"The New York Yankees baseball club will announce soon that it plans to build a new ballpark across the street from the current Yankee stadium, which would be torn down, according to Crain's New York Web site.
Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion, Jr., tells NewsChannel 4 the deal is not yet 100 percent complete on City Hall's end of things, but that he expects an announcement in mid-August.
A spokesman for Mayor Mike Bloomberg reassured taxpayers Thursday that they won't be paying for the new stadium, saying it will have to be built completely with private money. And if there is accompanying city investment in infrastructure, it would have to pay for itself so "it wouldn’t cost taxpayers a dime.""
