BRIDGEPORT - In preparation for the Yankees' home debut at their new $1.5 billion stadium, the organization needed some quick help from a Connecticut construction company.

Ray Weiner, the owner of All Phase Construction Company, says that his team made turnstiles, the gating around the bleachers and the rails around the dugouts at the new Yankee Stadium. He added that the project was completed in six weeks, less than half the time normally needed.

"People need a little positive energy these days and it brought a good positive energy for everyone to talk about it and feel they were part of it," Weiner says.

With little time and no room for error, engineer Scott Davies was responsible for taking the drawing plans and making sure everything was put together and placed exactly where it needed to go.

"I'm totally a Yankee fan," Davies says. "I can assure you, I'm going to point out to everybody that All Phase was part and parcel to making their opening day and the Yankees success possible."
