      • is that the same door they used in the pre renovated stadium? Maybe it's not. Maybe they put a brand new door in after renovations. Who knows? Was there even a door there in the pre renovated stadium?

          • You guys are funny.

            But let me ask you a question. If you were allowed behind that door to see the old catwalks would you laugh about it or knock the guy over to get behind the door?

            I vote for getting behind the door.

            I don't know, that's just me.

            Carry on!!!!!!:applaud:

              Photos of uninteresting doors from different ballparks:

                That wasn't the door to the catwalks I don't think you can get to the catwalks anymore.

                  See Post #187. The post is long but the explanation is there. It's from a former Yankee Stadium vendor. I'm only going by what I read here. I also posted a pictue of another door on post #249.

The ramp is above the Loge section and right below the Upper Deck. I tried the door and the knob turned but the door didn't open. There was light coming out from underneath it but I didn't hear anything on the other side.Here's the door and the ramp leading to it.
                    Uh-Oh. Another picture of a door to the stadium bowels. Ya think we are coming to the end of this topic when we start discussing doorways?

                    • What would really be great is if someone could photo the demolition in phases, then all truths will be known.

                      We'd need someone working the inside because when the demo starts they'll probably have half the south Bronx police-taped off to prevent pilferage of such vaunted original items as urinals, toilet seats and hand dryers..

                      • I guess this as good a thread as any to post this, but, why is there something covering that portal in the batter's eye section at the stadium?

                            Here's another angle of it (and the fact that it's partially cut off at the bottom of the photo is proof that I never noticed it before)...

                              That cover? No, it hasn't.

                              Anyone else?

                              • The cover is a fairly recent addition - it might be because to many homers were being hit into that one portal (it's the closest of the three to home) and were rolling down near the bleachers concourse. That's my best guess.
