The fact is, "house that Ruth Built" had gone through such major reconstruction in the 1970's, (which sent the Yankees to Shea Stadium for a few years to room up with the rival Mets), that Yankee Stadium II was already no longer considered to be the former home of Maris and Mantle... of Gehrig and Yogi. The ballpark that, believe it or not, really was built because of Babe Ruth in 1923, was demolished 50 years later in 1973.
