They'll only see Heritage Field and Macombs Dam Park in passing, on their way to and from Yankee games - it's not like they'll be making special trips on non-game days to use these facilities for their weekend recreation. Why should they, when they probably have nice parkland in their own communities that they can avail themselves of?

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!"
