Baseball fans have their own concerns when it comes to the rumors of a hockey game closing out Yankee Stadium next season. From Ian O’Connor via NorthJersey.com,
A slapshot cannot be the last athletic act performed inside Yankee Stadium, not when the stadium’s only power plays unfolded inside George Steinbrenner’s suite.
Hockey absolutely, positively cannot be the game that closes down the greatest baseball temple on earth. Nothing personal, just business. The business of giving a proper burial to a building that shouldn’t die on a marketing gimmick hatched by a sport with no place in stadium lore.
The Rangers have a monument they can send to the grave in the near future. It’s called Madison Square Garden, and it won’t be around for much longer, not with every other team in the market moving into new and improved digs.
