Who supplied key building material for the construction of the original Yankee Stadium?

Answer:

THOMAS EDISON

Thomas Edison had many inventions. After developing the incandescent light bulb, Edison entered the cement business in 1899. The Edison Portland Cement Co. provided the concrete for the construction of the original Yankee Stadium in 1923. According to a 1923 news report, more than 30,000 cubic yards of concrete, made from 45,000 barrels of cement, 30,000 cubic yards of gravel, and 15,000 cubic yards of sand went into the iconic baseball stadium’s construction. Maybe Yankee Stadium should have been called “The House that Edison Built.”
