Ten of the Greatest Photos Taken at Yankee Stadium
(Sorry, Notre Dame fans, Baseball only)
With the Yankees opening a new stadium in a week, it only seems fitting that we count down the top photos taken at or about the House that Ruth built.
Yet, the question remains: How will my generation carry the great Yankees Stadium memories to our children?
I have compiled a few pictures that really seem meaningful to Yankees Stadium.

Well, isn't this the most important part?
Very emotional for the Yankees to loose their captain, and right in the prime of his career.
He was very missed.
Babe Ends his Career
Whenever someone ends their respective careers, it's a big deal. But, this guy was arguably the greatest hitter ever. It meant a lot for him to bow out.
For a man to say, "Today, I consider myself, the luckiest man on the earth" while he's dying is amazing.
He "was given a bad break, but has an awful lot to live for."
In the World Series, too. Finally, a happy moment!
Jeter's Little Helper: The Infamous Homer
Jeffrey Maier, who now plays baseball himself, made his name by helping Jeter hit a Home run. Debate still continues as to weather it was a run or not, but it counted at the time.
Best picture of it I could find.
I think every Yankee feels this.
Boone Wins It!
Ball game over! The Yankees Win! The-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e! Yankees! Win!
That was a great game.
I love the way he finishes a homer...On his knee!
Fun to watch.
Good Bye, Stadium
Jeter's speech captured the night, this photographer captured the moment, and what a great one.
Goodbye, wonderful place.
