So, summer is officially here. I went to a Yankee game. :)
On Friday May 15, not only was I setting foot in the ballpark for the first time of summer '09, but I was stepping into a brand new ballpark. And let me tell you-- it's a beaut.
Coming from Pittsburgh, I know a thing or two about building new ballparks... 8 years ago we ripped down our old and drab Three Rivers Stadium to build two amazing new fields: PNC Park and Heinz Field. We went from having an ugly stadium to having fields that people want to visit, regardless of how crummy the Pirates are doing.
