So, it’s really done.

Each tier of the upper deck of the old Yankees Stadium has come down in demolition. I almost don’t want to believe it, and I don’t want to see the photos or the video.

Being 280 miles away from the Bronx doesn’t help either.

Greg Cohen’s site Sliding into Home has photos and a video of what happened today.

I don’t like this…


Click here to be forwarded to CNN’s I-Report website and see a video of part of old Yankee stadium come tumbling down.  I love the new stadium, but I do miss the old one and what it meant to Yankee baseball.

For some reason, this still hurts to see. I love the new stadium, but I wish they could have figured out a way to make all the new changes that make the new stadium great, without changing addresses. (photo credit: Tom Kaminski/CBS 880)

When trying to find a ticket seller for baseball tickets, try They’re a leading seller of sports event tickets and have reasonable prices for some of the biggest games this year. They offer cheap Yankees tickets throughout the season and you can view the full schedule and seating charts.

Today, with my lil’ red in tow, I visited the new Yankee Stadium for the first time and I was floored at how beautiful it looks and the way it resonates majestically.

It truly is a shrine for everything that resembles the New York Yankees.

The Great Hall is fit for a king and his court. Banners everywhere celebrating Yankees past and present. The Yankees Store is huge, the food court is amazing. The Hard Rock Cafe is part music, part baseball.

The field is beautiful. The lights around the field are bright and welcoming.

Even for me, as a deaf person, I was pleased to see the real-time captioning happen in between innings. I do wish I could have captions of the play by play announcer and other voices in the Stadium.

I do have some qualms…not everything’s perfect. I’ve read from other bloggers about the shortcomings.

I hate Monument Cave. It is ugly.

I hate the prison-gray walls in the bleachers. Paint them navy blue for goddsakes!

The larger-than-life video screen is…H-U-G-E. Wow. I could practically see Mark Teixeira’s nose hairs.

We sat in the grandstand seats, section 428, $30 a pop. But good views and definitely a good place to sit — not necessary to pay $1,250 or $375 or whatever it costs for field level.

Enjoy the photos!

I checked out today, and there are some interesting things from the old stadium being auctioned and sold.  For the nostalgic fan mostly but there are even a few things for the stalker fan.  Here’s what I found:

For instance, you can buy a baseball signed by Whitey Ford, currently going for $170.

Or a Derek Jeter signed seat-back?  $499.99

Or…this is crazy…maybe you like Yankee stadium memorabilia.  Perhaps you would be interested in a Memories package, which includes some freeze-dried grass, genuine commemorative Yankees grass seed and a crystal display… with actual dirt!  It’s being auctioned and its currently only $79.99.

But maybe a small chunk of Yankee stadium is not enough.  Maybe you would like something you can really use.  Like, perhaps, 4 feet of Yankee stadium sod?  You could plant it right in your lawn for only $6,000.  Plus, it comes with a bag of peat moss.  How great.

A pair of stadium seats: $1,499.  If you are a former season ticket holder at the old stadium you can buy your old seats for $1,999.

Finally…maybe you want to purchase an evening with Nick Swisher and Derek Jeter.  That will set you back a cool $1,600.
