Happy Anniversary to Ed and Allison Lucas!
On March 10, 2006, the happy couple made history by becoming the very first (and only) couple to be married at home plate in historic Yankee Stadium.
Nobody had ever been allowed to be married on that hallowed ground. The Yankees had a strict prohibition on it. Lucky for Ed and Allison, “The Boss”, owner George Steinbrenner, considered them family.
Mr. Steinbrenner lifted the ban one time only.
He also went well beyond.
One week before the wedding, Yankee Stadium was covered in snow. An early March storm and frigid weather seemed like it might put a chill in the wedding plans.
Mr. Steinbrenner had his grounds crew clear the field and set the Stadum up for the wedding just like it was Opening Day.
