Yankee Stadium was a stadium located in The Bronx in New York City, New York. It was the home baseball park of the New York Yankees, the city's Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise, from 1923 to 1973 and from 1976 to 2008. The stadium hosted 6,581 Yankees regular season home games during its 85-year history. It was also the former home of the New York Giants football team. The stadium's nickname, "The House That Ruth Built", is derived from Babe Ruth, the iconic baseball superstar whose prime years coincided with the stadium's opening and the beginning of the Yankees' winning history.
