Following a brief introduction over the stadium's public address system, Rodriguez received a commemorative crystal from Yankees Chief Operating Officer Lon Trost and jewelry for himself and his daughters from owner Hal Steinbrenner.
"It brings something to the Bronx and the neighborhood that's been missing for many years and it's world renown, as the Yankees are," said Lon Trost, chief operations officer of the New York Yankees.
"What better marriage than the Hard Rock and Yankees; music and sports."
Lon Trost, the Yankees' Chief Operating Officer, also threatened that the team would be forced to leave the City if they could not be assured a new stadium by he start of the 2009 season. (Apparently, by 2009, stadium facilities must comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and other comparable state and city laws.)
