A Piece of History: Gone but not forgotten

September 22, 2008 at 1:58 am Leave a comment

Ruth, DiMaggio, Mantle, Gehrig, Jackson, Mattingly, Berra, the list could go on forever. Some of the greatest players to ever play the game of baseball have called Yankee Stadium home. The beloved stadium, to both players and fans alike, has hosted its last game. Since the “House that Ruth Built” is closing its doors, the New York Yankees will begin the 2009 season at their new $1.3 billion stadium.

The structure may disappear but the rich history will stay in the Bronx forever. Whether you like the Yankees or not, you have to respect the history. I can’t say that I root for the Yanks on gameday, but I can’t help but to be fascinated with the early years of the Yankees. Even the recent years of dominance that the Yankees have had and what that stadium stands for, it cannot be ignored. I feel that if you are a fan of the game of baseball, than you are certainly a fan of the deep Yankees history.

Goodbye to Yankee Stadium.
