THE HOUSE THAT GEORGE BUILT
The last week of the season the Royals finally visited New Yankee Stadium for the first time. At a cost of 1.5 billion dollars, it’s an attention-getter. Last year I gave you one last look at the old place.
During batting practice the skies were getting dark. Here Ryan Lefebvre and Fox Sports Kansas City producer Kevin Shank catch up with former Royals Manager Tony Pena, now the Yankees bench coach. Notice the big HD screen in center. It’s big, but not quite as big as CrownVision at New Kauffman Stadium.
There’s a Yankee Museum in the new stadium. Here fans learn about the man who got it all started, the Sultan of Swat, Babe Ruth.
You may have heard the most expensive seats cost 2500 dollars behind homeplate. Well, that price didn’t go over very well. They slashed prices in half, to a still-exorbitant 1250 dollars a seat. You do get to eat in this beautiful club located behind home plate for all that coin. And of course servers bring whatever you want to your seat.
Yankees Manager Joe Girardi meeting with the media before a game. Most Major League managers draw between 5 and 10 reporters for most pregame news conferences. With the Yankees, it’s as though every day is the World Series. Just the way George likes it.
