  • Speaking of "selling" items, they're beginning to get awful greedy now since the new stadium is in operation. If any of you went to Old Timers Day on July 19th, you may have noticed something a little different than what you are accustomed to.

    I was at Old Timers Day in 2004, 2006 and 2007. At each of those games they presented every ticket holder with a commemorative pin at the gate as they entered. This year, 2009 however, they weren't handing them out at the gate, but they were still available . . . provided you cough up 20 bucks.

      Wow now they are just getting ridiculous. Now you have to pay for the promotion item.

        • The analogy to an unburied corpse that is the current state of RYS just continues to deepen. First they wrapped its stripped body in a shroud, and now it's beginning to molder and decay. Then, when they start the controlled dismantling, it will be like an autopsy being performed.

          • It is amazing how much the Yankees organization is getting away with raping and disrespecting its fanbase. Unfortunately, far too many fans just look the other way or in many cases actually defend and seem to take pride/brag about the elitism and corporate mentality the team has taken towards its fanbase.

              I had tickets for OTD, but was ill and couldn't go.
              Finding out they were selling pins, makes me sick all over again.
              I wondered what they would give the fans for the occasion, the answer was NOTHING!!!

One thing i noticed from those pictures is that there is a part of the wall down the left field line still standing. And if my memory is right isn't that the spot jeter flew into the stands? Could they possibly be preserving it?
                Yes, VAPY. I posted this photo a few pages back from Yankees Magazine. I'm sure they'll attempt to remove it intact, as you can't have a concrete wall just sitting in the middle of a park.

                • Are those seats behind the wall?
                  No one can make you
                  Do what they want to
                  You know you're stronger
                  Than the lies
                  That they tell you

                    Yep, CD.

                    This (& the other photos I posted) were apparantly EARLY demolition photos.
                    The Main Reserve seats are still in the ground in the foreground of this photo when it was taken.
                    I recall when I took the Stadium Tour in October, many of those "Jeter Dive" seats were in real ratty shape.

                        • Show me an entertainer who's not for sale. Besides maybe Philip Seymour Hoffman.

                            Ok so what will they be doing with it? I doubt they'll sell it. How are you going to sell a wall?

                            • They're just waiting for the economy to come around so people have stupid money again. Now what's the bid on this authentic Jeter urinal?

                              • It'll sell and transportation will be up to the buyer(crane and flatbed). They'll give him a certain number of days to get it out of there or it goes back on the block. They'll refund his money minus a "restocking fee".
