Yankees set date for new stadium groundbreaking
The New York Yankees have set a date for the groundbreaking on its new stadium.
The team will break ground August 16 for the ballpark to be built next to Yankee Stadium. The Bronx Bombers hope to have the 53,000-seat park ready for the 2009 season. The team also wants to host the 2008 All-Star game as a proper send-off for the current stadium.
Meanwhile, last week a judge blocked a community group?s efforts to get a temporary restraining order to halt construction. The cost of the project is approximately $800 million.
