Stadium Stories

Hard to believe we’re going to be losing our ballpark in little more than a year. Friend of YFSF Steve Lombardi, proprietor of the essential WasWatching is putting together a collection of stories about Yankee Stadium, and he’d like to hear yours.

Maybe you were there for a famous game? Or, maybe you once saw something there that you’ll always remember for some particular reason – because it was wacky or moving? Perhaps you once went to a game and that day will now always have great personal meaning to you?…Have you noticed a change in the Stadium “experience” through the years? Do you have a Yankee Stadium foul and/or homerun ball story? Have you ever been ejected from Yankee Stadium?

If you’re in the mood, send a story to author [at] baseballsamegame [dot] com.

  • I saw the Yankees play the Texas Rangers in 2003, and ARod got booed like crazy because at the time everyone thought he was going to Boston.
    And now he’s the first Yankee since Joe DiMaggio to get 100 RBI’s in 100 games. Funny how quickly things change.

  • I put this in the last post about favorite baseball moments, but I was there for Mattingly’s last game at Yankee Stadium, in 1995, which also just so happened to be the first post-season series of his career.
    Mattingly also hit the only post-season home run, and the last home run of his career, at that game.
    If you want to read me rambling more about it, here-

    Otherwise, suffice it to say that that game was absolutely amazing.

  • I was there September of 2004 to watch Pedro/Mussina. Pedro got pounded but being good little Red Sox fans, we stuck it out.
    After the game we made our way out of the Stadium, my husband needed to hit the bathroom so I waited. A drunk YF girl noticed my Sox hat and shoved me into a stairwell. Her boyfriend laughed. That’s what I’ll remember.
