The New Yankee Stadium

When you come in one of the entrances you walk into the Great Hall. Full of banners of the Yankee legends, and there are alot of them, Mantle, Ruth, DiMaggio just to name a few.




Yogi's banner



Last year for the All Star game being played at the old Yankee Stadium MLB had these statues done in all the team's colors and they were all over NYC. After the game, they were auctioned off- I guess the Yankees paid alot of money to keep theirs.



After we did our little shopping for my pin and shot glass we started up the ramps towards our seats to see the Museum and we saw this.....click on pic to read the sign.....lol

If you're not sure of where your seats are in the new stadium, there are hundreds of employees walking around with these cute signs. We wanted to find the Hard Rock cause Kim collects pins and shot glasses from all the ones she's been too.




It's a pretty photo heavy blog now so I'll continue with the museum and the game next post.

Aw how fun to see the new stadium. I know it is a bitter sweet thing, out with the old and in with the new. Some of my fondest memories were spent at the ballpark (phillies of course)

Thanks for the tour of the new stadium. I still like Fenway Park.

Thanks for the tour! Some day I'd love to go to a game at all the major league stadiums. Some day. Maybe. In the meantime, this was a great tour!
