November Yankee Stadium sendoff scratched

The Yankee Stadium "closing ceremonies" that had been planned for November 9th have been canceled.
"The Yankees were considering having a charitable event at Yankee Stadium," Jason Zillo, the team's media relations director, said in a statement Tuesday. "However, the Yankees realize that the final event at Yankee Stadium should be a baseball game, which in fact took place on Sept. 21, 2008."
Many people, including myself, thought that sendoff on Sunday Night Baseball was the perfect ending and the tribute was great (except for not mentioning Joe Torre) and the Yanks got it right this time.

Let baseball be the final memory.
