No pausing for progress

I just arrived at the Stadium and had to pause for a few seconds on 153rd Street because there were 15 dump trucks lined up to go into the construction site for the new Stadium.

One after another, they rumbled down 153rd. Then across Rupert Place and past the players parking lot and the press gate. The entire street muddy street seemed to shake as the trucks went past. Even on Opening Day, the building goes on.

If you stand there long enough and watch, you can literally see parts of the new Stadium go up. It’s amazing how big the place is.

I’m hoping the Yankees do another media tour in a few months so we can see the progress made since we were there in February. As somebody who enjoys the history of baseball, it’s pretty cool to be able to cover the final year in one stadium as a new one rises.
