    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Final Score:
        Baltimore Orioles 3
        New York Yankees 7

      • Julia Ruth Stevens, the 92-year-old daughter of Babe Ruth, threw out the ceremonial first pitch to injured catcher Jorge Posada.

      • Andy Pettitte's strikeout of Ramon Hernandez in the second inning was the 2,000th of his career.

      • This is the final game to be played at Yankee Stadium. The first game at Yankee Stadium was on on April 18, 1923, when Babe Ruth homered in a 4-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox.

        To celebrate the occasion, the Yankees held a 65-minute pregame ceremony during which many Yankee greats, including six Hall of Famers, appeared on the field.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Former Yankee Bernie Williams: I think it was more the people than the stadium. People talk a lot about the magic and the aura, but what really made the stadium was the fans. Concrete doesn't talk back to you. Chairs don't talk back to you. It's the people that are there, that root for you day in and day out, that's what makes this place magical.

      • Baltimore Manager Dave Trembley: It was kind of like the seventh game of the World Series, the Super Bowl, the Mardi Gras. It was everything rolled into one.

      • (addressing the crowd at the end of the game while surrounded by his teammates)
        Derek Jeter: Take the memories from this stadium, add it to the new memories that come with the new Yankee Stadium and continue to pass them on from generation to generation. We just want to take this moment to salute you, the greatest fans in the world.

      • Andy Pettitte: I'm very, very thankful that we were able to win the game.
