And the old Yankee Stadium simply could not offer what the newer baseball stadiums elsewhere could.

Furthermore there comes a point when a eighty year old building outlives its usefulness. Yankee Stadium is an enormous complex, its very difficult to keep a large and old building intact for so long.

Im sad, but change is a part of life. I am sure the new Yankee Stadium will be the home for the next generation of Bronx Bombers
Merchandise is big for the Red Sox too, but they kept Fenway, an older stadium. And it's not like the Yankees are just completely strapped for cash.

I hate to quote a satirical new source, but The Onion gets it right with this: http://www.theonion.com/content/node/27828 Just imagine if that happened, that Congress moved because they didn't like the Capitol. Well, Yankee Stadium is Major League Baseball's Capitol Building. Drafty or not, it's something that should be renovated and rerenovated until the end of time, never replaced.

It's quite possible that Hank Steinbrenner is an even bigger *ss than his father. He's approaching Art Modell's level now.


I'm the bleeding heart liberal your mother warned you about.

I agree wit you, TOG. A landmark like Yankee Stadium should be preserved. If it was falling apart to the point they could no longer safely use it, and it was to the point where they couldn't re-renovate it any further, then close it, but don't tear it down. Save it for the tourists. It was one of the first things we (my ex and I) went to see our first time in New York. I have at least a dozen pictures of us standing in front of it, and of just the stadium itself. I hate the Yankees, but c'mon. As TOG so eloquently put it, "Major League Baseball's Capitol Building." It was like a shrine among sports stadiums.


Not liking me will always be your problem. Never mine.

They don't suck anywhere near as bad Red Sux.
