The right field stands at first pitch (Jeff Passan)

Yeah, yeah. Friday's first pitch for Game 5 of the ALDS was scheduled for 5:07 p.m. local time and so it might have been hard for each fan of the New York Yankees to get there for first pitch. But c'mon. There are any number of excuses the thousands of laggards have probably used to cut out of work early on a Friday and all of them are weaker than the one that involves heading to see your baseball team play a division rival in a do-or-die playoff game.

Yankee fan ennui: Catch it!
