How will Robinson Cano be treated by fans when he returns to Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night as a member of the Seattle Mariners?
Here are some fond (and not so fond) welcome-backs in Yankees history:
Take that, Boss!
April 27, 1982: Reggie Jackson, having left the Yankees after five tumultuous seasons to sign as a free agent with the California Angels, homers off the facing of the rightfield upper deck against Ron Guidry in the seventh inning. Fans chant "Reg-gie, Reg-gie," then direct a negative chant at owner George Steinbrenner, who is watching from his box. Steinbrenner later calls letting Mr. October leave his "biggest mistake."
June 13, 2003: Tino Martinez returns with the St. Louis Cardinals to a standing ovation and chants of "Ti-no, Ti-no." The night is best remembered, though, for Roger Clemens' 300th victory.
April 15, 2010: Hideki Matsui, the 2009 World Series MVP, returns for the Yankees' home opener with the Angels, gets his World Series ring in a pregame ceremony and is showered with affection. He goes 0-for-5.
All is forgiven
June 3, 2013: Nick Swisher, who had sparred with his beloved Bleacher Creatures late in 2012 over his postseason struggles before leaving for Cleveland as a free agent, is greeted warmly. Lyle Overbay, who starts for the Yankees in Swisher's old spot in rightfield, mimics Swisher's salute to the Creatures during the first-inning roll call.
All is not forgiven
April 16, 2009: Carl Pavano, who was not popular with Yankees fans, is booed during pregame introductions at the home opener vs. Cleveland. The scoreboard in centerfield, which closed-captions the introductions, reads: "Number 44, Carl Pavano (crowd boos)."
