Saying Goodbye to Yankee Stadium
Baseball fans are taking the opportunity to say their final goodbyes to Yankee Stadium, which will be replaced at the end of this season, the New York Times reported. Yankee Stadium, one of the most historic stadiums remaining, played host to this year's All-Star Game, and housed one of the greatest dynasties baseball has ever seen.
Fans and players alike were warned not to try and take anything out of the stadium, as pieces of memorabilia will instead be sold at a later date. Players have already inquired about some of the items, such as the foul poles, flag pole, and pitching rubber. The Hall of Fame has asked for the bat which sat atop the foul pole, but the historic home plate will stay with the Yankees, as it will be the only thing from the old stadium to be used in the new stadium.
