Believe it or not, this year marks the 10-year anniversary of when the New York Giants won Super Bowl XLII over the undefeated New England Patriots in historic fashion.
To recognize that accomplishment, the New York Yankees are having a special pregame ceremony on Saturday. Former Giants players Antonio Pierce, David Tyree, Shaun O'Hara and Jeff Feagles with throw out first pitches.

"The Yankees and the Steinbrenner family look forward to welcoming the New York Giants and the Mara and Tisch families back to Yankee Stadium," said Yankees Chief Operating Officer Lonn Trost. "This is a unique opportunity to highlight the 10-year anniversary of the Giants historic 2007 Super Bowl run. To have so many of the players here in this setting -- and to celebrate their remarkable accomplishment -- will make for a special and entertaining day."
As you may know, the Giants were down 14-10 with 2:39 remaining in the fourth quarter, and it was Eli Manning who led an 83-yard touchdown drive to seal the deal.
And my goodness, who could forget Tyree's amazing helmet catch during that drive?
The festivities will begin at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. The Yankees will face the Baltimore Orioles at 4:05 p.m. that afternoon.
