Despite rumors to the contrary, the season's final Yankees game played at the stadium last month was the last event to take place there.

There was talk that there would be a big final concert there in November – with the proceeds going to charity.

However, the Yankees say while there was some discussion of having a charitable event at the stadium, word of a concert was simply media speculation.

The Yankees say instead, the team will be making a $500,000 donation to the Baseball Assistance Team, a charity that provides support to needy members of the baseball community and their families.
