From the moment it opened on April 18, 1923, Yankee Stadium was a phenomenon: It was more than double the size of any other ballpark at the time. And what was happening on the field was just as phenomenal. In the third inning of that opening-day game, Babe Ruth hit the home run he deemed the most satisfying of his career. That fall, the stadium hosted the first of the many World Series games that would be played there over the ensuing 85 years. "Remembering Yankee Stadium" brilliantly and beautifully documents the stadium’s career through a decade-by-decade account, a priceless collection of historical photographs, and, most movingly, the vivid, first-person reminiscences of entertainers and politicians, broadcasters and sportswriters, players and fans.
