Also it wouldn't make sense for Citi Field because the venue isn't as well known whereas Yankee stadium is synonymous with NY. Just like the Chicago Winter Classic was held at Wrigley Field and not US Cellular Field.
Unless the Yankees have changed their thinking Lonn Trost one of the Yankees executives has stated in the past that the Steinbrenner Family would prefer to have a college bowl game at Yankee Stadium on an annual basis over hosting the WC. As far as Yankee Stadium having more cache than Citifield that is a no brainer but if the Pinstripe Bowl gets renewed then I don,t see any other option. Either way it should be in New York sooner than later.
