Got this press release from the Yankees. If you’re in the Bronx on Saturday, you’ll probably be able to see this from a reasonable distance:

NEW YORK YANKEES TO UNVEIL NEWLY RE-CREATED EAGLE MEDALLIONS FOR MAIN ENTRANCE OF NEW YANKEE STADIUM

The New York Yankees will unveil newly re-created “Eagle” medallions and lift them into place at the main entrance of the new Yankee Stadium on Saturday (3/29) at 8 a.m. A crane will be used to hoist these medallions on both sides of the recently installed gold-leafed stone “Yankee Stadium” sign. The process should be completed by noon.

The medallions, standing at 7 feet 4 inches in diameter, were re-created for the New York Yankees based on those from the original 1923 Stadium main entrance. They were modified to appear more dimensional and dynamic in an attempt to capture a more athletic spirit. The originals were removed in the 1974-1975 renovation.
