The last regular-season game at the House that Ruth Built will be next Sunday, September 21, 2008. Next season they will be playing in a new stadium being built right across the street from the current stadium. Yesterday, my brother, sister and I drove up from Northern VA to see a game. The Yanks beat the Tampa Bay Rays 8-4.
Current Yankee Stadium
New Yankee Stadium
We got to see A-Rod hit a grand slam home run in the bottom of the first. This was the first grand slam I've ever seen "at" a game. Very exciting!!! Here's A-Rod coming home...that's Jeter (Mags is drooling) waiting to greet him.
Speaking of Jeter, we saw him hit a home run in the 5th inning; he also tied Lou Gehrig for the most hits at Yankee Stadium. BTW, my husband knows that I will leave him if I ever have a chance with Jeter. He's not sweating it, however.
