THE BRONX - Dirt from the old Yankee Stadium is making millions as memorabilia and residents are left wondering if neighborhood parks will see any of the cash.

Steiner Sports Collectibles have profited up to $10 million from the dirt collected at the old ballpark. The soil was incorporated in some 360,000 different collectibles. Prices for the pieces range from $19 to $150.

Residents say the money should go back into the community for improvements in locals parks and other areas.
