Yankee Stadium, April 24, 1999

These pictures were taken with my Sony Mavica FD-7 digital camera at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx on Saturday, April 24, 1999. 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.

The Yankees defeated the Toronto Blue Jays, 7-4. Ramiro Mendoza picked up the win in relief to improve to 2-1, and Mariano Rivera picked up his 4th save. Chili Davis hit a three-run home run to win the game in the 8th.
