I went to the Phillies game at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. Here are some pictures.


Old Yankee Stadium, waiting to be demolished.



New Yankee Stadium, across 161st Street from the old stadium.



The stadium from the lower level.



The concourse on the lower level.



The Great Hall, a half-open concourse in between the facade and the grandstand.



The New York Yankees Museum, located on the 200 level near left field.



Yankees' retired numbers.



The Mohegan Sun Casino has a restaurant in center field that doubles at the batter's eye.

The bleachers and scroeboard, with the view of apartment buildings in the back.



Monument Park.



The view, with the frieze at the top.



About a third of the people attending the game were Phillies fans.



Phillies fans made up about two-thirds of the bleacher seats.



First pitch of the game, from CC Sabathia.



Cole Hamels' first pitch.



Phillies fans in the bleachers. According to one guy that my friend and I talked to on the subway, he has never seen so many opposing fans at a Yankees game, including Red Sox fans.



Phillies win!

I'll second both of the above comments. Xzmattzx has a breathtaking collection of photos from all over the place. I just love that little Post Office at Gaylord!

Continuing with Cooperstown, here is a very quick tour of the Baseball Hall of Fame.


The Plaque Gallery







Delaware's only Hall of Fame inductee, Judy Johnson. Judy Johnson has been called the best defensive third baseman in history, but it is hard to compare him to others like Brooks Robinson since he only played in the Negro Leagues.



The 1936 inductees, the first class voted into the Hall of Fame. Ty Cobb is considered the very first inductee, since he received the highest percentage of votes of the five that were inducted.





Jerseys and artifacts from baseball movies.





Roberto Clemente's plaque originally had is name wrong; it should've read "Roberto Clemente Walker". It has since been changed, and the old plaque is preserved in the kids' section.



The real reason that I went to Cooperstown was to see the exhibit for the Phillies. Every year, there is an exhibit of the World Series and artifacts from the Series are displayed. With the Phillies winning the World Series, this year was as good of a time as any to finally see the Hall of Fame.





Joe Blanton's bat from his home run. Blanton was the first pitcher to hit a home run in the World Series in a couple decades. When Blanton hit that home run in Game 4, there was no doubt in my mind that the Phillies would lose the Series.



Joe Buck's scorecard from the infmaous Game 5, which was the first suspended World Series game in history. This game ultimately was the clinching game for the Phillies. Behind it is a Philadelphia Daily News print-out from the night that the Phillies won.



Newspapers from the day after Game 5 and the day after the parade.



Bud Selig's rulebook that was used to decide to suspend Game 5.



A rally towel that the Phillies handed out during September 2008 and throughout the playoffs.





I went to the Hall of Fame on the morning of June 5, the day after Randy Johnson won his 300th game. The board of active wins leaders had already been changed, being done so 30 minutes before the Hall of Fame opened. Jamie Moyer's 250th win, which came earlier in the week, had also been noted. An attendant told me that they change the boards for active leaders and all-time leaders once or twice a week, but when a significant milestone is reached, they change the statistics the very next morning.



A brick from Philadelphia's Shibe Park.



Odds & Ends

Fanastique, I always enjoy looking at the old buildings so much more than all the newer stuff.
