Stadium closes with demolition set for MarchBy
On Sunday afternoon, Tony Morante, a 50-year employee of the Yankees, led 40 fans on the last ever tour of Yankee Stadium. It was a bittersweet tour, and Oren Yaniv of the Daily News was on hand for the historic event. After the final set of fans left the field, the Stadium now sits empty awaiting demolition that the Daily News says will start on March 15. Nearly 85 years and 11 months after opening, Yankee Stadium will begin its sad swan song.
