According to the Yankees, Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi will be greeting fans in the Great Hall at 4 p.m. today.
I wonder if they would be doing had the Yankees lost 16 of 20? If you’re here early, stop over. They’re both good guys to talk to. I’m told this is something they plan to do once every homestand.
Meanwhile, I arrived at the ballpark early today and as I was walking down 161st Street, it was hard not to notice what a construction site the old Stadium has become. There are temporary wooden walls ringing the building and mesh nets set up to keep debris from falling.
The old field is entirely dirt as cranes work and seats are removed. It doesn’t look like it will be too much longer before the walls start to come down. If a building can look sad, that place looks sad.
