Only a year after they changed Baseball forever with the purchase of Babe Ruth from the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees made another buy that would forever change the way the game was watched. Yankee Stadium opened for its inaugural game on April 18, 1923 versus the Boston Red Sox.
Because it was widely recognized that Babe Ruth's tremendous drawing power made a new stadium possible, it would immediately become known as "The House That Ruth Built." Later that season, the Stadium hosted the first of 33 World Series and the Yankees won their first World Championship over their former landlord, the Giants. Of course, as the Stadium became the stage for a staggering number of World titles it also would become known as "The Home of Champions."
