MY TAKE ON THE PARK
Replacing history is a difficult undertaking so when the Yankees
announced a new ballpark a few years ago, one had to wonder if the new
place could make one forget the old. I think they
Located right across the street from the "old" Stadium, Yankee
Stadium offers a destination as well as a ballpark. The Hard Rock Cafe as well as a Steak House offer fans and non fans a
place to go before after or on a non game day.
Once past the ticket taker, a greeter welcomes you to the new
ballpark, a nice friendly touch. Walking out onto the concourse, you see it. The emerald green field surrounded by a sea of
navy blue seats. The
concourse area is huge with plenty of room for concessions complete with High Definition Televisions
all over the area. The concourse runs around the park, never losing a view of the field except in the outfield area.
Cincinnati, you walk through a cement tunnel through the center field area, you will need this route to get to Monument Park.
Moving the upper deck, the another spacious concourse which runs
from foul pole to foul pole offering concessions, views of the field, and televisions throughout.
The draw back to the spacious concourses is the upper deck
is a little higher than most. Unlike the "old" stadium, it isn't as steep here.
The game is handled here perfectly. The scoreboard updates quickly,
the main video board is the clearest picture I've ever seen, and everything said in the park is closed captioned.
The out of town board is next to the main board with rolling
scores. I'll never understand why the Yankees don't want to keep out of town scores up for the whole game.
The line score in the outfield wall is excellent. Hard to believe
the Yankees are the team that keep the line scores up for the whole game.
Yankee Stadium is a great place for a game, but it seems I am
one of the last of the stay in my seat and keep a scorecard.
On a trip to the concession there is a whole group of people
watching the game and enjoying the Yankee concessions. The food court, the porch in center field, and the rail behind lower
lever, all places for fans to get a good view of the game and enjoy.
