It has been more than a year since the team extricated a Red Sox jersey maliciously entombed in the new stadium’s concrete by a Boston-loving hardhat — yet the hole remains unfilled, and officials have no clue what to do with it, The Post has learned.
The Yankees were quick to shell out $50,000 to remove the David Ortiz shirt when word of its burial surfaced in April 2008 — yet all they have done since then is surround the now-empty 2-by-4-foot gap with railing and a piece of Plexiglas.
The team refused to discuss plans for the hole — which was dug into a service tunnel behind home plate and is not accessible to the public — but sources said a decision has still not been made.
A cop patrolling the corridor Friday said the team may turn the spot into some sort of exhibit.
