Changing of the Guard

In 2009, both of New York City's Major League ballparks, Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium, will be torn down after long years of service. Yankee Stadium, home of the Bronx Bombers since 1923, has hosted World Series games on 37 occasions, with the Yankees winning 26 titles. Legends such as Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, and countless others have called this field home. Meanwhile, Shea Stadium, home of the New York Mets since 1964, has its own storied history. In addition to hosting four World Series, Shea played host to the Beatles for a 1965 concert, which shattered attendance records for that time. For more on Yankee Stadium, click here.
