"...the sport's most hallowed cathedral."

It was already "destroyed" when they remodeled it in 1975-76, according to some lunatic Yankee fans. To be honest, the current stadium is an improvement on the older model, where it appears you were behind prison bars. Guess what? It still feels cramped in certain areas!

A new stadium will result in better aisles, bigger grandstands, better seating and better clubhouses for the players. Myopic visions don't belong in this city!

You are such a tool. Who pays your salary?

Great blog! Keep up the good work! I really hope you are successful. So often rebuilding takes place (look at the old train stations in various cities, for instance) and those amazing places are lost forever. I think Yankee
Stadium will eventually be considered one of those amazing places that was worth saving.

It's only a stadium, people, not La Scala or even the Roman Coliseum. Besides, whether it's a brand new one or a complete renovation, the result would be not the same stadium again. It's not the same stadium after the 1974-76 renovations. If the new stadium is built, it will be a beautiful stadium. One that's worthy of the Yankee organization.

And that comment was for free, which I'm glad to do, thank you very much. :)

Hey, Steinbrenner just needs the extra space for his expanded women bathrooms and luxury boxes. You know you just can't have enough of these. He doesn't care if the average family is priced out of enjoying America's pasttime. The poor bastard needs our tax dollars - over $200 million- to move dirt around and tear down the House That Ruth Built. Besides how awful does Steinbrenner Stadium sound?

That's why the name of our group is NOT "Save Our Stadium". It's Save Our Parks. Once those 22 acres are built on, they are lost to us forever. Let them keep the stadium SOUTH of 161st Street!

George Steinbrenner is greedy and unpatriotic. How dare he want to tear down the very symbol of sports Americana! Throw the bastard out of the Yankees! Babe Ruth must be spinning in his grave! Leave all the parks -Yankee and Macombs included- alone!
