Yankee Stadium closes tonight. I always wanted to go there, but I never did. This is one of the two regrets I have in my life. I suppose that’s a good thing. Mind you, I really wanted to go to the old, old Yankee Stadium – the absurdly huge, baseball eating park that Ruth and Gehrig and Mantle and (my favourite) DiMaggio played in. That Stadium has been gone for a long time, and in some ways the new one is a more fitting replacement than the one that stood on the original grounds.
Now, if only the Yankees can bring the new Stadium a team fitting the Yankee name and history. I would never have imagined that the last game at Yankee Stadium would be a regular season game. That’s something the Yankees management no doubt regrets. Good thing there’s always something you can do about your regrets. They can rebuild the team. I can go to the new Stadium. I can see about doing something for that other regret too.
