More on Yankee Stadium

Yankee Stadium was hailed as a one-of-a-kind facility in the country for its size when it opened in 1923. Over the course of its history, it became one of the most famous venues in the United States, having hosted a variety of events and historic moments during its existence. While many of these moments were baseball-related—including World Series games, no-hitters, perfect games and historic home runs—the stadium also hosted boxing matches, concerts, Jehovah’s Witnesses conventions (see record attendance) and three Papal Masses.

The stadium’s nickname, “The House That Ruth Built” is derived from the legendary baseball superstar Babe Ruth whose prime years coincided with the stadium’s opening and the beginning of the Yankees’ winning history. It has also been known as “The Big Ballpark in The Bronx,” “The Stadium,” and “The Cathedral of Baseball.”
