Alex Rodriguez received the loudest ovation amongst the Yankee Stadium Opening Day crowd on Monday afternoon as the majority of the boos were drown out.

After missing the entire 2014 season because of a drug suspension, the damaged relationship between the Yankees and A-Rod had been highly publicized.

During spring training, the A-Rod skepticism seemed to die down a bit and even Joe Girardi noted last week that Rodriguez was the biggest surprise of the spring.
