There's Going to Be a Ballpark There, from: Bats - Baseball - New York Times Blog

As I have mentioned before, the Yankee Stadium is scheduled to death. As this baseball season evolves with it's ups and downs for the Yankees there is a looming shadow over the Yankee Stadium, the construction cranes of the new stadium.

I found this post at the Bats Baseball Blog from the New York Times. This post remembers a song from Frank Sinatra called "There Used to be a Ballpark" that reflects on how we will feel in the future when there is no more "The House that Ruth Built". How does someone looking for the tons of memories from the Yankee history would feel like? How can future fathers tell their sons "look over there, that is the home plate that Joe DiMaggio used to bat in"?

I'll leave you with a picture of the construction of the new stadium (click on the picture to go to the post at the New York Times).
