Sunday, September 30th, 1973 And Beyond

In the last game ever played in the Original, 50 Year Old Yankee Stadium in The Bronx, over 32K payed their way into the old Ballpark. Marvin Lane, Detroit Tigers Rightfielder, was the Last Visiting Player, ever, to homer in Yankee Stadium, in the Top of the 7th Inning. It was Marvin's 1st Major League Homer and it was off Fritz Peterson:

In the Bottom of the 7th Inning with only 9 At Bats, and with Thurman Munson sitting this game out, Duke Sims, the day's Starting Catcher, hit the FINAL Home Run in The Aged and Venerable Yankee Stadium I;

The Monument Plaques were stored away, not appearing at the Last Game;

I wrote this because I knew that there were two Home Runs hit in that Final Game and it should be noted(I was There, BTW). There was no Post-Season at Yankee Stadium I, that Year;

BTW-There was The N L C S and World Series at Shea Stadium, that Year and Shea Stadium would be home to Mets, Yankees and Jets in 1974, and the NY Giants would play One Last Season in NYC, at Shea Stadium in 1975, along with the METS, JETS and Yankees;

Yankee Stadium II is ONLY 32 Years Old. NOT Every Yankee Fan is buying the 85 Year Old M L B-Yankees Hype. Thought you'd like to Know That;

Up early, huh? Me too, and your post makes a lot of sense. Me, I just want to see the Sox win this afternoon and for the Orioles to win big tonight in front of the nation. The combination would result in October baseball, against (gulp!) the Halos. Have a great Sunday, Mike. Congrats HAVE TO go out to the Rays. They held strong all season long.

I had that feeling, Peter, that this was the Case. Tampa Bay made a lot of good moves:

The Red Sox virtually rested on their laurels;

THAT was NOT Good.
