Six years ago today, the final game at the old Yankee Stadium was played. The Yankees won that game 7-3 over the Orioles. Here’s the box score. Jason Giambi had the last hit and Jose Molina had the last homer at the old ballpark. Andy Pettitte started and Mariano Rivera recorded the final three outs. Derek Jeter gave a memorable speech (video above) and the team made a trip around the warning track after the game. I remember watching it and feeling like they had just won the World Series. It was that kind of ceremony. Never gonna forget that night.
Here is your open thread for the last few hours of the weekend. The ESPN Sunday Night Game kinda stinks, it’s the Reds at the Cardinals (Simon vs. Lynn). The late NFL game is the Steelers and Panthers. Talk about those games, the final game at Yankee Stadium, this afternoon’s win, or anything else right here.
