That’s the conviction that readers of Lasting Yankee Stadium Memories will come away with. Deep love of the American national pastime permeates every one of the stories contributed to this book by writers who tell us their most exciting or most touching experiences related to that hall of devotion, Yankee Stadium. Several writers do us a service by telling of their first visits to the newly built Yankee Stadium and comparing it with the old, admitting that although the changes might take time to get used to and that they continued to mourn the loss of the old familiar landmark, they were impressed by the improvements of the new building and found a lot. to admire in it.

Talk about Lasting Yankee Stadium Memories: Unforgettable Tales from the House That Ruth Built


Marinara
Whe I was a small child, maybe 12 years old, my parents and I visited New York City. We lived and I still live in Oklahoma. I went to a Yankees game on the train, with several of us kids...really...it was "safe enough" to that then, I guess. The year was 1964. That was the first, and only time I've ever been to Yankee Stadium.

This book took me back to that night, when as an aspiring (but not too good) baseball player, I went to the Cathedral! As Billy Crystal and Bob Costas both attest, the grass had never been so green. The smell of the "tunnel" that lead to the field was old (even then), cranky, and smelled of cigars and old beer (I suppose). But inside that place, with the facade, and the size, and the monuments. I was just thrilled.

Many of the stories in this book are reminiscent of "my one and only trip" there. They are nostalgic, wonderful, raucus, fun, and take you back to the days of the Mick, Yogi, Torre, Skowron, and the guys. Some stories, of course, are more recent -- the night Reggie hit three, the years the Yankees weren't very good. In fact, a small aside here, I played high school ball with Bob Shirley, and there is a reference to him being "...not a very good pitcher by Yankee standards. Well, maybe not, but he's "the only Yankee," that i know personally. So that was kinda fun to think back on the old high school and college baseball days.

I didn't know all the story tellers. I don't know all the stories, but I "know the place. Been there, but once..." but I'll never ever forget it. This book brings to life the old place where DiMaggio, Ruth, Mick, Yogi, and other heroes of my youth played, and walked, and usually beat the living H*** out of most everyone.

I loved the book. I savored it. I plan to read it again come spring. And maybe again the next spring.

to me yankee stadium is a shrine to the greatest players to ever put on the storied pinstripes. i can remember watching rhe cbs baseball game of the week as teenager in 1961. the broadcasts (in black and white) from the original stadium from 1923 are still burned in my memory. i can see maris in rf, mantle in cf, berra in lf, boyer at 3b, kubek at ss, richardson at 2b, skowron at 1b, howard at c, and ford on the mound. read this book and let the nostalgia engulf you. happy reading! aloha haleiwa jon

This collection of Yankees Stadium memories is a wonderful read.
I grew up attending games and appreciate the stories of others who made the Stadium their baseball home.

What a great way to commemmerate the memory of 'The Stadium.' Many of the memories written about by choice writers exemplified my own personal remembrances. Short, graphic, and very well submissions by all.

Brought back some of my own memories. Very enjoyable read!
Ohatollia
A very good idea for book, I myself have my own memories of the pre renovation stadium as well as the post, and hopefully soon get to have memories of the new one. Any Yankee fan should like this book, I give it 4 out of 5...

Good personal stories from people who had access to the team and to the Stadium. A fun, relaxing read and educational.
