A 50,000-seat stadium in New Jersey might lure baseball's glamor franchise -- the New York Yankees -- from their fabled home in the Bronx. TIME sportswriter Steve Wulf says Yankee owner George Steinbrenner should think again about the prospective move. "This would not be in the best interests of baseball or New York City," says Wulf. "Steinbrenner wants a 'trophy ballpark,' somewhere to take his friends. He'd also like the extra revenue from the luxury boxes. He doesn't particularly care about New York or feel any great tie to the city." The $400 million stadium proposal would be part of the Meadowlands sports complex, which is currently home to the NFL's Giants and Jets, the NBA's Nets, the NHL's Devils, and the Meadowlands race track.
