About the Art: Thom has created Yankee Stadium to honor the greatest cathedral of the game in the Major Leagues™. This painting commemorates the ballpark’s upcoming Farewell 85th Season which will take place in 2008. Yankee Stadium honors the stadium that has hosted Major League Baseball™greats such as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig
and Joe DiMaggio, immortalized on canvas. Yankee Stadium features a total of sixteen N's as a tribute to the love he shares with his wife Nanette. The Highlanders were officially renamed the "Yankees", in April of 1913, after moving to the Polo Grounds, home of the National League's New York Giants. From Thom : No one ever forgets their first visit to Yankee Stadium — I certainly remember mine. The color, the noise, and the nearness of history… the spectacle takes your breath away. And now, in 2008, the greatest cathedral to the game of baseball, is about to close its doors forever. I could not let such a historic moment pass without honoring it in my way. And so, Yankee Stadium.
This is the original Yankee Stadium — the house that Ruth built — with its cavernous center field and its statues to the immortal Bronx Bombers. A colorful crowd packs the stands, and the Yankees of yore take the field. Because this is a distant view, you can people the field with Yankee heroes of your choosing. Could that be Lou Gehrig
on first base? Babe Ruth in right field? Joe DiMaggio patrolling center? Or maybe it’s Mickey Mantle in center and Roger Maris in right. It could even be contemporaries —Derek Jeter at short and A-Rod at third. For eighty-five years, some of the greatest players in the game have called Yankee Stadium home. Now you can bring this Field of Dreams into your home. - Thomas Kinkade
