Should this template (below) be somehow incorporated into this big one with all the other Yankees info? Averyisland 14:54, 6 July 2007 (UTC)
where's joe torre?
I've removed Shea from the template for the simple reason that it was a temporary and not permanent home ballpark for the Yankees. Obviously, they played two seasons there due to the renovations at the original Yankee Stadium, but to include it here is kind of technical and may mislead the reader. My rationale for excising it here is the same as why Miller Field is not listed in the templates for the Cleveland Indians and Houston Astros and Giants Stadium for the New Orleans Saints. These teams may have played home games at the aforementioned venues, but they were never their actual home stadiums.-PassionoftheDamon (talk) 19:37, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
- It doesn't matter if it's an emergency or not; it's still a temporary displacement -- they already had their own stadium, which was under renovation, and played elsewhere just until the work was finished. Regardless of whether it was "TWO YEARS" or two games, residency implies an intent to remain indefinitely, which the Yankees never had vis-a-vis Shea. In any event, I'm not about to make a big issue of this and I do see that the Chicago Bears, who were in a similar situation with Soldier Field, have Memorial Stadium listed in their template. I am, however, going to go ahead and remove the perentheticals (which I added previously) to streamline things a bit.-PassionoftheDamon (talk) 20:41, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Robinson's #42 belongs in the Yankees template, even though Mariano still wears it. #42 was retired by ALL of MLB, and is thus in all teams' templates. The Yanks should be no exeception. Jackie's #42 is in Monument Park along with all the other retired numbers. Also the Yanks retired #8 twice, so it stands to reason that 42 will also when Rivera retires.

That's all well and good, but I disagree with your removing Jackie Robinson's 42. As I've written above, EVERY MLB team's template on Wikipedia has his retired number, and there's no good reason to exclude it from the Yankee's template. Also keep in mind that Robinson's retired number is mentioned in the main New York Yankees article as well as Monument Park. - Richiekim (talk) 23:50, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Team Captain to Key Personnel Section
I messed up the color scheme! I wanted to create a new template by using the code of this existing one, and in the process accidentally saved over this one. Now I cannot get this back to normal. Please help!!! Arnabdas (talk) 17:53, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
- OK, I fixed just about all of my errors. Sorry for all of that!
"Formerly the New York Highlanders"
Taking this out of the top of the template - according to the team's history page "Highlanders" was not an official nickname. If we're going to add unofficial nicknames we should also include "Americans" at least, and then the thing will get too crowded. SixFourThree (talk) 17:10, 12 December 2017 (UTC)SixFourThree
