My trip to Yankee Stadium (Part 2)

You can read part 1 by clicking here.

As I mentioned in the first part, I had to do another post to tell you about this great Yankees museum inside Yankee Stadium. The Dodgers have to do this. Something has to be done! If you care about tradition and want the younger generation to learn about the past, do it!

Yankees Museum.

While watching the Yankees/Phillies game, I was checking out this booklet that a usher gave me. Inside had some great info on Yankee Stadium. On one of the pages, it has information on the Yankee Museum. I read the following:

The New York Yankees Museum presented by Bank of America - a museum within a museum - is located on the Main Level near Gate 6 and tells baseball's and the franchise's story through various displays of artifacts and memorabilia. Guests can access the museum on game days from the time the gates open until the end of the eighth inning.

I read this during the 6th inning. Off we went!

It starts off with a history lesson from New York teams. Yankees, Dodgers, Giants, and Mets. This was great. You see a lot of Dodger items!  We shot so many pictures on this exhibit. So look out for another post with pictures of the other exhibits.
