Yankees set 3-hour open house of field before Sunday's finale
NEW YORK -- Fans will be allowed to walk on Yankee Stadium's field for three hours before the ballpark's final game Sunday.
For the first three hours, fans can walk through Monument Park, behind the fence in left-center, and walk along the warning track in the outfield and to home plate. Field access will end at about 4 p.m., and Monument Park will close at about 6:45 p.m.
Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Goose Gossage, Ron Guidry, Graig Nettles and Bobby Richardson are to be part of the pregame ceremonies, which start at 7:05 p.m.
A closing ceremony for the stadium will be held after the season. New York moves to a new $1.3 billion Yankee Stadium next door. The first regular-season game there will be April 16 against Cleveland.
