For Jones, history repeats

On Andruw Jones' first visit to Yankee Stadium, he homered in his first at-bat -- as a 19-year-old Atlanta Brave in Game 1 of the 1996 World Series. Tonight, in his first appearance in Yankee Stadium 3.0, Jones again homered in his first at-bat, only this time as a Yankee. Jones is making his first start of the season in left in place of Brett Gardner and Joe Girardi hopes to use him regularly against left-handed pitching, spelling either Gardner or Curtis Granderson. he has certainly helped his case for more playing time so far tonight.
