Whether you are into sports or not, most people can at least connect to the American pastime for the social aspect. While watching a game on the big screen is always fun, nothing quite compares to being at your favorite baseball park and watching one live. This year, we are thrilled to announce the addition of three iconic baseball stadiums to our MLB Collection: Wrigley Field, Fenway Park and Yankee Stadium.
Home of the Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees — yes, we understand how unusual it is to have all three of those in one sentence — these parks are fields where dreams were made, world series were won and fans got lost in the excitement of rooting for the home team. All three bangles are available in Russian Gold and Russian Silver in Alex and Ani stores and online at www.alexandani.com for $32.
About the parks:
Wrigley Field: Opened in 1914, and originally named Weeghman Park, Wrigley Field is the home of the Chicago Cubs. Nicknamed the “Friendly Confines,” Wrigley is the oldest Federal League baseball stadium still standing and one of the smallest ballparks in the Major League. Known for its iconic ivy-covered outfield walls, Wrigley Field is a fierce defender of tradition as it still uses manual scoreboards and raises colored flags to announce a previous game win or loss.
Fenway Park: The home of the Red Sox since 1912, Fenway Park is the oldest Major League ballpark still in use. Built in Boston on marshland known as “the Fens,” this richly traditional stadium remains true to its classic park construction. An icon of talent and pride, Fenway Park is a testament to generations of fans that come to celebrate Red Sox Nation and experience the Green Monster.
Yankee Stadium: The new Yankee Stadium honors the proud traditions of the original stadium, which held its inaugural game in April of 1923, and was the first structure to be called a “stadium.” A place where memories are made and passed down through generations, Yankee Stadium has been an institution of excellence for nearly a century. To the fans of the New York Yankees, this stadium is the home of champions and the heart of baseball that beats with a fierce pride for the love of the game.
