Yankee Stadium

Yankees closer Mariano Rivera delivers to Baltimore's Jay Payton during the ninth inning of the final game played at Yankee Stadium on Sept. 21. The Bronx Bombers will move to a new stadium in 2009. Yankee Stadium's inaugural game was on April 18, 1923, vs. the Boston Red Sox. Babe Ruth christened the new stadium with a three-run home run in a 4-1 victory. New York won its final game as well, 7-3 over the Orioles.
