From the Publisher

Diamonds aren't forever. After the 2008 season, the seemingly immortal “House That Ruth Built" will shut its gates forever—to be replaced by a brand-new stadium just a homer's length away. As if anything could ever replace Yankee Stadium in the hearts and memories of New York Yankees' fans.

 

Memories are what this book is about. From the moment it opened on April 18, 1923, Yankee Stadium was a phenomenon: It was more than double the size of any ballpark at the time. And what was happening on the field was just as phenomenal. In the third inning of that opening-day game, Babe Ruth hit the home run he deemed the most satisfying of his career. That fall, the stadium hosted the first of the many World Series games that would be played there over the ensuing 85 years.

 

And that, of course, was just the beginning. Remembering Yankee Stadium brilliantly and beautifully documents the stadium's entire career through a decade-by-decade account, a priceless collection of historical photographs, and, most movingly, the vivid, first-person reminiscences of the people to whom this “citadel of sport" has meant so much: entertainers and politicians, broadcasters and sportswriters, players and fans. No Yankees fan—no baseball fan—will be able to resist this incredible book.
