Yankee Stadium was a stadium located in the Bronx in New York City. Construction began in 1922 and lasted till the following year. The final price tag was $2.4 million. Building expenses were paid for entirely by Yankees owner, Jacob Ruppert, who was eager to have his own stadium after having shared the Polo Grounds with the New York Giants for the previous 10 years. At the time, the arena was hailed as a one-of-a-kind facility.
