Please read my accompanying blog which talks about my trip to the game with my Yankee buddy, Art Meole, who took these great pictures for me.

This is one of my favorite pictures. The ground of this field is the original old Yankee Stadium which opened in 1923. This field is located across from the new Yankee Stadium. The piece of façade in the background is from the original Yankee Stadium. The entire facade was located at the top of the original Yankee Stadium and stretched from the left field foul pole to the right field pole. This is the façade that Mickey Mantle hit with a home run ball that almost was the first fair ball hit out of the old Yankee Stadium. It was great to see this hallowed ground which held the foot-steps of Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle, and Berra now holding the foot-steps of youngsters playing our National Pastime
Taken from our seats, this photo shows the live action during the game. At bat is Soriano with Granderson in the on-deck circle.
