Rockies vs Yankees 7/21/19
Rockies came out with a strong offensive showing early and often against the Yankees...which can’t be said too often of them over the course of their season. Blackmon, Arenado, Story, and others for the Rockies were fueling most of the scoring. Yankees did get a few runs, but they were mostly from solo shot home runs. Due to the George Washington Bridge traffic chaos, I didn’t make it to the game till about the 3rd/4th inning. The game play was still fun to watch.
Final 8-4 with Rockies over the Yankees.
I had heard from many people all over the country that this new Yankees Stadium wasn’t that great, so with that in mind I tried to find the nice parts about it. It has a Coliseum feel to it as you approach from the outside design. The location of the old stadium is used at green open space and ball fields for people to play on themselves, which NY can use all the green open spaces they can get. The NY Yankee accent was pretty funny to hear while talking to local fans at the bar in Center Field. I got to go with a friend I made at the All-star game in Cleveland, so it was a treat to see a familiar face in very populated NYC. I didn’t get a chance to try the special foods they may have to offer at Yankee Stadium. It was personally a treat to see Yankees lose since I’m from Georgia...and NYY are the type of team where almost everyone else doesn’t like. It’s just how the dynamics are of the team. It was also 1 of the hottest days of the year at the game, so very hot 1 PM Sunday afternoon game for sure.
