What's the point?

Garrett SpainContributor ISeptember 23, 2008

Why are they replacing Yankee stadium? It's a famous sight throughout the city and the US. Sports just are the same without it. I really hate the Yankees and I'm sad it's going. So many great players have played there. Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Whitey Ford, Yogi Berra, don Mattingly, Reggie Jackson, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, etc. It's been there since 1923, it's been there through 23 world Series wins, 39 AL pennants, 15 AL East Titles, and 3 Wild Card berths. It was were Don Larsen threw his perfect game in the World Series. It has hosted 4 all-star games. Why build a new Yankee Stadium. It is pointless.
