I ran into Ernie Accorsi in the press box Sunday.

The former Giants GM and lifelong Yankees fan recently underwent heart surgery and was reluctant to attend because of his lack of stamina.

But Yankees GM Brian Cashman called him last week and urged him to come, warning him if he did not he would regret it for the rest of his life. So on Friday, he changed his mind.

Accorsi's first game at the Stadium was in 1954.
