Ebbets Field. Polo Grounds. Tiger Stadium. Comiskey Park. And, now Yankee Stadium. Unfortunately, diamonds aren't forever. Classic old ballparks are being replaced by new, state-of-the-art facilities with luxury boxes, high-end restaurants and valet parking. Nothing, however, can replace the old Yankee Stadium in the hearts and memories of a New York Yankees fan or any baseball fan for that matter.
Having opened on April 18, 1923, Yankee Stadium was more than double the size of any ballpark at the time.

Noted author Harvey Frommer (see About the Author below) has compiled an exhaustive account paying tribute to one of the last great temples of baseball.
