    the pix of williams and cash reminds me of waiting for friends of my parents who were with clubs at oys.
    when the royals were in, there wasn't much of a crowd at the press gate - that and some of the specials knew us - we could wait inside (tenace pix) and even though we were just kids we could figure out the "code". if a guy came out with his hands empty, he'd proably sign.
    holding a cup in one hand, me might but only if he stops to talk to someone.
    both hands occupied, no way they just want to get on the bus.
    we were lucky, our family friends would sometimes stop a player etc. to introduce them to us - then we had 'em.
    this all changed in the '74-'76 period when free agency started and the busses were parked behind the bullpens. the only time the shea press gate was used was on getaway days.
    cookie rojas stood out because of his manner and attention for my younger brother who was about 7 in '71. he met larry in between games of a doublegeader in '71, we were using the manager's box next to the dugout and larry was unhappy that the royals lost another game to nyy. cookie walked by and noticed the crying kid in the home made royals uni and started to talk to him, a little later he offered to trade hats and tried on the store bought kids hat that looked like a yarmulke on his head. to this day larry still has the hat and runs into cookie from time to time at the trop' dome and clearwater when he works for the rays and phils/thrashers.

    A couple of questions

    1. Did Yankee Stadium still have an "outdoor" press box in 1973?

    2. What was the last stadium in use to have an "outdoor" press box?
    I see great things in baseball. It's our game - the American game.

    yes and no, county stadium had one that was partially "open". it was used extensively in the "major league" movie.

    in the oys box you had to keep track of what was going on, it wasn't far from the field.
    my dad was clocked by a foul ball in '57, my mom said he turned a nice shade of blue afterwards.

    I made this comment - probably back in the 3000s(around 2008) - about this looking like the "Blob" invading the Stadium. Nobody picked up on it; guess everyone here's too young to remember the film I referenced.
    RYS to NYS: "Obi-Lonn never told you what happened to your father."

    NYS: "He told me enough. He told me you killed him - in the 1970s!!"

    RYS: "No, I am your father..."

    NYS: "No, it's not true, that's impossible!!!!"

    RYS: "Look beyond my respirator pods and my upper crown; you know it to be true!

    Haha. Vin Scully calls the Loge seats behind homeplate at DS "fastball alley" because of the foul balls hit off fastballs that routinely land back there. The OYS press box looked about the same place. I'm sure it got its fair share of fastball foul balls too.

    I might not be old enough, but I definitely have seen the movie and I know what you mean.

    Interestingly enough, the head groundskeeper had a copy of the photo hanging on the wall in his office under the first base grandstand in the old place. You can make out some of it in this picture, taken 3 November, 2008.

    Hey Paul, can you post the original version of this photo, or perhaps a link to it. From the looks of it, there appears to be a much higher resolution available given the slight distortion in some areas. If not, no big deal; it's still an awesome photo.
