Friday is moving day for Yankees

New, comment

Eighty-six years after moving in, the New York Yankees are moving out.

The team's front office will move across the street Friday to the new $1.5 billion Yankee Stadium, which is nearing completion and scheduled to open in April.

The Yankees temporarily vacated the ballpark after the 1973 season while Yankee Stadium was remodeled, and the team spent two seasons at Shea Stadium in Queens before moving back in 1976.

A few departments will remain at the old ballpark for another month: the clubhouse staff, information technology, the ticket office and the switchboard. They tentatively are set to move on Feb. 27.
