Here are some photographs of the old Yankee Stadium taken by Tom Kaminski in Chopper 880. They are in the process of taking down the letters on the face of the stadium. The letters that spelled “YANKEE STADIUM” have been purchased by Reggie Jackson. I wonder what he will do with them. 

This is what Reggie said: “I might build a Stadium at home [Carmel], light it up and make it with 100-foot fences so that when I am 75 I can hit a home run at Yankee Stadium,” Jackson said.

I think this is as bad as it gets. The stadium won’t even have a name soon…
