With the new stadium set for a Feb. 17 completion date, the construction crews in the Bronx are coming down the home stretch. Zell’s Pinstripe Blog has one of the last sets of construction photos, and things look great.
Meanwhile, across the street at the House That Ruth Built, some initial destruction has commenced. It looks like the old ticket booths will be the first to go. As late as my senior year in high school, those tiny blue booths still sold gameday tickets. The old stadium appears to be roped off forever.
