Yankee Stadium Opens
"The house that Babe Ruth built," Yankee stadium, first opened its doors on April 18, 1923. Over 74,000 fans packed the stands as the New York Yankees took on the Boston Red Sox. Baseball history played out many times in Yankee Stadium with the likes of Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio and Lou Gehrig. Although the legendary stadium was torn down in 2008 and replaced with a new one, the memories captured on that field are part of the bedrock of baseball history.
