The Yankees Fans' Cry To Save Old Yankee Stadium Gate 2 May Just Be Understandable



In 1915, Braves Field was completed in Boston's Allston-Brighton Area. In 1953, the Braves moved to Milwaukee, selling Braves Field to Boston University. Currently, the Right Field Grandstand & Old Ticket Offices remain, so there is some continuous history of a former MLB Park other than Fenway Park in Boston, still being used for Sporting Events.

In regards to New York City Parkland being restored on the site of the prior two Yankee Stadiums, on River Avenue between West 157th & 161st Streets, it may just be a good idea to keep Yankee Stadium Gate Two, about the only part of the two Yankee Stadiums not to have an elevator bank in front of it, as well as being the ONLY Part to have been part of both Yankee Stadiums, standing in order to remind fans of what stood there over the years.

Besides, who needs another plaque on a site, anyway as Gate Two would fit in nicely with Heritage Field!

I agree. We too often toss out history aside when saving a it of it wouldn't be all that hard to do.

True, Jim! In fact a stairway called The Brush Steps, leading down to The Polo Grounds, is all that's left of that Ballpark. At least it is something if not much.
