    • For the sake of putting that hideous woman's picture back a few pages....I'm currently watching the Pine Tar game on MLB Network and I noticed that after Brett was called out and the game ended, that "New York, New York" began playing. I'm sure this has been discussed, but does anyone know how far back the yanks began playing NY, NY after games? This is the earliest I can confirm hearing it played after a game at the stadium (1983)
      thanks

      • I can only imagine a dugout conversation between Yogi and Casey.

        Don't forget this gem from the Aflac commercial which was based on a per diem he received during his playing days: "And they give you cash . . . which is just as good as money."

I was THANKFUL that the "powers that be " kept the Yankees inside the same walls that Ruth, etc played in... this can no longer be said......"I" knew, when I walked into gate 4 that I was in Yankee Stadium... I showd my son who is 24 years the two different pictures (old vs renovated") and he knew INSTANTLY that yeah, thats Yankee Stadium AFTER a renovation.... Was the renovation perfect? No, course not. But what they are tearing into NOW is " PRE renovation Yankee Stadium', and thus all your arguments fail..... 1923- 1973 Yankee Stadium is being ripped down, before your eyes.....But its much worse then THAT...HISTORY and a real American LANDMARK are being wiped off from sight, and all some folks can do is talk about a wider concourse and better venues
          All in the name of "progress"
          Totally agree, I was in the Old Stadium for Yankees and Giants, I think my first time I was about 6, spent half the game staring at the frieze. I loved that freaking place. Wasn't thrilled with the renovations, but once you walked inside, the ramps, the concourses, and that walk out to your seat when you came out of the concourse and saw the grass, it was still the Stadium. Never got that feeling this year, very disappointed.

            I was at the Pine Tar Game, great seats behind third on the field level - watched Brett freak out and charge the ump close up. The weird thing about that game is that there was no announcement of what had happened - just swirling rumors - inside the stadium...gradually the basic story made the rounds via fans with transistor radios, but we really didn't know the full saga till we got home. The most amazing aspect of that game was Brett's blast - high cheese from Gossage that he turned on and ripped into the upper deck - just above the spot where the bulldozers are ripping into the still-breathing guts of real NY baseball history.

                    There were plans for it back in 1998... I gotta say those "toothbrush lights" reek of Jacobs Field.. or Progressive Field or whatever it's called now... but the place looks so much more like the pre-renovated stadium than the new stadium ever will

                      Strawman,
                      I was also at the Pine Tar Game in almost the same exact seats. 3rd row field level right off 3rd base. I was 10 years old at the time but I remember we almost missed Brett charging out of the dugout because my Dad was trying to get us to leave right after the home run to beat the traffic. Lucky for us I wouldnt let him!

                      • Now when I think about it, the pine tar game is my first memory of watching a baseball game on TV. If it was 1983 I was 6 years old.

                          I was all for that plan but never really thought it would happen. It would have preserved and restored the Stadium while adding $uite$. The only aspects that I didn't like were the completely glassed in Loge level {$uite$} and moving the Bronx County Courthouse to LF.
                          Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen,and welcome to Yankee Stadium. Here are the lineups for todays game...

                            How was a court house going to be moved? Seems nearly unrealistics

                              If I'm not mistaken, those plans were proposed by and paid for by the Bronx Borough President Fernando Ferrer. His offices were in the Bronx County Courthouse. So I'm sure some brain surgeon was trying kiss Ferrer's a$$ and included it in the renderings of the proposal.

                              • Figures, I've been waiting to see the original facing of the mezzanine to be exposed in the demolition and it looks like they took the whole thing down without a trace. I was still holding out hope that out of all the sections that were painted white, there would be that one that was still green.
