Glen Perkins Doesn't Like New Yankee Stadium

Miikeee D.Correspondent IMay 19, 2009
Glen Perkins is not a big fan of the new Yankee Stadium, according to the Pioneer Press. Despite being a $1.5 billion project and the subject of praise from baseball fans around the world, Perkins is not impressed. Prior to making his first start at the new stadium in the Bronx, Perkins did not feel the same air of greatness that the old stadium possessed.

“It’s not a place where Babe Ruth and Joe DiMaggio and all those guys played; it’s a new park.”

Perkins states the obvious. No, Ruth and DiMaggio did not play at the new stadium. And yes, the new Yankee Stadium is indeed a new park.

Perkins’ start did not go too well, as he was pulled for R.A. Dickey in the first inning. Perkins lasted two thirds of an inning giving up six runs on seven hits.

Perkins really doesn’t like the new Yankee Stadium.
