Sooner or later, they’re going to have to tear down Yankee Stadium (which, as long-time readers know, will not be done by us). It appears the process has already started. Via Bryan Hoch, we get some some overhead photos from WCBS 880’s Tom Kaminski detailing the first stages. Check out the wide view, one from a north east perspective, and a close-up of the now-dirt outfield. While I’m excited to see the team in the new Stadium, it is still sad to see the old one dismantled.

    This picture is sad to look at. Is Cashman really that depressed with the team? lol

      Are you kidding? Thats probably official NYY merch. Boston fans pay for CC’s salary in hate t-shirts easily.

        If what you say is true, then the irony in that makes my head explode.

    This makes me sad, I wish they could keep both stadiums.

      Two words: Tiger Stadium.

      You’re an idiot! Why would they keep 2 stadiums when there are no parks for the community?

        No need to call someone else an idiot. He didn’t say they should keep two parks. He just said he wishes they could. Clearly, it doesn’t make sense to keep both standing.

    How much are they selling a square foot of grass for?
