Yankee Stadium is now closed for business.

After 85 years. This makes me sad. It seems to be the new trend. Tear down a perfectly good stadium, say like they did 2 years ago with the perfectly good 35 year old Bush Stadium and put up a new one. There are some terrific "old school" stadiums around. Which is your favorite? Fenway Park or maybe Wrigley Field? How do you feel about the do away with the old for the new trend?

Just think of all the history they are tearing down. It is a shame when they close these places. They are so much history to be remembered. I feel that is it can still be used then it should be. It might be as fancy as some of the new ones and such but that shouldn't matter. it has a history and family after family has taken their children there to watch a game with them. Yeah it can be done in the new ones as well but they aren't any soul in the new ones just pretty boxes.

Mine isn't old school (it's only fourteen years old) but they did take a lot of ideas from the old days of baseball and that's the Rangers Ballpark In Arlington. If you weren't for old traditions and ballparks, we might have a completely different ballpark today. I, too, am not a Yankees fan, but I can understand there's a lot of history there and it's hard to believe they're going to tear it down. I've been there once and that was many years ago with my grandparents. I don't remember much, though. Just that I had a fun time.
