This Day In Yankees History 6/15

On this day in 2005 owner George Steinbrenner, with the support of Governer George Pataki and Mayor Michael Bloomberg, announced that the Yankees would be building a new Yankees Stadium. The Yankees would initially finance the entire building which was originally slated to be $800 million but went over that after everything was said and done. The new stadium as we all know would mirror the old stadium and would house over 51,000 people.
