Saying goodbye to Yankee Stadium

1:19 a.m., Sept. 22, 2008. I am leaving Yankee Stadium now, one last time for good. Farewell to this wonderful place. What an incredible day, truly the kind that you remember all your life. Amazing. I will never forget the fans’ walk around the warning track before the game, the tears on their faces, the pure joy and love for their tradition. My “they will never forget article” is on MLB.com. Above is the last
at-bat I photographed from behind home plate, Brian Roberts to Cody Ransom 3-unassisted with Mo Rivera on the mound. Right to my left was a female police officer who was mostly savoring the moment like everyone else. Below is my video
of “DEREK JETER! DEREK JETER!” after he was substituted for and given a curtain call in the ninth. We are highlighting many MLBlogs that are talking about the Final Act, and be sure to leave your URL with your own thoughts. Also check out the Yankee Stadium Memories blog and feel free to leave your own comment there if you haven’t already. OK. I’m outta here. We all are.

Updated 12:17 a.m. Tuesday: Gotta add this picture our own Mike Siano from MLB.com sent me last night. Those were his shoes after being on the warning track. He called it “special dirt.”
