85th Anniversary- Opening Day @ Yankee Stadium

Friday April 18th is the 85th Anniversary of when 74,000 fans attended Opening Day at Yankee Stadium. Babe Ruth christened it with a game-winning three run homer into the right field bleachers. Yankee Stadium opened as, the House that Ruth Built, and soon the Yankees will leave the field, fans will file out and lights will fade.

A New Yankee Stadium will open next season, but now you can recount the story of this extraordinary landmark with the new book “Yankee Stadium: Official Retrospective”. This book will take you from the field to the dugout, from the press box to the clubhouse, from George’s office to Monument Park. Every corner of the stadium is revealed. Yankee Stadium is more than a ballpark; learn more about the iconic moments in history that have taken place within its walls with this new book. We also have the mini-series “The Bronx is Burning” which is based on the best-selling novel. Relieve this inspiring story of 1977 in New York.
