A few other tidbits from today’s press conference:
The old Yankee Stadium isn’t going anywhere until the summer. They’ll be clearing out the area near the bat soon to make room for a pedestrian walkway to the new ballpark. But demolition of the old ballpark won’t be “until midsummer” according to Lonn Trost.
Meanwhile, the Yankees and the city of New York still have yet to come an agreement on the sale of
assorted crap memorabilia from the old Stadium. â€œWeâ€™re negotiating,â€ Trost said. â€œThey have views and we have views. And they have attorneys and we have attorneys. Weâ€™ll get it done.â€
I’m sure there are valid reasons for it. But why have the Mets already moved into Citi Field, started demolishing Shea and put their stuff up for sale?
