The Yankees sent out this press release:

YANKEES TO WEAR COMMEMORATIVE YANKEE STADIUM FINAL SEASON PATCH IN 2008

The New York Yankees announced today that the team will wear a special patch on their 2008 uniforms commemorating the final season of Yankee Stadium. In addition, the team will also don a patch in honor of the 2008 All-Star Game that will take place at Yankee Stadium on July 15, 2008. It is the first time the club’s uniforms will be adorned with a patch for a full season since 2003, when the Yankees wore a patch commemorating the 100th anniversary of the franchise.

The “Yankee Stadium—The Final Season” patch will feature the main entrance of the original Stadium as it was prior to renovation in 1976. A “1923-2008” notation along the top of the patch recognizes the lifetime of the Stadium since its original Opening Day on April 18, 1923.

In an effort to be closest to the heart, the Yankee Stadium patch will be worn on the left sleeves of both home and road jerseys. The 2008 All-Star Game patch will appear on the right sleeves of both jerseys.
