Yankee Stadium Tour-

My Dad, Son, Daughter and myself attended.

It was really cool to see how the press box was set up! We saw where George Steinbrenner and Brian Cashman sit and an up close of Eddie Layton’s organ and office! We also saw the office of the man known as the “Voice of Yankee Stadium”, Bob Sheppard.

Then we headed down to the dugout! I can’t tell you how cool that was! So many games you watch and to think that we were sitting where a 200 million dollar team of baseball players sits was too cool! You’ll see a good pic of my dad, he was really paying attention to the tour guide who taught us all a lot about Yankee stadium.

Next, we visited the infamous Monument Park! This was the best part of the tour. We read all the monuments and took a bunch of pics. We also were able to view the monument that was unveiled on 9/11/2000. We were at that game live, when the announcement was made that a monument had been erected and would be unveiled before the game in rememberance of 9/11. That night was special because I had my name lit up on the scoreboard. Anyway, it was cool to see the monument up close and be able to take a picture of it for memories.

So at the end of the hour, yes, that’s all it took was an hour… We learned a few things about the history of Yankee Stadium and we were able to visit areas of the Stadium that we otherwise would never be able visit. It was worth the few bucks that the tickets cost.
