(Newser) – Players and fans checked out the new Yankee Stadium for the first time today, and they liked what they saw. "Wow! I'm in love," one fan who said he opposed the new ballpark told the New York Post. "They did a fantastic job." The $1.5 billion facility officially opens tomorrow with an exhibition game against the Chicago Cubs. See a slideshow of the new park at left.
