Torre, Tino, Willie to throw Yanks' 1st pitch

Joe Torre, Tino Martinez and Willie Randolph will be on hand for the Yankees' first home game of the season on Monday against the Rays.

Gates will open at 11 a.m. ET for the 1:05 p.m. contest, and pregame ceremonies are scheduled to begin at approximately 12:30 p.m.

The trio of Yankees legends will throw out the ceremonial first pitches in recognition of Team USA's championship run in the 2017 World Baseball Classic. Reliever Tyler Clippard, who was on Team USA, also will take part in the celebration.

Broadway actress Mamie Parris will perform the national anthem and a large American flag will be unfurled by 75 West Point cadets. The West Point color guard will present the colors, while Broadway actress Doreen Montalvo will perform "God Bless America" during the seventh-inning stretch.

All guests also will receive a Yankees magnetic schedule courtesy of AT&T.
