This Day In Yankees History 4/18

The Yankees new $2.5 million ballpark was opened in style as Babe Ruth hit the first home run of the parks history on this day in 1923. This is where the term "The House That Ruth Built" first started when referring to the original Yankees Stadium. This was the first ballpark to have three decks which sold over 72,000 Yankees tickets on this day. The Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 4-1 beating the Sox hurler Howard Ehmke.
