
In other words, Rizzo absolutely torched this baseball.

It’s nice to see home runs happening again.
Rizzo sure put a dent in that baseball, sending it way out to right field and well over the wall.
The veteran slugger is already in mid-season form with his power.
An 87-mph splitter was no match for Rizzo’s awesome power.
And this is a perfect response for the Yankees after falling behind 3-0 early.
They needed a pick-me-up and what better way to get one than with a long home run on a pitch that is absolutely crushed?
Baseball is back in full swing folks.
Strap yourselves in for a wild ride in 2022.
You can bet Rizzo is feeling the excitement of Opening Day and has plans to hit more long home runs at Yankee Stadium with the right field porch being so short.
We’ll see if there are some more fireworks in today’s game between the Yankees and Red Sox.
There’s always bound to be some back in forth when the two biggest rivals in all of baseball meet.
