A couple of days ago, the Yankees confirmed a news report that they had cancelled a planned November 9 closing ceremony for the old Stadium.

PetAbe reported this on his site.

For all intents and purposes, this was a screw-up job the Yankees did this season. While the last night was memorable (I stayed up watching the entire thing, even though I had to get up at 5am the next morning), the organization did an awful job putting together the last season. They could have done so much more, but for whatever reason, they did not.

To be fair, YES network did what appeared to be thousands of hours of programming and a glossy book. But that does not do justice to the Stadium.
