Yankees fans have mixed reactions about possible plans for a new stadium
The Yankees could soon be saying goodbye to the house that Ruth built. The organization is reportedly looking to build a new stadium across from the existing one.
Yankees Team President Randy Levine says, "The Yankees are continuing the planning of a new stadium. The planning is advancing. There is no date scheduled for any announcement." The location of the new stadium would be at McCombs Dam Park, and the price tag would be about $750 million. There would be more luxury skyboxes, but several thousand fewer seats.
Fans say they are not happy with the idea that the Bronx Bombers would leave their historic home.
Along with building a new stadium, there are reportedly plans to build a new hotel, conference center, Metro-North stop and ferry landing. Mayor Bloomberg says the Yankees organization would have to foot the bill for the project.
