    being a yankee fan for almost half of my life, and knowing that the stadium is closing this season i had to have this book. its full of history and covers everything from Ruths induction of the stadium to Gehrigs emotional speech to Jeters spectacualar 2000 season. it also showcases the events not sport related to the stadium, and has really grat picture. i thought it was a fitting tribute to the history of Yankee stadium.

    If you're a Yankee fan, or just like sports history, it's a great book that comes with a DVD no less. Well, worth it.
