The Fans Can't Really Support This

The new stadium will be built just north of the existing facility in the Bronx, and is designed to seat 50,800. That's smaller than the current capacity of 57,478, but the new ballpark will have more luxury suites.
No other stadium hosted more superstars than Yankee Stadium in Bronx, New York, but that won't stop city officials from wiping away 82 years of history to make way for "luxury suites." As if baseball couldn't get any more lame.

At least the $800 million stadium will be paid for by the team, a fact dwarfed by the reality that whatever magic takes place there will be seen by 7,000 less people.
