The house that Michael Lancey built

The original Yankee Stadium, completed in 1923,  came to be known as “The House That Ruth Built,” in recognition of baseball slugger Babe Ruth, who played for the New York Yankees during that era. The second version of that stadium in the Bronx might well be known as “The House That Lancey Built.” Michael Lancey, a 2006 architectural engineering graduate, was the on-site project engineer for the new Yankee Stadium, which was completed in time for Opening Day of the 2009 season. He worked for Thornton Tomasetti, which specializes in high-rise buildings and sports venues, and provided engineering services for the Bronx bombers’ new home. His primary responsibility was keeping the huge $1.3 billion project on schedule.
