Seattle Mariners vs. New York Yankees, Yankee Stadium, Bronx, New York - August 30, 1998

These pictures were taken with my Sony Mavica FD-7 digital camera at Yankee Stadium on August 30, 1998. All images are 24-bit JPEGs and should be viewed on a 24-bit display. Quality is likely to be very poor when viewed on an 8-bit display.
