Yankee Stadium

A bird's-eye view on Oct. 1, 1941, sets the stage for the World Series opener in which the Yankees defeated the Dodgers, 3-2. The Yankees went on to take the series 4 games to 1. The stadium, which opened in 1923, is home  to 26 World Series trophies. But its life extends beyond baseball: Yankee Stadium has been host to a mass celebrated by Pope Paul VI during the first papal visit to North America in 1965, fights by Joe Louis and Muhammad Ali, rock concerts and an address by Nelson Mandela.
