Yankee Baseball and More, 4/28/2000

These pictures were taken with my Sony Mavica FD-7 digital camera during a trip to New York on April 28, 2000. 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.

This trip had two purposes, first to drop off Amitha Perera at JFK Airport for a flight to South Africa, and to see the Yankees play the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium. All pictures before arrival at the stadium were taken by Rob Foulis.

The Thruway, approaching the Woodbury tolls.

Palisades Mall. It's too big.

We'll take the Sprain.

This is a big airport.

There goes Amitha, off to catch his flight.

Now, heading toward the Bronx for the game. This is the Grand Central Parkway in Queens. The other direction is much worse.

Worlds Fair stuff from the Grand Central.

National Tennis Center.

Shea again.

A tree in Queens with something probably much more interesting behind it. Rob says it's LaGuardia Airport.

The Triboro bridge.

Approaching Yankee Stadium on the Major Deegan northbound.

We made it, and with only 2 1/2 hours before game time.

The 161st St. subway station. Since we had extra time, we walked around the neighborhood some.

Signs to all the bridges from the back of the stadium.

Unused ticket booths and some of the NYPD.

Rob and a hot dog.

We took the opportunity of being there early for a weeknight game and visited Monument Park. Here is Darren looking at a plaque.

The retired numbers.

Rizutto, Martin, and Jackson.


The newest monument - Joe Dimaggio.

Another recent addition - Mel Allen's plaque.

Second and third for the Yanks.

And now the bases are loaded.

A left-handed batting Yankee takes a pitch.

This Yankee, who looks like Martinez in this picture, swings.

And the Yankees have a 4-0 lead with Ricky Ledee at bat.

Another Yankee rally, Jeter on third, Bernie Williams at second, and Martinez at first, with Ledee at bat.

After a Ledee Sac Fly, Jorge Posada comes up.

Jeff Nelson on in relief in the 8th.

To protect this 6-0 lead.

And Mike Stanton coming in for the 9th.

A Stanton pitch to Jose Batista with 2 outs in the 9th.

And he grounds to short, and the Yankees win.

6-0 final.

See, a combined 3-hit shutout.
