'Yankee Stadium' it will be

Because that's what was etched into stone and bolted onto the new stadium's exterior this week. A beautiful sight to behold, and a great reminder that we won't have to suffer from a corporate name. It makes up (somewhat) for Hank's verbal diarrhea.

How many non-corporate ballparks will exist in 2009 anyway? Not many. Shea will turn into Citi-Field. Wrigley is a corporate name but seems nostalgic because of age. Rangers Ballpark, Fenway, Camden, Kauffman, The Metrodome, Angel Stadium, Dolphin, Nationals Park and, of course, The Stadium. That's only nine out of 30. We are fortunate.
