    • How would Steiner remove an un-cut foul pole? Angling a flatbed out of the left field bullpen onto 161st St, how would you then negotiate onto the next turn? You have to either un-telescope the bigger bottom portion or helicopter it out.

      There are two outfield walls that I hope Steiner considers. One is the current padding that has been removed and the other is painted bleecher wall which is the old ,more valuable one. Very little is being discussed(by Steiner) about the original Stadium construction items
      MeiGray found an old Shea plywood outfield (396 ft)wall in a closet at Shea one wonders what a carefull search can reveal at the real Yankee Stadium.

        The seat FRAMES have been, Scooter. Obviously, the actual (plastic) seat parts have not, as you don't paint plastic.

        Some plastic seat parts have been retired & replaced over the years, but with the exception of the pricey seats inside the bases that were replaced with padded seats, as well as sections of seats in the middle tier as well .... many of the remaining seats date back to 1976. Those seats are easy to spot, as they are the ones with the solid back rests & the seat tags with the four rounded corners. The seat backs with the two small openings across the back rests (& with the fancier seat number tag) came along much later.

          one thing about the old place that I missed the first visit to the new place was that old wall.. the one that curved across the front of the black and the left bleachers,,,,you could see what it used to look like,, the shape of the outfield when the flagpole was in play

                  I don't think Yankee haters will regret this disgrace. Yankee haters will enjoy it. Thats what haters do.

                      They're charging an extra $500 because they believe they'll get it.

                      "It's only business."

                      David is right again. We all stood around and did nothing. As if the reality of what is now would not happen. We excused it with posts like "its not the real stadium anymore anyway" or, Yankee Stadium was completly demolished in 1975" or "oh the narrow concourses" that we have to deal with" etc, etc.
                      And so now the the same building, sitting on the same piece of real estate in the Bronx where Babe, Lou and the Mick played, will be "deconstructed" (politicly correct term for gutted, scrapped, then totaly demolished bit by bit)
                      There were some here who spoke out aganist it. Yourself of course, NY Kid, even me, several times in the 'To save Yankee Stadium thread'.
                      For the 1.5 or whatever it was BILLION dollars, the Yankees could have kept THE most historic ballpark in America intact, and renovated it to bring it back to what it was in all its former glory. They could then have said ' we realize what we have here, there is no way we would demolish the building that binds the past of Murderers Row to the great Yankee teams of tomorow."
                      The plain truth is this. 'Yankee history, Yankee Pride, really do not mean much to the likes of Levine, Trost and co. "The House that Ruth Built Steiner takes down" ad really said it all. For the right ammount of cash the "completly demolished Yankee Stadium of 1975" now becomes, by sheer magic, "The House that Ruth Built" again, since any items from the the 'completly demolished 1975 building' wouldnt garner as much cash for the Yankees and Steiner.
                      "IF" they were honest(which they obviously are NOT), concidering what they said about the Stadium, three years ago, their promo's would read 'For an insane amount of money, you too can own a piece of a 1975 era baseball stadium! Yes sirree folks, you too can take home a piece of a 1975 era ball park! For more info on this once of a lifetime offer, go to www.your a sucker.com"

                      So, when they really start ripping into the Stadium, will they be tearing down the 'House that Ruth Built' or by that point, after they have drained whatever cash they could out of it, will it be the "completly demolished 1975 building across the street?' Depends on who is doing the PR that day it seems.
                      Enjoy the martinis and the moat folks

                          Exactly. That's the problem though. People bitch about the prices but still fork over the money. If no one bought the stuff the prices would drop big time. I hate the greedy Steiners.

                            "If you don’t want the entire foul pole, worry not: the team may chop one up so fans can buy pieces to use as paper weights and key chains.

                            “Everyone is entitled to get something,” said Brandon Steiner, chief executive of Steiner Sports. “People tend to snicker and laugh about a lot of things, but if you had Babe Ruth’s cleats in your living room, you don’t think that would be point of conversation?”

                                I respectfully, but completely disagree. Thanks for a great visit to your house last year. Go Tribe.
