Most people will be sad when the wrecking ball topples Yankee Stadium, but NY Newsday Columnist Shaun Powell begs to differ as he explains his disdain for the "House That Ruth Built". He does pay homage to the baseball history that resides withing those walls:
Still, to me, it's the stadium where I learned about baseball. I was not alive when they remodeled (almost exactly a month before I was born), so I hold onto the current Yankee Stadium as THE Yankee Stadium. Sure it's torture just to leave the place after a game and sure there are several obstructed angles. But that's part of the old timey charm for me. I can wait for the sparkly new stadium (which I love the design for) to grow from nothing. It will be a sad day for me when the old piece of history topples to the ground, but am glad to have spent as much time there as I did.
