New Yankee Stadium photos

Thanks to Brian Vangor for sending me a batch of photos he took at the inaugural game at New Yankee Stadium yesterday. Five of them are now posted on that page, including the one below. The outcome of the game was a drag for New York fans, but at least they got to enjoy beautiful weather. Today, the Bronx Bombers lived up to their name, getting five home runs in a close win over the Indians, 6-5. (see All five homers went to right field, and I noticed that Derek Jeter's go-ahead homer in the eighth inning only cleared the right field wall by about ten feet or so. I estimate it traveled about 350 feet total. Babe Ruth would have been very happy playing in New Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees' bullpen, the new Monument Park, and the "Bleachers Cafe" and "Mohegan Sun Sports Bar" are visible below the super-sized video scoreboard. Photo courtesy of Brian Vangor.

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
