Pinstripe Bowl Comes to the Bronx

The old Yankee Stadium had it’s share of historic moments, both sports and non-sports related. From the Pope to Giants football, many non-baseball events took place in the House that Ruth Built. Now it looks like the New Yankee Stadium will have a few of it’s own.

In 2010, Yankee Stadium will host the inaugural New Era Pinstripe Bowl on December 30th, 2010. The event, sponsored by New Era, will feature a game between a big east team with the third-best conference  and the Big 12 team with the sixth best record (that is, after removing any participants in the BCS Bowl).

“We’re very excited to be hosting the Pinstripe Bowl,” Yankees managing partner Hal Steinbrenner said. “Two great football conferences, the Big 12 and the Big East. … We all know the old tradition that’s held across the street is a rich history. Most of it is baseball, but there’s football there, too.”

Yankee Stadium will also host a regular-season college football game between Notre Dame and Army on Nov 20th, as well as a series of Army games sometime in the future.

    This sucks. As a hockey fan, I would much rather see the Winter Classic come to the Bronx.
