Did that Peter Max store even last a full season at the new Yankee Stadium?
Why would anyone put a art gallery/store in the middle of the ballpark? I'm there to see a game, buy a hat perhaps, but not to see artwork. want to see art, got to a gallery or a museum.
Couldn't agree more. For some reason, works of Peter Max and LeRoy Neiman are marketed as sports "art", and fans are supposed to "appreciate" that junk.
I suppose the flacks of the owners think we are dumber than average.
Thus far, they seem to be correct.

Archie Bunker: All I can tell you, Edith, is I'm surprised at you! Dragging me off to a moving picture like that! It was absolutely disgusting!
Edith Bunker: Well, I'm sorry, Archie, how was I to know? I thought it was a religious picture, "Cardinal Knowledge!"
Nothing wrong with tying to attract different types of customers, in theory, but its not gonna work in reality.
Sexist store. They should get sued.
Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.
If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

Saturday, April 29, 1961, Dodgers in town. Johnny Podres went all the way on a 7-hitter as L.A. won, 9-4. Frank Howard was the star as he went 3-4 with 6 RBI, with a 2-run shot in the 3rd, and a grand slam in the 5th, knocking Dick Ellsworth out of the ball game. Santo had a triple, and Ernie Banks hit one out in the 9th. Only 9,842 in the house.
Renovation from another era.
"Wrigley Field box seat patrons in the lower stands will find the Cub management made more changes for the comfort of fans before the Cubs' home opener. A portion of the lower stands box seats is being replaced at an estimated cost of $200,000. Chicago Tribune photo published April 9, 1950"
"Grandstand work on Wrigley infield is almost completed before Cubs entertain White Sox Friday in first game of Spring city series. Chicago Herald-American photo by Al Struck published April 10, 1950"
I always thought the brick wall behind the plate was original to the stadium.
