GRAND CONCOURSE -

Fresh off their opening day victory, the Yankees got a big welcome back to the Bronx Friday.

Bronx students, community leaders and fans marched down Grand Concourse to celebrate the new season of baseball.

The parade was the first of its kind since Babe Ruth played for the Bronx Bombers many decades ago.

There was also dancing, music and even stilt walkers who made the march down Grand Concourse too.

Fans are feeling the hype for the new season, with hopes of a 28th World Series title come October.
