    The article states that there will be an area where people can "discuss", presumably the demolition of the greatest sports venue ever built.
    Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen,and welcome to Yankee Stadium. Here are the lineups for todays game...

    I think former clubhouse attendant Pete Sheehy had Bob Sheppard beat, in tenure...

    you think
    NO you are right
    58 for sheehy who pass away in 1985
    and about 51 for sheppard and gene monahan the trainer
    but my vote is still for bob sheppard

    Sheppard and Sheehy, two gentlemen who would never write a book about what they heard and saw. Especially Sheehy! Can you imagine the stories? I remember Mantle saying once that Pete would tell him stories about Ruth and Gehrig. I'd love to hear those, but you have to respect those guys for not selling out. Good job DN4L and drdg, figuring out Sheehys tenure. Theres a photo of him in an early 70's yearbook, sitting with Babe and Lou in '27, and a modern day pic with Fritz Peterson and somebody else. I hope it's not Mike Kekich.

    Edith Bunker: Well, I'm sorry, Archie, how was I to know? I thought it was a religious picture, "Cardinal Knowledge!"

    Did we ever get a final answer on if Sheey's plaque was removed before they filled in the dugout? I remember seeing some photos of the plaque still hanging in the dugout even as the stadium began to fall around it. What a find that will be in 40 years if it remained!

    Sheehys plaque was removed. I have seen a photo of the dugout during demo, and the plaque was gone. Also, I don't think that the dugouts were filled in, but they were destroyed.

    Nothing too new, but these renderings look a little different

    And yeah but one side is the original 70's parking garage, one is the new garage and the park, one is 161st, and then the subway.
    Remember, "nothing happened on that site" - that's why it's being called Heritage Field! LOL! It's to honor the "heritage" of BASEBALL - NOT the heritage of the Yankees. You got the Kool-Aid here first. We report. You Drink Up!

    Cool

    Did a *rough" superimpose of OYS/RYS on Heritage Field and it seems to me at least that NONE of these diamonds will be even close to where Babe Ruth, DiMaggio, or Jeter would have swung from!

    wouldn't be able to get 3 infields if the oys or rys plate locations were used.
    over the years the plate location was moved and the rys field level was 5 feet lower than oys, so it's anybody's guess where ruth stood.

    Hmmm..Sounds like the company line.

    As far as where Ruth(and Gehrig) stood, field level doesn't matter as much as at least getting the darn(!) longituded and latitude down to within 15-20 feet!

    If they could get to within a few inches in Queens, and spot-on in Atlanta, they could do the same here. NO excuses.

    i know i'm going to regret this, but - why is the exact location so important?

    the mets parking lot spaces weren't disrupted by the markers (and we all know fred-o wants the parking $$$'s) and even with that some complained that the markers weren't precise.
    doubt that any ballpark markers are exact, it's the thought that counts.
    i could want a marker where my parents (both nyy employees, 1st to marry) first met, but it's not that important.

    isn't the point of this field to get as many young/old local athletes using the field as possible?
    i've recently played in parks with overlapping fields and the more the infields are seperated the less chance of outfield disruptions during play.

    kids will be happy playing on the site of the old stadium.
    you want a museum, not realistic.
