Throwback Thursday: Yankee Stadium edition
Now that the "new" Yankee Stadium has opened, it's a good time to look back to when the "old" stadium was renovated in 1974-75. Those two seasons, the Yanks actually played in Shea Stadium while their park was essentially gutted and remade.
One can argue that 1973 was the last year of the old park, not last season. There was little left of the original structure after those renovations.
Here's a video, albeit a shaky one, that gives an inside look of the work being done in the stadium back then.
