    I bet that isn't the 1st time someone peed in the outfield. Knowing Ruth's and Mantle's drinking histories, I bet it happened more than once.

    • Gary,the same person. Hope she's not part of the Forum.
      Joe,what's really remarkable is that there are port-a-potties all around for their use, couple that with the fact that they know by now there is on average at least 2-5 people taking pictures and video from all angles throughout the day.

        Can we turn back the clock?

        • Wow. Two more days and the whole upper deck will be gone. I keep saying wow. A while back I wondered why Bloomberg, who I voted for and support, since he still has some Boston carpetbagger history sticking to him (gasp! was he a Red Sox fan?), couldn't make a grand yet relatively inexpensive gesture to his adopted city by picking up the tab on saving gate 2.

          • Here some of my iPhone pictures from yesterday (3.22.10). I didn't see anyone from baseball-fever there; the weather was terrible and drizzly.

            • The more I think about it, the happier I am that we bought tickets to go to NYS after the demo of OYS is supposed to be done. Could not imagine actually seeing it down to its last pieces of concrete in person. Would be too gut wrenching....

              • Any pictures from today? Did another section go wayward?

                • Two sections should have fallen today. I'm going thurs to see last Tier sect fall. I don't have the link to the DN Gate 2 article. I'm sure it will be on the SaveGate2 site soon. When we do meet for the last wall down, perhaps a toast after that at Stan's? Or the Yankee Tavern? Then we'll follow the dump truck from the site and grab ourselves some souvenirs.
                  Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen,and welcome to Yankee Stadium. Here are the lineups for todays game...

                    Gives a whole new meaning to the word "moat."

                      How about having the toast at the Hard Rock, inside NYS?

                        I'm thinking or hoping to watch the last section fall while standing on the 4 subway platform. At the front of the downtown or if it's closed, the end of the uptown.

                            No. That went up right around the midpoint of last season.

                              Yes, it was added late last season...
