A billion and a half
When the Yankees moved into their new stadium in April of 2009, they became the inhabitants of the most expensive sports facility ever built. At $1.5 billion, it cost almost twice as much as any other ballpark.
The money was spent on creating a monument to the glory of the franchise -- a huge monument at that. The footprint of the new park covers about 150% of the area of the team's previous home across the street. One reason that the structure is so large is because the concourse behind the first-base side of the park is gargantuan. Dubbed the Great Hall (below left), that concourse dwarfs any such space at any other baseball facility.
If you want lots more insight into this expensive marvel, check out our in-depth review that includes three-dozen photos, including the new Monument Park, the frieze, all of the entryways and more.
