New York Yankees

Hideki Matsui went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's Hall of Fame Classic. From the HoF press release:

... Martinez, representing the Red Sox and pitching for The Knucksies, and The Wizards' starting pitcher, Kirk Rueter who represented the Giants, looked sharp and helped keep the game scoreless until the top of the fourth inning. But with Steve Avery of the Braves on the mound for The Wizards, Hideki Matsui brought the crowd to life with a towering home run over the 312-foot sign in right field. Matsui, representing the Yankees, received a huge ovation from the many New York fans in attendance.
