Yankee Stadium hosts a premier college football matchup this weekend as the Shamrock Series featuring No. 3-ranked Notre Dame (10-0) vs. No. 12-ranked Syracuse (8-2) takes place on Saturday, November 17, at 2:30 p.m. The game will be nationally televised by NBC.

Stadium Gates 6 and 8, along with the Suite entrance, will open to ticketholders at noon. All other Stadium Gates will open at 1:00 p.m. 

Saturday's game marks the highest-ranked matchup of college football teams in New York City since Oct. 11, 1947, when No. 5 Army and No. 6 Illinois played to a 0-0 tie at the original Yankee Stadium. It also marks the first time a top-20 ranked Notre Dame team has played in New York City since Frank Leahy's No. 2 Notre Dame squad fought to a 0-0 tie against No. 1 Army on November 9, 1946, in front of 74,000 fans at the original Yankee Stadium. That game featured four eventual Heisman Trophy winners with Army's Doc Blanchard (1945) and Glenn Davis (1946), along with Notre Dame's Johnny Lujack (1947) and Leon Hart (1949).

"The University of Notre Dame and our football program has great respect for the history and tradition of the New York Yankees and Yankee Stadium," said Notre Dame Head Football Coach Brian Kelly. "That's why both of these brands mirror one another so well. Both Notre Dame and the Yankees own a storied tradition built around winning championships. That's why we're excited about being in New York City and playing at Yankee Stadium this weekend."

"We are thrilled to be hosting the Shamrock Series matchup between Notre Dame and Syracuse at Yankee Stadium, especially given the enormous implications it will have on this year's bowl season," said Yankees Vice President of Non-Baseball Sports Events Mark Holtzman. "Notre Dame is iconic in the world of college football and has a long history of playing legendary games in the Bronx. Syracuse has had a remarkable season of its own and will also enjoy tremendous support. Being able to hold a game such as this represents the continued fulfillment of our vision of Yankee Stadium as a preeminent venue for marquee college football."

The Notre Dame-Syracuse matchup at Yankee Stadium will mark the ninth installment of the Shamrock Series, an event in which the Irish play a scheduled home game at a neutral site. In addition to the game, the weekend features various off-the-field events aimed at bringing the full Notre Dame campus fan experience on the road to cities around the country. Presentations by University faculty and researchers, a celebration of the Holy Mass and a community service project are planned leading up to kickoff.

Additionally, fans can enjoy performances by the Notre Dame Marching Band on Friday at 4:00 p.m. in Bryant Park and on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at Macombs Dam Park adjacent to Yankee Stadium.

Notre Dame and Syracuse will each be making their third appearances at the current Yankee Stadium.

The Fighting Irish appeared in the current Stadium's first college football game on November 20, 2010, defeating Army, 27-3, in front of the Stadium's largest-ever crowd of 54,251. Notre Dame was also victorious in the 2013 New Era Pinstripe Bowl, topping Rutgers, 29-16.

The Orange are two-time New Era Pinstripe Bowl champions, defeating Kansas State, 36-34, in the inaugural 2010 contest and besting West Virginia, 38-14, in 2012.

Notre Dame and Syracuse have played on eight previous occasions all time, with the Irish leading the series, 5-3. One of the meetings took place at the original Yankee Stadium -- a 14-7 Syracuse win on Thanksgiving Day in 1963. In the most recent game between the teams, Notre Dame won, 50-33, on Oct. 1, 2016, at a neutral site.

Yankees re-sign LHP CC Sabathia to one-year contract

The New York Yankees announced today they have re-signed LHP CC Sabathia to a one-year contract for the 2019 season. 

Sabathia, 38, has spent 10 seasons with the Yankees (2009-18), going 129-80 with a 3.74 ERA (1,810.2IP, 752ER) in 284 starts. On the Yankees' all-time franchise lists, he ranks fourth in strikeouts (1,593), seventh in starts, 11th in wins and 12th in innings pitched. He has made the second-most starts by a Yankees pitcher who began his Major League career with another team, trailing only Hall of Famer Red Ruffing (391). Sabathia is one of 15 pitchers to pitch in at least 10 seasons with the Yankees, and only OF Brett Gardner (11 seasons since 2008) has a longer continuous tenure among current Yankees. As a Yankee in the postseason, Sabathia is 8-4 with a 3.45 ERA (104.1IP, 40ER) in 19 appearances (18 starts).

As a Yankee in the postseason, Sabathia is 8-4 with a 3.45 ERA (104.1IP, 40ER) in 19 appearances (18 starts).

In 2018, Sabathia went 9-7 with a 3.65 ERA (153.0IP, 62ER) in 29 starts with the Yankees, producing his lowest ERA since 2012 (3.38). The season marked his third straight with a sub-4.00 ERA after recording ERAs above 4.50 all three seasons from 2013-15.

Since making his Major League debut in 2001, Sabathia has a 246-153 (.617) record with a 3.70 ERA and 2,986K in 538 career starts, making him the active leader in strikeouts, innings pitched (3,470.0) and complete games (38, tied), while ranking second in wins and starts to Bartolo Colon (247-188 in 565 games/552 starts).

He has pitched in 18 Major League seasons (2001-18), and is one of four players - and the only pitcher - to appear in each Major League season since 2001, joining Adrian Beltré, Albert Pujols and Ichiro Suzuki. He is one of 17 pitchers all-time - and the only active pitcher - to make at least 25 starts in 17-or-more seasons (2001-13, '15-18).

The Vallejo, Calif., native ranks 17th on Baseball's all-time strikeouts list, and needs 14 more strikeouts to become the 17th member of the 3,000-strikeout club; 14 of the 16 current members are in the Hall of Fame. He is a six-time All-Star (2003-04, '07, '10-12) and won the 2007 American League Cy Young Award as a member of the Cleveland Indians, going 19-7 with a 3.21 ERA and 209K.

Sabathia was originally signed by the Yankees as a free agent to a seven-year contract on December 20, 2008. Following the 2011 season, he agreed to a one-year extension for the 2016 season with an additional vesting club option for 2017. He signed a one-year contract for the 2018 season in December 2017.

With his wife, Amber, he established the PitCCh In Foundation in 2009, which is committed to the care and needs of inner-city children while helping to raise self-esteem through sports activities and education. In 2018, Sabathia was the Yankees' nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award, his third career nomination (also 2011 and '14). The award is given annually to the player who best represents the game of baseball through positive contributions on and off the field, including sportsmanship and community involvement.

The New York Yankees today announced that they have come to terms with outfielder Brett Gardner on a one-year contract for the 2019 season after declining the 2019 club option on his previous contract.

Along with Thurman Munson, Don Mattingly, Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada, he is one of only five players drafted by the Yankees to collect at least 1,000 hits with the club.

Along with Thurman Munson, Don Mattingly, Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada, he is one of only five players drafted by the Yankees to collect at least 1,000 hits with the club.

A native of Holly Hill, S.

His 16 steals in 18 attempts (88.9%) was the third-highest success rate in the American League (min: 15 attempts).

In 1,358 career games over 11 Major League seasons (2008-18), Gardner owns a .261 (1,232-for-4,729) batting average with 790 runs, 204 doubles, 61 triples, 96 home runs, 450 runs batted in, 561 walks and a .344 on-base percentage. Gardner has averaged 4.24 pitches seen per plate appearance over the course of his career (min: 3,000 PA), trailing only Mike Trout (4.27) and Matt Carpenter (4.25) among all active players who played in the Majors last season.

Gardner's 257 career stolen bases rank third on the Yankees' all-time list, trailing only Derek Jeter (358) and Rickey Henderson (326).

In both 2016 and 2017, Gardner was the Yankees' nominee for Major League Baseball's Roberto Clemente Award.

"Through this initiative we are proud to recognize the profound historical impact of Stonewall and celebrate the many meaningful contributions of the LGBTQ community," said Yankees Managing General Partner Hal Steinbrenner. "The Yankees wholeheartedly support equality for all individuals and applaud any efforts which make our society more inclusive and tolerant. It is our hope that this scholarship program will serve as a springboard for young LGBTQ student community members and advocates as they continue the pursuit of their dreams, ambitions and livelihoods." 

"The Stonewall Inn represents the very place where gay pride began, and we are extremely excited that the New York Yankees will be an official partner of ours and the upcoming 50th anniversary of Stonewall," said Stacy Lentz, co-owner of the Stonewall Inn and Founder of the Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative. "Their support of the Stonewall legacy is a historic step and we look forward to continuing our work together to elevate awareness and support for full LGBTQ equality."

The recipients of the awards will be celebrated at a game at Yankee Stadium during the Yankees' homestand from June 17-26, 2019. Events at Yankee Stadium will include representatives from the LGBTQ community, New York City Department of Education, New York City government and Stonewall Inn.

"This tremendous show of support by the New York Yankees is going to have an incredible impact for students who have given so much to their schools and communities," said Schools Chancellor Richard A. Carranza. "I look forward to meeting these exceptional students in June." 

During 2019, the Yankees will hold other LGBTQ community-themed commemorations, the details of which will be announced during the 2019 season. 

"The Stonewall Inn here in New York City is the home of the LGBTQ Civil Rights Movement, and it is heartwarming to see the New York Yankees support the next generation of LGBTQ civil rights leaders," said Speaker Corey Johnson. "The Yankees-Stonewall Initiative is a beautiful way to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and another demonstration of the Yankees' commitment to the LGBTQ community. No matter which team you root for, you have to cheer for this move by the New York Yankees."

Each summer, New York City hosts NYC Pride, which includes its famed Pride March. In 2019, New York will simultaneously be the home of WorldPride 2019, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. This sixth edition of WorldPride will be the first held in the United States and the second held in North America. The event, also branded "Stonewall50," is headlined by the theme "Millions of Moments of Pride," representing the invaluable and countless experiences every person encounters during annual celebrations and commemorations around the world.
