Yankee Stadium’s closing in 2009 marked a significant landmark for millions of Americans and Yankees fans around the world. You know we have a privilege in America to enjoy so many institutions, both professionally,collegiate, and nearly all levels of sports.
So many great players played in this stadium, Ruth, Gehrig, Maris, Mantle, Jackson, Jeter, you know the list of names is endless, but Yankee Stadium is the premier stadium and the Yankees are the premier team in America. I followed the Yankees in the sixties, even though I did not live in New York. But the Yankees were my team.
There’s only one team that signifies loyalty and brings a deep feeling of admiration, nostalgia, and can defines the game of baseball that many fathers passed on to their sons, the New York Yankees.
