Yankee Stadium is a baseball venue located at The Bronx in New York City. It is the home ballpark for the New York Yankees, one of the city’s Major League Baseball (MLB) franchises. It opened at the beginning of the 2009 MLB season as a replacement for the team’s previous home, the original Yankee Stadium, which opened in 1923 and closed in 2008. The new ballpark was constructed across the street, north-northeast of the 1923 Yankee Stadium, on the former site of Macombs Dam Park. The ballpark opened April 2, 2009, when the Yankees hosted a workout day in front of fans from the Bronx community.
