     The Yankees started to bring in some of the old hardware into the new ballpark today. They brought over two World Series trophies. The Yankees front office staff carried the 1977 & 2000 World Series trophies onto the truck. Tons of crates were loaded onto the moving trucks and were driven across the street to the construction site.

The state-of-the-art video scoreboard is completely in place, hovering over the snowy area that will be center field. Upon two of the advertising panels are blue circles reading, “Yankee Stadium, 2-17-09.” That will be the day the Yankees officially receive the keys to the new building, beginning full-scale operations.

Plans released by the City of New York have forecast that the current Yankee Stadium will be converted into a tree-lined park and playground area, featuring two baseball diamonds and a softball field for community use. The complex is tentatively being referred to as “Heritage Field,” and the project is expected to be completed by fall 2011.


Several departments will remain in place at the building: the clubhouse staff, information technology, ticket office and the switchboard are tentatively scheduled to relocate on Feb. 27.

Here are a bunch of photos from earlier today:

Righty Arodys Vizcaino(Rookie) is among the Yanks’ top prospects already, despite turning 18 after the 2008 season ended. He has easy velocity, hitting 94 repeatedly and sitting at 90-92 with good deception and a plus curveball. He’s athletic and should sit closer to 94 when he’s fully developed.

     Keith Law just released a list of the Top 100 Prospects in baseball. There is a total of three Yankees on the list. They are Austin Jackson #46, Jesus Montero #83, & Andrew Brackman #95. Dellin Betances just missed the list..

His reasoning for not putting Dellin on the list:

Dellin Betances, RHP, New York Yankees: Betances has a great frame and big fastball, but poor command and control and iffy secondary stuff hold him back. He’s all upside, but there’s a lot of development between where he is now and where he could be if it all clicks.
