If the game does indeed take place it would be the second preseason match played at Yankee Stadium this summer. Chelsea plays Paris Saint-Germain there on July 22.

Since its opening in 2009, this incarnation of Yankee Stadium has not only been used for baseball, but has hosted several college football games -- include the Pinstripe Bowl twice -- and boxing.

The Yankee organization said they built the stadium intending for it to be a multi-use facility, and they are keeping their word.

What else could the stadium host? Could it one day host the NHL's annual outdoor Winter Classic? That would seem a logical avenue for the Yankees and the NHL. We just have to see if it comes to pass.
