    I had a chance to sit in the Legends Suites for yesterday's game, and I got to say it's probably one of the best $200 I spent- it is absolutely INCREDIBLE what they give you!

    You walk in, and you can choose to sit in the upstairs or downstairs lounge where there are multiple buffet tables with really high end food, meats, seafood, veggies, brunch, free non-alcoholic drinks and a wine list..

    Then you go to your seats and there is waiter service with more free food and drink, some high end, some classic ballpark food... all incredible.. and the dugout lounges are great!

    Honestly, it may actually be worth the $500 for the cheaper sections. $2,600 is still insane though =)

    WOW. Sweet.......AND elegant. Something you can't say about many ballpark offerings that attempt to look high end, but end up looking tacky.

    Thanks to everyone that took pics over the last few days. This place seems spectacular. I was blown away by Citi Field yesterday and I heard that the NYS is even more impressive. It's going to feel like months between now and April 21st. I can't wait to see this new place!

    The wall is already cracking lol:








    The bathroom mirrors don't actually show the game, it's whatever the scoreboard shows:

    After the game, there was live music.








    And the ceiling was leaking






    This by Gate 4, if you listen closely, you can hear Gehrig's speech.

    Here are the rest of the photos.. I didn't post a lot of the closeups since they are more about the actual game than the stadium so don't belong here.. I got a lot of really nice action shots, esp near the end.

    The scoreboard is great, but one thing I'd like too see them add is a spot for the pitchers. After a while, I didn't know who was pitching for the Cubs anymore because they didn't post the pitcher's name anywhere. Scoreboard or ribbon board. The only thing I saw was pitch count and M.P.H. on the jumbo screen.

    Also, I had a hard time understanding Paul Oden. His voice isn't clear like Bob Sheppard's or Jim Hall's.

    Noooooooooooooooo! Your third video has "Silent Eye Joey" on the video board.... I guess that means Cotton Eye Joey is back but couldnt do his thing because of the sound system being down. I am really not happy about this clown still being around

    Nice idea

    Wow the ceiling was leaking? They really need to fix a few things huh?

    I'm glad to hear theyre adding more tv's to the sides of the bleacher restaurant....3 on each side simply isnt enough. They needed atleast 2 more on each side, the people in the back against the restaurant wall of the bleachers simply cannot see them the way it is now.

    I really don't understand what Posada means about the screen being a distraction when the pitcher releases the ball. The screen is well above the pitchers release point (when/where the ball comes out).
    Even with a tall pitcher (unless he's Shaq's height) and most pitchers aren't, the screen shouldn't be an issue.
    Maybe this picture isn't an accurate view of what he sees. but looking at Melky and I know he's not the tallest player but he's not short either, the screen is well above his head from that advantage point. Again maybe not an accurate catcher's view but still.
    I'll just chalk it up to him not being used the big screen.

    It's possible that a 12-6 curveball may catch a bit of the screen.

    Mmm don't think so. Curve doesn't break THAT high.
    And according to what ever you believe some say a curve ball is just optical illusion. The ball really doesn't curve.

    Obviously the Yankees will need a new stadium, as NYS is crumbling.
