There is only one YS..and it was destroyed/replaced with that $$ making top alley. It's does nothing for me being at the new YS..nothing. I'd put a f'in wrecking ball to it, if i had the money to do so..and build an exact replica of the old YS.
Well except the monuments(of course) and that sweet HD big screen..lol, as that's the only things i'd not destroy.
There was no other stadium like the old YS..none. And Fenway and Wrigley don't even come close.(and iv'e been to both. Both are historic 'parks', but nothing like the old YS.)
Yankeephil- U r correct' The old stadium was the greatest! And the new-1 dont compare :( But i still like the new stadium because its where the yankees call home! But yes they should have built it the same damn way...
I never went to a old YS playoff game since 77' and i was really too young to remember it well. (all i remember was Reggie's 3 hr's..but i was too short to see them, and fans crashing onto the field, when the game was over..lol). I was 13, and a huge Yankee fan, but still at 13 you don't appreciate the 'moments' when they happen.
Then i had partial season tickets in the dark days of the 80's, where, if not for Donnie(add in Winfield and Ricky for a few yrs) would have been a disaster.
(I moved from the Bronx to CNY in 94', and every yr but 94'(lockout) and 08' Yanks made the playoffs. I saw easily over 500 games at the old YS, and not one playoff game(except 77') and i feel like putting my head through the wall, at the chances i had to see them from 95-07', as every time, i put family first. Dam I miss being single..lol )
True Phil!! I've been to Wrigley and Fenway (both while Yanks were there) and they were sht-holes compared to the Great Cathedral in the Bronx. I too would wreck & rebuild YS if I had the dough.
^^^^^How did the Cubs fans treat you?^^^^^
At Fenway, i was sitting with a bunch of Yankee fans thankfully..lol. But Boston fans were a class act, i must admit.
At Wrigley, it was not to see the Yanks..it was the Mets(free tickets/free plane ride with a Met fan, friend of mine), so that experience was different. Chicago is an amazingly nice city and Wrigley was a nice park..unique with it's ivy as such.
And Fenway, was easily the best place to see a game from, as i moved around during that Yanks-Sox game.
