Fascination with dirt continues

When Yankee Stadium closed in September, most of the players scooped up dirt to take home as a souvenir as did assorted cops, team employees and others who were on the field after the game.
Now the Yankees are having a private ceremony on Saturday to take dirt from the old Stadium over to the new Stadium.
This release from the team:
The New York Yankees and selected local Bronx youth organizations will hold a symbolic dual-Stadium ceremony on Saturday, November 8 at noon (rain or shine). The event will begin at the original Yankee Stadium, where several members of the Yankeesâ€™ 1998 World Championship team will join students from Bronx-area schools in removing dirt from the home plate area and pitcherâ€™s mound. They will then walk across the street to the new Yankee Stadium and place the dirt in the corresponding locations in the Yankeesâ€™ new Stadium.
It’s not open to the public. Not there would be much to see anyway.
