Yankee Stadium in Black-and-White
Posted by: Keir Graff

The September 1 issue of Booklist, featuring our annual Spotlight on Sports, is in the mail. And while on the North Side of Chicago another baseball season circles the drain (the South Siders are at least within shouting distance of the pennant), we find ourselves wistfully watching other teams that actually have winning traditions. Certainly, come the postseason, we won’t have much choice in who we watch.

While the Yankees may have beaten the Cubs two out of three games in their rare Wrigley Field meeting earlier this year,  at least OUR beloved old ballpark is still standing. Yankees fans who want to reminisce about the original Yankee Stadium can do so in the pages of Jon Plasse’s The Stadium. The photographer (seen here in an amusingly out-of-focus snap) graciously provided us with one of his striking black-and-white images that doesn’t appear in the book.

Now, I’m no Yankees fan, but if Brian Cashman wants to be the Cubs GM next year, then color me in pinstripes.
