MLS Team Considers New Stadium Next To The Yankees

NYCFC, owned by Manchester City and the Yankees, will join MLS in 2015. But they don't have a stadium just yet. Until one is built, they're expected to play in Yankee Stadium. But it seems like there's a good chance that when NYCFC gets a home of its own, they won't have far to travel. » 8/30/13 12:50pm 8/30/13 12:50pm

Brawling And Boozing With The Rats Of Yankee Stadium

Lasting Yankee Stadium Memories, edited by yours truly, is out in paperback now. To celebrate, here's an essay from the late George Kimball. It's about Yankee Stadium II, Billy Martin, finks and phonies, brawling, and, of course, drinking with Bill "Spaceman" Lee. » 6/20/13 3:47pm 6/20/13 3:47pm

Yankee Stadium Has Renamed Its Craft Beer Stand That Doesn't Have Any…

We groused, circa opening day, about the Yankees' "Craft Beer Destination" that has no craft beers—everything there is MillerCoors—and only two actual beers. Guess what? Deadspin gets results. » 4/13/13 4:33pm 4/13/13 4:33pm

Everything Sold At The Yankees' New "Craft Beer" Stand Is Owned By…

I do not say this lightly: beer snobs might be the worst people in the world. But not even they deserve to be locked in Yankee Stadium for four hours, with the only unconventional option being this dinky and confused beer stand with four drinks on tap, all behemoth-brewed by the MillerCoors conglomerate. » 4/02/13 1:48pm 4/02/13 1:48pm

Yankee Fans Are Really Harshing Nick Swisher's Buzz, Bro

It was not a good weekend for the Yankees. Not only did they drop two games at home against the Tigers, they also lost Derek Jeter for the rest of the postseason and received minimal support from the fans in a sparsely populated Yankee Stadium. And you know who's really sad about that last part? Nick Swisher, bro. » 10/15/12 11:40am 10/15/12 11:40am

A Wee Bird Terrorized One Yankee Stadium Grounds Crew Worker

You just never know when a li'l injured/scared bird will come onto a baseball field and starting flopping and flailing before (kinda) flying off, but this one made sure it first made an unfortunate example out of a Yankee Stadium worker. Oh, and don't miss the part where Michael Kay thinks, if only just for a… » 10/02/12 11:45pm 10/02/12 11:45pm

A Red Sox Fan Pulled A Jeffrey Maier And Gave The Yankees A Home Run

We thought last week's minor kerfluffle, on Bobby Valentine's game of employment chicken, would be the last Red Sox update we'd have to do this season. No sense piling on. But the Red Sox can't seem to stop doing terrible things. » 10/02/12 1:45pm 10/02/12 1:45pm

The Market For Yankees Tickets Is Worse Than We Thought

Yesterday we brought you news of a spat between the Yankees and StubHub, "the official ticket reseller of Major League Baseball." The Yankees aren't drawing, and they can't even move their own unsold tickets because they're being undercut by StubHub. (As I write this, it's five hours before first pitch of David Price vs. … » 6/07/12 2:30pm 6/07/12 2:30pm

Alleged Red Sox Fan Gets Her Face Kicked At Yankee Stadium

Please, sports viewing world, do not judge all Yankee fans by these hooligans with their bootleg name-on-the-back-jerseys, they were just defending themselves from this aggressive alleged Red Sox fan who lost her way. The Yankees may have been listless against the Tigers this afternoon, but these fans had fight in… » 4/29/12 12:05am 4/29/12 12:05am

Just In Time For 9/11, Today Is Anthrax Day In The Bronx

The aging metal band will be performing at Yankee Stadium next Wednesday with Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer. And the Yanks' PR department tweeted the above photo earlier this afternoon with the following: "Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz has declared today Anthrax Day with a proclamation." So it is. And while it's… » 9/09/11 4:50pm 9/09/11 4:50pm
