Bring the House That Ruth Built into your home
The Yankees held a press conference at the new Yankee Stadium to discuss the old place, revealing the long-awaited details of what will become of the memorabilia that made up the original Yankee Stadium.
And the answer is, much of it will be available to the general public. As we learned yesterday, the City of New York will receive $11.5 million from the Yankees for the right to sell off seats, bleachers, foul poles, and pretty much everything that was nailed down.
