The original Yankee Stadium, known as "The House That Ruth Built," opened in 1923 and served as the Yankees' home until 2008. The new Yankee Stadium opened in 2009, and the team capped the venue's inaugural season with its 27th World Series title. This monolith, which retains some of the more beloved features from the old hallowed iteration, is a must-see for any baseball fan. Visitors can take a guided tour, which includes stops at the clubhouse/batting cage area (only during the off-season or when the team is on the road), the dugout and Monument Park, as well as the New York Yankees Museum, which offers a fascinating look at the history of the storied franchise. Of course, professional sports in New York City go much deeper than just the Yankees. To see the City's home teams (including the Yankees) in person, buy tickets to NYC sporting events here.
