Daily News: Philly artist explains what made him draw old Yankee Stadium with names of every Bomber who played there
The House That Ruth Built may have been demolished in 2009, but a Philly artist has made sure the original Yankee Stadium and all of the Bombers who played there live on.
Daniel Duffy recently completed a word art depicting the original Yankee Stadium out of the names of every former Yankee who played there, from Babe Ruth to Mickey Mantle to Derek Jeter.
The iconic image totals 1,465 names.
Duffy told the Daily News he is an avid Phillies fan, but the challenge of constructing a piece of this magnitude was simply too tempting to pass up.
"Essentially, just wanting to do the biggest, most epic baseball piece I could think of," Duffy told The News.
