From the NY Post:
The Bronx Bombers officially moved across the street today into the new Yankee Stadium, where the team held its first workout in their new home.
“I couldn’t figure out how to get to the clubhouse, so I just said forget it and I walked down through the stands and into the dugout and found the clubhouse,” Gardner said.
Once Gardner did find his way in, it was tough not to be impressed with the Yankees’ plush new surroundings.
“It’s just awesome, breathtaking, everything here is first class and you knew it would be that way, because the Yankees do these things right and we are going to enjoy it,” said Gardner, who will be hitting ninth in the Bombers order.
His teammates agreed.
“Amazing, they did a great job,” Andy Pettitte said. I’m just thankful to have an opportunity to play here.”
Mark Teixeira said, “It’s got such a new feel, unique look.
“We have no excuses that we don’t have the facility to promote winning baseball. We have batting cages right here near the dugout, next to the clubhouse we have a great new training room, chefs to cook for us. It’s got it all.”
The vast clubhouse comes complete with five flat-screen televisions and Thinkpad computers attached to each individual locker. The days of posters of attractive women are behind; they’ve been replaced with screensavers of attractive women — like the one Nick Swisher had.
“Until you see this Stadium for yourself, the pictures do it no justice,” Swisher said. “You have to see it to truly understand it. Going out on the field — it’s like ‘Whaaat?’ It’s amazing, I’m just so excited.”
Unfortunately, for some, pictures will be the only way to access the new ballpark. Sure, you can stop in for a game, just be prepared to spend a week’s worth of cash in order to do so.
