Yanks to don commemorative patches

Yanks to don commemorative patches

The Yankees' uniforms for the 2008 season will be displaying some special touches.

The Yankees announced on Tuesday that their players, coaches and manager will wear a special patch on their 2008 uniforms commemorating the final season of Yankee Stadium. In addition, the team also will wear a patch in honor of the 2008 All-Star Game, which will take place at Yankee Stadium on July 15.

It is the first time the club's uniforms will be adorned with a patch for a full season since 2003, when the Yankees wore a patch commemorating the 100th anniversary of the franchise.

The "Yankee Stadium -- The Final Season" patch will feature the main entrance of the original Stadium as it was prior to renovation in 1976. A "1923-2008" notation along the top of the patch recognizes the lifetime of the Stadium since its original Opening Day on April 18, 1923.

The Yankee Stadium patch will be worn on the left sleeves of both home and road jerseys. The 2008 All-Star Game patch will appear on the right sleeves of both jerseys.
