          Damn it, I don't know why this happens. Another poster a few months ago was complaining that he/she couldn't see my attachments. I wonder what the issue might be?

            I think this is one reason why they have scaffolding and protective netting surrounding the place. Remember, Shea did not have any scaffolding or netting - and while it was also next to an elevated subway, it wasn't as close as the one running by Yankee Stadium is.

                You know you're stronger

                  1) $$$$ They are selling the sod piece-by-piece.
                  2) The new park will have a completely different field configuration and will be raised.

                  • Tiger Stadium is now completely gone! So much for saving the memories of the game..... And to think they were going to save any of Yankee Stadium, yeah right. Money talks, memories are memories.... enough said. Sad day...

                      Yep, plus they dug so deep during the renovation, that since the 70's players at RYS were essentially playing in the basement of OYS.

                      • This step by step, slow procedure is heart breaking. I have to agree with the poster who said of the shroud, "It seemed like a widow's head dress the day of the funeral...just a protracted death in my opinion."

                        It's so torturous to look at when I go to NYS, that I try not to, though it's hard to avoid.

                            Have they essentially re-established the original field level footprint by removing these seats between the dugout and where they stopped?

                            • Yeah that's what i've been wondering ever since they took the seats out

                                I am headed over to the pre-renovation, and Kaplanski threads to investigate!!!

                                I think it is pretty clear that they stopped at the original outline. Can't believe no one has commented on this.

                                I still say that you never know what could happen until it is actually gone...
