Yankee Stadium: A Mecca of American Sports
The current Yankee Stadium in the Bronx went up in 2009, replacing the original ballpark that was built for a bit more than two million dollars in 1923. That structure, of course, was known far and wide as “The House That Ruth Built,” as its construction coincided with the legendary Yankee outfielder Babe Ruth’s peak.
The “Bambino” was only (arguably) the greatest of a slew of iconic Yankees ballplayers who called the original stadium home, including Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle. The Yankees rank as the most successful team in Major League Baseball (and among the most successful of any sports team in the country), having won 27 World Series and no fewer than 40 American League pennants.
The 21st-century replacement summons the original Yankee Stadium in its exterior while offering an expanded and upgraded layout and facilities.
Home Games at Yankee Stadium
Given the history of the franchise and the legacy of the ballpark itself, attending a home game at Yankees Stadium definitely ranks up there as a bucket-list experience for sports fans (and New York City tourists as a whole).
You can purchase tickets for individual Yankees games here. Upcoming homestands include against the Tampa Bay Rays June 17ththrough June 19th, the Houston Astros June 20th through June 23rd, and the Toronto Blue Jays June 24th through June 26th.
