    I believe the frieze in the present stadium is not the original and it is not copper. The new stadium will have the frieze back up on the roof where it belongs.

    I think the correct answer is "The Playing Field". It was lowered several feet fr the new stadium

        Correct on both counts. The field was lowered 8-10 ft. The new frieze in the new stadium, however, will not be a replica of the original Yankee Stadium, as the fiberglass(?) replica was made to look for the '74-75 renovation. It will be a modern/futuristic interpretation.

        New question:

        This stadium was named after a beloved local sportswriter. It has since been renamed for a corporate sponser. What stadium is it?

                  How about the roof at Olympic Stadium? I believe if you hit some part of it or another you were awarded a ground-rule double.

                    The Catbirds seat? Forbes was before my time, but I know the Press Box was up on the roof of the park.

                    As for tallest point "in play' I would guess Coors Field.

                      I agree with that one. But since Mt. Davis went up,those balls have been flying out of there.

                          The roof of Skydome or Rogers Centre or whatever you want to call it is 100 feet higher than the Metrodome

                                It's The Olympic Stadium. Remember when Guerrero hit the roof. I think he was the first to do that in Montreal, wasn't he??????
