YES Network just said that the current Stadium would be upheld as a museum and for youth activities....

Hmmm... I guess if they do that, then... Well, it still sucks that normal families will have an even harder time affording a trip to the ballpark, but at least maybe they could go to the museum instead (unless of course it will be a "luxury" museum). That's still not the same, though. Anyway, I don't know...

Do you really think they'll keep it in some fashion and turn it into a museum? I hope so.

I honestly just didn't fel like any of th articles or anything on this...so maybe this has been covered.

Anyway...The Yankees obviously contribute a lot of money to revenue sharing. Considering that thy will be spending a lot of money on this project...I would assume that means they won't have to spend as much money on revenue sharing. I'm guessing that plays a big part in why the Yanks have agreed to pay for almost the entire project themselves, without asking for much help from the city or state. The less money they spend on the stadium, is just more money that they'd have to give away to other teams, anyway. This way...they don't have to give that money to other teams....instead, just putting that money into the stadium, and saving their city/state some money.

as a yankee fan and a baseball fan..this is horrible news. Saying stadiums must all be torn down at some point is not right. It's called remodeling.

This is bad for baseball. As a Yankee fan I would have the same feeling if Boston decided to scrap Fenway.

Terrible news.

The ghosts have truly left the stadium.

piss poor.

I'm afraid it is. Stadia just do have a shelflife, which is usually about 100 years give or take a couple of decades.

You can repair and refurbish only so many times. George is spending his own money, which is astounding that he is doing so and that baseball is going to let him. I'm probably as big a Yankee fan as there is and I don't see anything wrong with this.

As for prices, everything is more expensive in NY. Met's ticket prices are not drastically different. I'm not sure how lowering the prices on tickets at Yankee games is going to change the crowd dynamics. It's not like those corporate fatcats you cite would not still go if the price is lower. Inded, it would probably compell more of that as it would mean more companies could buy season tickets. You charge what the market will bear. It would be absurd to do otherwise. And given that bleacher seats can be gotten for $10, it's not like the common man cannot afford to go see a game there.

What are you talking about?

I said that stadium's don't last forever.

He said that saying that is not right.

I said that I believe he doesn't know what he's talking about.



I'm stating no argument. Just stating a fact. As far as I know...he corrected me, to say something that just doesn't make sense. How else would you like me to respond?


And, yes...I know that you stuck a little smiley guy at the end of your comment. That doesn't hide the fact that you weren't "just kidding".

No, NY has had many more post season games played there. That is why. More use. J/K.

I hate the Yankees.....but Jeter, now, he's a heck of a player! ;-D

Ok, I rambled, sorry. ;-D
