Yankee Stadium opened in 1923. Dubbed "the house that Ruth built," Gehrig made just as many memorable contributions to the stadium's historical value. He was the first Yankee-- and first sports figure-- to have his jersey number retired. He was the second Yankee to have a plaque dedicated to him in Memorial Park.
