May 22 – Air Traffic Controller Needed: 161st and River Ave

NYY 2009 Stadium Logo(Bronx, NY) – WIth the 7 dingers hit in the opener between the Yanks and Phillies there have now been 82 homers in 21 games at the new stadium.    That’s just under an average of 4 a game and on pace for a 316 home run season, where last year the old stadium yielded 160 (anyone may correct that if wrong please). Quite frankly for a facility that is just a 100-200 yards north and slightly east from the old one it is quite remarkable to see such a dramatic change.   It does not appear they Yanks will make any changes during the season so for the next 4 months the fans will have to adjust and get use to it.  I wonder what the Babe or Reggie would have done in this house?  Or should we consider it New York’s 4th airport?

  1. Даа… Достаточно спорно, поспорил бы с автором…

  2. Babe Ruth would hit more than 70-75 home runs!! I think someday A-Rod could hit 75 home runs in this ballpark!! The new Yankee Stadium is a bandbox!! The Yankees should move the fences farther back or make the fences higher!!
