Let's Play Ball

We finally made it to the Yankee Stadium tour last week and it was definitely worth it! It was fun seeing the stadium and fun seeing Matt see the stadium:-)



Before you go in, it is made clear that you aren't allowed to walk on the field, pick the grass, smell the grass, lay on the grass...guess we were lucky to be able to see the grass at all. You also aren't allowed to take pictures in the clubhouse or jump against the outfield wall because the whole thing isn't padded. But other than those big rules, it really was a comprehensive and fun tour.

First stop was Monument Park.



Next, we walked around the field sat in the dugout.






The clubhouse was next, but as I said, no pictures allowed!!! But it was still interesting to see who kept their lockers clean, who had boxes of fan mail, and who is famous enough to get two lockers. (I will leave it to Matt to fill in the baseball names and technical details:-))

Finaly stop was the press booth. They have an awesome view! You could also see the Steinbrenner suite from here.



Our tour guide was great too. Not only did he have a killer NY accent, he looked just like "Cousin Timmy" in the double dip the chip episode of Seinfeld. I was just waiting for George to pop out of one of the executive offices! I was also amused that regardless of how obscure a question he asked, most of the tour group shot back the answer like he was asking what day of the week it was.

This is a definite must see for Yankees fans and anyone who likes NY history and culture (yes, it's definitely its own culture!)

tours are usually only on days when there is an away game...but I'm sure he'd show up if he knew that you were on the tour;-)

I'd like to know why your orange Detroit Tigers hat didn't take the tour with you? :)

Sounds like a fun day!!

Normally the orange Tigers hat is proudly displayed on my head. But I decided to dress for the occasion:-)
