Take Me Out to the Ballgame
The "Bronx Bombers" broke ground yesterday on the new Yankee stadium in New York. The 51,000-seat stadium will be ready for the boys in pinstripes' 2009 season opener. As part of a larger South Bronx redevelopment plan, the new stadium will feature an exterior facade replicating the original Yankee Stadium, renovated in 1976, a retractable roof, and many of the newer hospitality and sports-related amenities found at ballparks around the country. So, line up the peanuts, cracker-jacks, beer and sushi for a rousing night with the Yankees in 2009! Or, even better, come to New York and check out the current Yankees' stadium while you can!
