My first trip to Yankee Stadium: the pictures

Even though everyone knows I’m a Mets fan and that I now live in Queens, my first big league game since coming over to New York from England was to see the Yankees beat the Detroit
Tigers 2-1 on Saturday afternoon.

Yankee Stadium is fantastic – if you’ve never been, get down there when you get a chance. We had the most amazing seats for the game, thanks to my fiance’s father who took the whole family down there as a gift to us.

We were down the first base line just behind first, 17 rows up, which meant I was able to get some nice pictures. Have a look through and see what you think. If you like them, there’s plenty more from this game at my Shutterfly album.
