    That would be so awkward if torre did it considering he's managing the dodgers right now

    Definitely too awkward now that he left a bad taste in the mouth of Yankee fans. But if he didn't publish that book, I think it would be a nice way for the Yankees and Joe Torre to each show New York that no bridges were burned (even though that's probably not the case).

    Unless they can raise the Babe, Mickey or Joe D from the dead, it HAS to be Yogi.

    The only acceptable substitute would be Whitey pitching and Yogi catching.

    On April 16 The Great Author and his bench coach Mattingly will be in Los Angeles earning a living with their employer, the Dodgers.

    And Tino, George is in a wheelchair and barely cognizant of his surroundings. His closely guarded Opening Day visit to the New Stadium will be his only one this year, and I wouldn't be surprised that it will be his only one ever.

    It will be Whitey and Yogi, either both throwing to current Yankees or one to the other. Couldn't be otherwise.

    What about George Costanza? He did work for the Yankees.

    Miserable people (assuming that he is) still can say valid things. Wallace is a Yankee hater. If being miserable gets in the way of his writing, why wasn't he so harsh on the finished product at NYS as well, the actual stadium itself (though he did criticize the financial end of it)?

    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 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.

    3 videos I took:

    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?

  25. #1575
    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.
