The Return of the Siren

That familiar sound after a Yankee hits a home run in Yankee Stadium has returned.

It was like clockwork years ago. Home run, siren, Westminster chimes. But somewhere around 2003, it disappeared.

I'm not sure when exactly it happened, but I noticed the siren had returned yesterday. In any event, it's a recent change as it wasn't present last week against Pittsburgh.

Sure it's a minor thing, but I always enjoyed it. It's also far less tacky than some stupid giant flashing apple popping up out of a top hat.

that apple is an embarrassment to me as a new yorker. it's an act of aesthetic aggression.

Anybody know what they use for the siren in Yankee Stadium? That thing is crazy cool sounding. It has a lot more frequency range than you're typical air raid siren. I'd love a WAV or MP3 of it if anyone has one!
