No one ever forgets their first visit to Yankee Stadium - I certainly remember mine. The color, the noise, and the nearness of history ... the spectacle takes your breath away.
And now, in 2008, the greatest cathedral to the game of baseball, is about to close its doors forever. I could not let such a historic moment pass without honoring it in my way. And so,Yankee Stadium.
This is the originalYankee Stadium- the house that Ruth built - with its cavernous center field and its statues to the immortal Bronx Bombers. A colorful crowd packs the stands, and the Yankees of yore take the field.
Because this is a distant view, you can people the field with Yankee heroes of your choosing. Could that be Lou Gehrig on first base? Babe Ruth in right field? Joe DiMaggio patrolling center? Or maybe it's Mickey Mantle in center and Roger Maris in right. It could even be contemporaries - Derek Jeter at short and A-Rod at third. For eighty-five years, some of the greatest players in the game have calledYankee Stadiumhome. Now you can bring this Field of Dreams into your home.
