Last Game at Yankee Stadium

On September 21st, 2008, the New York Yankees played the Baltimore Orioles in the last Major League game ever to be played in Yankee Stadium.

Before the game, a moving ceremony was held on the field where Yankees, or a surviving family member, took their position out on the field. David Mantle proudly represented his dad in center field and wearing #7 on his flannel pinstriped uniform.
