Before Yankee Stadium opened in 1923, the Yankees rented from their cross-town rivals, the New York Giants and shared the space at the Polo Grounds. Threatened with eviction, the Yankees were forced to build their own stadium in the Bronx, but this move arguably could not have happened without the fame and popularity of their marquee player, George Herman "Babe" Ruth. Ruth drew large crowds and made the Yankees an astoundingly popular team, and after Yankee Stadium opened, it was known colloquially as The House that Ruth Built as a result of Ruth's starpower drawing in enough revenue and fan support to build the park. In Ruth's first season with the Yankees in 1920, the Yankees were drawing more fans than their cross-town rivals, the Giants, and the Yankees owners decided to take a chance on the popularity of their team. Because both the New York Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers had stronger roots in New York than the relatively young Yankees, building a new park - larger than most ballparks - on the assumption that the Yankees could draw 60,000 fans to their games was quite a gamble. But the Yankees also had Babe Ruth, who was the biggest name in sports at the time. After tenuous relations began developing between Giants and Yankees ownership, the Yankees decided it was time to invest in what would become the House That Ruth Built.
The Yankees played in the Bronx since 1923, and George Steinbrenner wanted a new stadium in the Bronx and that is what he got in 2009. There was talk about Manhattan and New Jersey, but the Yankees will always stay in the Bronx.

The 1921 World Series between the New York Yankees and New York Giants. All 8 games were held at the Polo Grounds.

The Polo Grounds, was the home to both the New York Giants and New York Yankees for several years, was operated from 1889 to 1963. It was located in an area of Coogan's Hollow, part of a farm and later, part of the Coogan Estate owned by James J. Coogan. It was located near the corner of Eighth Avenue and 155th Street just north of Central Park. The Yankees and Giants shared the stadium from 1913 to 1922 when the Yankees built their own stadium a few miles away in the Bronx section of New York City. After the Giants move to San Francisco, the expansion New York Mets played at the Polo Grounds until Shea Stadium was built in 1964.

A friend of mine is always meeting Yankees because she lives near Yankee Stadium. Move to a house that is near your local MLB ballpark. You could also buy season tickets near the dugout. If these options don't fit your budget, you can always streak during MLB games. This works better if you're a female.

The are plenty of opinions as to why Yankee management fired Yogi Berra as manager as the Yankee "skipper". Most people in their autobiographies believe that Yogi was a victim of circumstances. And, most fans, according to all reports did not understand this move replace Yogi with Johnny Keane. This analyst saw the move as a disaster. Here's why: Two days after the Yankees lost the World Series in 7 games, the announcement was made that Berra was gone as manager. Two reasons were floated to the newspapers. One was that Yogi was too "old". This of course was nonsense. The other reason was that there were poor communications between Berra and the "Clubhouse". Firing a manager after his first year, even if he lost the World Series in 7 games was unheard of. The Yankees had and still have a huge & loyal fan base. This is based on the many baseball legends who played for the team: From Babe Ruth to Lou Gehrig, and Joe DiMaggio to Mickey Mantle and yes Yankee star, Yogi Berra
