Last night marked the final game played at the more-than-historic Yankee Stadium. Obviously I don't need to share the number of legends that played there or the classic games that were hosted within those chalk lines since 1923, but it still needs to be marked as a very meaningful night in baseball and American history.
Personally I'll have to say my all-time top 2 are Yogi Berra and The Captain, Derek Jeter. Yogi is just my dude, his quotes are nothing short of legit, "If there's a fork in the road...Take it." And Derek Jeter can best be summed up in two words: Brand Jordan. There's a reason MJ pick DJ to rep his jumpman logo - he's a champ, MVP, the heart of his organization, and an all around good dude.
Sports marketers will miss Yankee Stadium just as much as baseball fans. You can sell out that place for a Little League game simply because of its pure history of the monument. Yogi was right when he said that Yankee stadium will never be gone or missed because it is in you.
