You Feel That? It's the New Yankee Stadium Turning into “Our Home”

Entering this season, many fans were worried that the new Yankee Stadium wouldn’t have that “home” like feel to it. Since April, they’ve had a drop in home runs, more fans attending the games, and an exciting playoff run to be excited about. Let’s not forget about those 15 walk off hits they had in the Bronx.

People made it sound like this wouldn’t be a place that would scare opposing teams. Sure, it doesn’t have the aura and mystique that the old stadium had, but that doesn’t mean it won’t get that. The other stadium had such long history, so it’s hard to compare the two

The inaugural season at the “House That George Built” has come to an end, and you can say that it was a successful one. The Yankees had a 57-24 record in their new park, which was the best home record in baseball.

The thing this stadium doesn’t have just yet is Postseason baseball, and a World Series Championship banner. Those memories will come. The first postseason game at the new ballpark will be this coming up Wednesday. There is nothing like October Baseball….especially in The Bronx.
