Yankee Stadium, June 17, 2000

These pictures were taken with my Sony Mavica FD-7 digital camera at Yankee Stadium on June 17, 2000 for the game between the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees. 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 view from Section U5, Row X -- the very top row of the upper deck.

Anne, Chris, and Darren in our seats, all the way at the top.

Lots of seats in front of us.

Section U5 before the game.

The White Sox take batting practice.

A pole next to my seat.

Jake Westbrook warms up before making his major league debut.

Westbrook's first major league pitch. Strike 1.

The Yankees in the field.

The crowd has pretty much filed in.

Bernie Williams bats with Derek Jeter on second.

Tino Martinez bats in the first with Jeter on second, Williams on first.

Jason Grimsley on in relief of Westbrook, who didn't make it out of the second.

The wind came up as clouds came in, and papers and things were blowing all over the field.

The lights are on, as a dark cloud rolls in.

And the rain... the grounds crew covers the field.

The tarp goes on.

And then we wait. The delay was almost an hour.

A lot of runs and a rain delay makes this game which started at 4:35 go to the bottom of the 9th at 9:10. The Yanks rallied from down 10-3 to make it interesting behind 7 Williams RBIs.

Ready to start the bottom of the 9th.

Jorge Posada digs in.

The pitch by Keith Foulke.

More Posada.

It's dark now, and a good chunk of the crowd has gone home.

Willie Randolph in the third base coaching box.

Posada is still batting.

Shane Spencer is next.

Spencer takes a pitch.

He was out, so here comes Ricky Ledee.

Ledee dunks one in for a double.

And there he is on second.

Some good baserunning got him there.

It's up to Scott Brosius.

A groundout to third... And the White Sox hang on for the win.

That's a lot of offense.

What's left of the Yankee bullpen comes in.

And we all go home.

Anne, Chris, and Darren and way too much flash.

Emptying out.
