    Better not - there are laws prohibiting that kind of thing. At the very least you might get busted for indecent exposure.

    This is home now - Citi Field, capacity 41,800 - and every seat in this ballpark seemingly filled, some standees as well, anticipating a piece of history as delivered by Mike Pelfrey, the 25-year-old from Wichita, Kansas. Into a windup, his first pitch in the history of Citi Field, a fastball for a called strike to Jody Gerut. Gerut off to a .214 start with no homers and one RBI. - Howie Rose calls the very first pitch thrown at Citi Field, April 13, 2009

    If the timing is perfect, I bet you the Yankees and Giants build a dual-purpose stadium on the old Yankee Stadium site in 30 years. LOL

    ^ Bleah. Multipurpose stadia are a pimple on the face of sports.

    Thanks for sharing DN4L. I can't wait to see the finished product. Looks like it will be a nice place for the people in the area to go, relax and have a good time. Has anyone seen what the finish product for the park next to the Harlem River looks like?

    Dear Friends,

    Great photos, as usual. Would it be possible to take close up photos of the signs and names on the trucks? These are important for historical purposes. This way we'll know who did what.

    Thank you.

    I wonder if that platform behind home plate of the little league field will be where they commerate home plate fo the old stadium. Judging by diagrams that looks to be the spot where it once stood.

    Sorry Mike, I didn't pay much attention to the trucks after yesterday's brutal loss..
    The first photo was the closest I took of the construction and the trucks, (still no names).

    YS home plate would be where 2nd base is on the LL field.

    Correct - there's almost no hint of the real Yankee Stadium in the new park design. Which, I have to say now that the dust has settled, is fine with me. Once they made the obscene decision to tear down the real thing and build a facsimile across the street in a park, who cares about whatever lame memorial to their disgusting decision our city fathers make. As long as it's a nice park for the community. And the baseball will be still be round on those fields.

    I noticed that the "exhust pipe" bat is still standing. Is the plan for it to remain in place, or has it just not been demolished yet?

    My understanding is that "the bat" will stay.
