Yankees Revolutionary Grand Opening

Remember the New York Yankees baseball team announcement a couple years back on their grand plans to build a baseball stadium? Well a newly build baseball field is ready for fans to fill it! Across from the Harlem River in Bronx, New York, this $675,000 purchase of 10 acres of land is now 10 acres of Yankees. The team had been sharing fields with the New York Giants since 1913, reminder of the tension between the teams rising after the Yankees brought in 100,000 more fans than the Giants ever received. Order from the Giant's to vacant the use of Polo Grounds was put into permit and not long after that construction began.

First Game: April 18 vs. Red Sox

The inaugural game is not something to miss! Buy your tickets now, they may be sold out day of. Folks traveling from all over to see the great new stadium and hoping for a great season for the Yankees.

Wouldn't want you to miss the smell of the fresh paint and the green grass!
