Old Yankee Stadium deconstruction
WFAN has some photos of the deconstruction of the Old Yankee Stadium. Ben pointed the big hole in the wall out to me after the game on Saturday, and it was a very somber sight. Looking up at the seats I’ve sat in countless times and knowing that the process of tearing them down has started … well that’s just sad. (h/t Seamus)

Added by Ben: I noticed this on Saturday when I went up to the Stadium. If you walk down the stairs from the Manhattan-bound 4 platform, you get a perfect view of the destruction. It’s going to be tough emotionally watching the Stadium come down in pieces while fans flock to the new one.

    Seeing that picture just feels so bizarre. I can’t really explain it.

    I have been going to Yankee stadium for 55 years.
    When I first heard that we were going to have a new stadium , it took me until I actually saw the new venue to move on.
    Yes it is sad, however how can any Yankee fan be unhappy with the new Yankee Stadium?
    Go Yankees , let’s get # 27 in ’09!!!!!!!!!!

      Too bad it will never happen, since Monday’s loss proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that the Yankees can’t win until they put Joba in the bullpen where he belongs.

    Sad to see it go. I’m not sure if I’ll ever go to the new stadium. Seems like they are pricing me out.
