From The NYT Bats Blog:
The Yankees announced Sunday that they will open the stadium field level, along with the Great Hall, on Monday afternoon to allow fans to watch the team’s game against the Angels in Anaheim. The decision to open the stadium was made after the Yankees consulted with Ruben Diaz Jr., the Bronx borough president.
“We wanted to provide a place for our fans to come together to cheer for our team even if the game itself is taking place across the country,” Hal Steinbrenner, the team’s managing general partner, said in a news release. “This is a way of saying thank you for their continued support.”
The team said that turnstiles between Gates 4 and 6 will open at 3:30 p.m. for the 4:13 p.m. game. Food and concession stands will be open. NYY Steak and Hard Rock Café will also be open.
This is a nice gesture by the Yankees. I wonder how large a turnout there might be, considering the cold weather. I know that if I was in NY this week, I would likely go, but I am curious to see how many would brave the elements to see a game they could watch from the comforts of their homes.
