THE BRONX - The Bronx Bombers opened their new home to 15,000 fans who won free tickets to get a first look at the stadium Thursday.

Fans visited the shops and restaurants that are part of the new stadium complex, and watched Kiss' Ace Frehley and former Yankee Bernie Williams smash pinstriped guitars outside the Hard Rock Cafe.

Some lucky baseball enthusiasts were also taken on a tour of the stadium and were allowed to watch the team's workout.

The Bombers play their season opener Monday in Baltimore against the Orioles. Their home opener is scheduled for April 16.
