Mariano Rivera Last Pitch At Old Yankee Stadium 8×10 Photograph (SGA Value Series) Framed Description
On the evening of September 21, 2008, the Yankees played the final game at ‘The House that Ruth Built.’ A sad day for many Yankees fans. Located in The South Bronx, ‘Old’ Yankee Stadium was the home ballpark of the Yankees from 1923 to 1973 and from 1976 to 2008. The stadium hosted 6,581 Yankees regular season home games during its 85-year history. The venue was constructed for $2.4 million (equal to $32,737,500 today) between 1922-1923 specifically for the Yankees, who had been sharing the Polo Grounds with the New York Giants baseball team. It opened during the 1923 MLB season, and at the time, it was hailed as a one-of-a-kind facility in the country for its size. Over the course of its history, it became one of the most famous venues in the United States, hosting a variety of events and historic moments during its existence. In 2006, the Yankees began building a new $1.5 billion stadium in public parkland adjacent to the stadium. Yankee Stadium closed following the 2008 baseball season, and the new stadium opened in 2009, adopting the ‘Yankee Stadium’ moniker. This great 8×10 photograph of Yankee Closer (and Legend) Mariano Rivera hurling the final pitch at Old Yankee Stadium is a beauty. The SGA Value Series is our best framed value and the perfect way to add this historic Yankee…and baseball…moment to your wall at a great price. Quality Framed, this is a timeless piece of Sports Art and great gift for any Yankees fan.
