It didn't. The old Yankee Stadium was called 'The House that Ruth Built'.

Alex Rodriguez became a New York Yankee in 2004.
Actually he wanted to be a baseball star but a stray bullet gave him a permanent limp so he decided to become a star singer.
because it was a folk song
Yankee catcher Elston Howard hit a 2 strike single to break up the no-no Sox still beat Whitey Ford 3-0 Ironically Howard would become a Red Sox player later in the year
During the Revolutionary War
During the broadcast during the NYY/LAA game on 8/9/08, it was discussed that Derek Jeter only needed 27 hits over his final 19 games at The Stadium to break Gehrig's record. Since then, Jeter had 3 hits on 8/15, 2 hits on 8/16, and went 4-for4 today (8/17). Again, if the info I heard is correct, Jeter should only need 18 more hits over the remaining 16 home games to become the all-time hits record holder in Yankee Stadium. Derek Jeter broke Lou Gehrig's hit record at the stadium on September 16, 2008. He now owns the record, that stands at 1,274 hits.
Babe Ruth was sold to the Yankees on December 26, 1919.
Baseball cards become valuable when they are very scarce.
