Andruw Jones on Tuesday night became the 13th Yankee since the expansion era of 1961 to homer in his first at-bat with the team. On a full count in the second inning, Jones smoked an offering from Minnesota's Brian Duensing into the left-field stands.

Here's a look at the baker's dozen to accomplish this feat in pinstripes. No opposing pitcher appears on this list twice, and the Red Sox are the only team to allow more than one Yankee to appear on this list.
