Previously Polo Fields in northern Manhattan had been the New York Yankees' home until tensions between them and the New York Giants (now based in San Francisco) escalated as the Yankees began to draw increasingly larger crowds after acquiring Babe Ruth in 1920. After moving to the Bronx the Yankees would go on to win their first World Series during the stadiums inaugural season. Construction for the New Yankee Stadium began on August 16, 2006 and the original stadium's final game was held on September 21, 2008; after demolition of the stadium the location was converted into Heritage Field park, which was opened to the public on June 29, 2010. Starting in 1980, Jim Dow's interest in capturing "human ingenuity and spirit" in endangered regional traditions lead him to take a series of color panoramic views of empty baseball stadiums across North America. Over the course of his career he has documented more than two hundred major and minor league fields in the United States and Canada using an 8" x 10" camera; twenty-six of his panoramic prints became an installation for the National Gallery's Collection of Photography.Dow earned a BFA and an MFA in graphic design and photography from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1965 and 1968 respectively.
