And not one pound of Indiana Limestone was used in the Indianapolis Colts new stadium. Way to go Indiana!

Thank you Indiana. I've been a Yankee fan since the 60's, now back home in Indiana means forever at Yankee Stadium.

--I'm no big Yankee's fan, and I'm not a big fan of replacing Yankee stadium (the biggest ballpark in the major leagues), particularly if Steinbrenner received one penny of public money.
That having been said, the new design isn't bad looking at all. I'm still not rooting for the Yankees, but I'll appreicate the new ballpark.

I was wondering about that. Dang shame.

Good news from NYC though. Kudos to the Yankees for their good taste. Don't credit that to Steinbrenner though, heh.

Tell me it isn't so. Our hallowed limestone will now be ruined by the stench of Yankee Fans. I guess nothing is sacred anymore. Go Cubs!

Are you sure of that?

Might very well be possible, but can you provide a source?

The building is covered in brick. The source is my eyes.

Maybe they'll use Indiana limestone, when they finally tear down Wrigley Field and build another stadium. That stadium is a dump. The Cubs need a new stadium. Their fans should be comfortable, when they watch them lose and gag year after year....decade after decade.

I am a Yankee fan and I am very proud that Indiana limestone is going into the building of the new stadium. Although I hate to see the old stadium go. Just think of the history!

Actually there is Indiana limestone in the building of LOS. The accents are limestone.

We also supplied the limestone for the Empire State Building. Indiana is very famous world wide for it's highly functional limestome.

I also prefer skim milk in my coffee. Wheat toast, lightly buttered. Shaken not stirred.

And for supper, nothing beats Skyline Chili and Little Kings

And if it was the cost would be another $100 million higher and the you would be bitc-ing about the increased expense.

The stench??? Get a grip loser. The Yankees and NYC will always outclass the bozos in Chicago. How many rings do the Cubbies have???????

I'm surprised that Yankee Stadium architects didn't somehow find a way to use cheap, arsenic-contaminated limestone from China. I'm sure Walmart could've arranged such a transaction. Way to go Indiana stonecutters!!!
