The future of one of Yankee Stadium’s most familiar landmarks is up in the air—literally.
At 120 feet high, It’s hard to miss.
The big Louisville Slugger outside Gate 4 at Yankee Stadium is actually a boiler stack fitted to look like a bat, complete with a knob at the top, tape at the handle and Babe Ruth’s ‘autograph’ on the barrel.
With the Yankees destined for a new ballpark in 2009, The Big Bat seems to have been overlooked as the club makes plans to sell off the memorabilia after the upcoming season.
We’re guessing Topps and Upper Deck might be wondering the same thing.
