I guess the timeliness of this post is a testament to how busy I’ve been with moving back to Pennsylvania (that’s best left for a subsequent post), transferring a corporation, and working. Anyway, I thought I’d share a few shots of the lesser-seen aspects of the last game at Yankee Stadium. It definitely trumped the vibe of the All-Star Game in terms of sentimentality, but there were definitely undercurrents of reaction to the clearly Capitalist move across the street.
Riot police were there in full-force following the final out. I saw one missing chair–an attempt at a free souvenir–on the way out.
By the fifth inning, anything with “Final Day” on it was gone. So were most of snacks in the condiments stands.
