Old stadium, new stadium
The Yankees confirmed that Sunday's game will not be the final event at Yankee Stadium. It was reported earlier this week that a Nov. 9 ceremony and concert will be held to celebrate the stadium, though the club has not confirmed that date or accompanying details. [MLB.com]The NY Times has a related article written by Paul Simon.
There's a rumor that the Yankees are/were trying to get Bruce Springsteen and/or Paul McCartney to play the final show.
VOA News says, "The stadium has also hosted three Popes - Paul VI, John Paul II and Benedict XVI - all said mass there. Former South African president Nelson Mandela led a rally there, and there have been numerous music concerts there including by U2, Billy Joel and Pink Floyd."
