    Someone else here also had a good idea - just drop your keys or whatever and scoop some dirt with it when you pick 'em back up!

          Hell yeah, me too!
          Bats, they are sick. I cannot hit curveball. Straightball I hit it very much. Curveball, bats are afraid. I ask Jobu to come, take fear from bats. I offer him cigar, and rum. He will come.

            I'm sure ESPN will devote 10 hours that day to it. I'll catch some of it there, because I am a baseball fan.

              I am glad you are an admirer, or shall I say enthusiast, of the Base Ball because that will aid you greatly in your position, or role, if you will, as a Moderator in a forum devoted to the topic of the Base Ball.

It may be harder to get a ticket, but it's not going to be insanely more expensive to see a game. Definitely not any more expensive or harder to come by than an average Fenway ticket.
                Well, that's kind of the problem. Twice a year now I spend 12 hours sitting in the virtual waiting room for Sox tickets. I don't mind standing room, so that's why I'm able to attend 15-20 games a season, but it also means I have to plan what I'm going to be doing in September, from November.

                So, because they decided to drastically decrease seating, stubhub is going to become a far greater source for tickets, especially while everyone is still enamored with the new stadium smell. While a bleacher seat might be $12, what are the chances you can get multiple bleacher seats? That $12 ticket becomes $60 very quickly on stub hub.

                Again, none of this could happen, I guess. But as someone who is intimately familiar with using and manipulating the toughest ticket situation in baseball up here in Boston, it could get ugly.

                  That's not the last tour date. There is at least one tour in Nov in conjunction with a private function at the stadium. I'm guessing they won't let people take any dirt because if they open the door a little, people would go overboard and try to bring shovels. Perhaps one can hope for rain during a tour and wear hiking boots so that mud will cake to the bottom? Its funny...when I was a kid I scopped up dirt during a game at the stadium (1976 or 1977). My parents tossed it out within a week!

                      Her parents were Red Sox fans.
                      I see great things in baseball. It's our game - the American game.

                      • Pics!

                        Found this on flickr.

                        looks like they started digging up the grass in the infield, along with the Yankee Logo. Whats stranger though, is that along the first base line, there appears to be...A WORLD SERIES LOGO? can anyone explain this? were they thinking about preserving Yankee Stadium so they could hold the WS there every year? (Thats a joke, but seriously, that would be awesome).

                        EDIT: Also looks like the ads in the back are older versions of the ads that were up this year...fleet doesn't even exist anymore!

                        • have you considered the fact that this picture may probably have been taken in 2003....

                              It's the World Series 2003 logo.

                              • no duh. i was pointing out the obvious that the picture was from 2003 when Anubis2051 thought this picture was taken recently for some unknown reason.
