Tomorrow is moving day for the Yankees. As the AP reported earlier today, the Yanks are, after 86 seasons, packing up and heading to a new ballpark.
On Friday, all but a few Front Office departments will begin the task of setting up new offices and a new home on the north side of 161st St. Except for the clubhouse staff, IT, the ticket office and the main switchboard, the rest of the Yankee crew will be start life in New York Stadium. Everyone else will join them on Feb. 27.
Meanwhile, in Queens, Shea Stadium seems to be mostly demolished with just half of the donut left. We’re still awaiting word from the Yanks about stadium memorabilia sales. Meanwhile, some of the Shea faithful want to see the Mets sign Andy Pettitte.
Anyway, this is your open thread for the evening. You know the drill. Play nice.
