No CC Sabathia fastball or Phil Hughes curve. There will be a different kind of pitch at Yankee Stadium on Sunday.

That's when Chelsea FC takes on Paris-Saint Germain in the inaugural soccer match at new Yankee Stadium. The game is part of the Herbalife World Football Challenge, taking place across North America from July 18-Aug. 11.

The Stadium is currently being converted into a soccer pitch for the event, with the image giving an idea of how things are progressing thus far.
