Farewell to the “House that Ruth built”

It was a historic occasion last night as Yankee Stadium, one of the world’s iconic sporting venues, hosted its last game. I visited it once, back in 1996 and saw the Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles (coincidentally last night’s opponents) to clinch a play-off place on the way to their 23rd World Series win. It was a memorable experience and as a baseball fan and something of a traditionalist when it comes to all things sporting it is sad to see it go.
