Spring has finally sprung and with that, the new baseball season. What better way to bring it on than with a collage of my favorite game and team to my favorite CCR tune.
About 1/4 of the images are mine and the rest are courtesy of MLB.
Also this year signifies the ending of both Yankee and Shea Stadium...
One is the House that Ruth Built. One is the concrete box where the Beatles performed in 1965 and the New York Mets went from chumps to champs.
Opening Day will usher in the last season at both the current Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium, as work progresses on the gleaming new ballparks where the Yankees and the Mets will play starting in 2009.
The old parks will go out with a bang. With the Yankees on the road in Baltimore, Pope Benedict XVI will celebrate Mass at Yankee Stadium on April 20, and the All-Star Game will take place there on July 15.
As for info on Shea Stadium...well I'm not much for the Mets, so you can just Wikipedia that.
