What is Your Favorite Memory of Yankee Stadium?

What is Your Favorite Memory of Yankee Stadium?

 

Since opening on April 18, 1923, Yankee Stadium has become a baseball icon with a storied history.  

Yankee Stadium also known as "The House that Ruth Built" will have the last baseball game played at the stadium tonight after 85 years of being a baseball and city landmark.

Over the years the history of Yankee Stadium has been relived throughout the generations by storytelling from baseball enthusiasts.    

I have spoken to a number of people that grew up in the New York area that have made a special trip back to New York to attend one last game at the stadium this season. 

Are you one of them?

Yankee Stadiums Historical Memories

■The Yankees winning 39 American pennants since 1923

■The Yankees winning 27 baseball World Series Championships since 1923

■The Yankees won the World Series in the inaugural season at Yankee Stadium

■Babe Ruth's 60th home run in 1927
