So many memories were made on those fields, but time moved on and replaced many of the greatest baseball ballparks in the country. New York fans definitely remember Yankee Stadium I.

That’s the stadium in the Bronx that housed the Yankees from 1923 all the way to 2008. The team won 26 World Series championships there with legendary players like Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra and Lou Gehrig.

Since I did that post about what game you would go back in time to see, it became very clear that most of our audience is from other parts of the country.
