Cool story in today’s New York Post.

An old letter shows that, back in 1915, the Yankees considered building a new stadium in midtown Manhattan. In a letter to American League president Ban Johnson, team co-owner Colonel Tillinghast L’Hommedieu Huston requested a meeting to discuss the possible location.

“We have canvassed the feasibility of the 42nd Street site for a ballpark,” Huston wrote. “Col. Ruppert and myself will be with the Club when it reaches Chicago, and we will be glad to discuss the subject with you then.”

Pretty cool stuff. If you haven’t already, check it out.
