The New York Yankees didn?t just change Baseball history when they acquired Babe Ruth from the Boston Red Sox, they also changed the manner by which the game is watched by building the Yankee Stadium. Also known as the ?The House That Ruth Built?, the stadium was incredibly constructed within 284 days only and just in time for the inaugural game on April 18, 1923, where Babe Ruth did a three-run homer. It was built on a 10 acre lot in the Bronx facing the Harlem River and the Polo Grounds, which was the shared home of the Yankee?s and the Giants since 1913. Since then, the New York stadium has undergone a lot facelifts but remains to be a prominent venue for other sports like boxing, football and soccer. It is also a popular choice for concerts, circus shows, political meetings, and religious gatherings. They also house a Monument Park, a museum that pays homage to exceptional players who made a mark on Yankee tradition.
