I went to the big city over the 4th of July and caught a Yankees game in the new stadium. It was nice overall. I wish we had the time to go to Monument Park and see that. I have been to both the old and new stadiums. The new stadium had more options, but just didnt have the feel like the old stadium. Being at the old stadium could just bring visions to your mind about the Babe, Mantle, Maris, Yogi, and so on.
And seriously, a billion dollar stadium can have some wider seats. I am by no means a big person, and I barely fit in.
The game was great though. The bleacher seats chanting each starters name until they pointed was a great start to the game. And then when Rivera came in to close it, it was electric. Living near Cincinnati and attending several Reds games, it did not compare. The fans of NYC were by far more into the game than I am accustomed to seeing....
Have you been to the new stadium? Tell me what you think? Do you think another baseball venue is better?? Let me know so we can visit that stadium as well.
