Yesterday afternoon, my girlfriend and I went to Yankee Stadium and took the tour that the team offers. While we couldn’t go into the dugout or onto the field due to the re-sodding efforts taking place, the trip was well worth the $20 price of admission.
The tour, which lasted about an hour, started off in the Great Hall, went up to the Yankee Museum, then down to Monument Park, then the clubhouse. It ended where it started, in the Great Hall. While we’d been to two of those three places before, the tour was still easily enjoyable.
Starting at the end, the clubhouse was definitely a site to see. It may not have been furnished since we are in the very depths of the offseason, but that just showed us how damn big the clubhouse is. Some players had stuff in their lockers–Joba Chamberlain‘s was rather full, as was Mark Teixeira‘s. CC Sabathia, Derek Jeter, and Jorge Posada had relatively crowded lockers, too. There were already name plates up for Rafael Soriano and Russell Martin. We didn’t see one for Pedro Feliciano, but I’m sure it was there. One semi interesting note: it seemed like David Robertson‘s computer was missing or broken. Anyway, the one thing we took away from the clubhouse was its utter immensity; it definitely seemed wider than my house, that’s for sure.
Despite our repeat appearances at the museum and Monument Park, it was great to see both places without such a huge, hurried audience. The details were obviously familiar, but we were able to enjoy them just a little more closely, and that made them just a little more special. If you have a free afternoon and $20 to spare, definitely consider going down to the Stadium and taking the tour. Even if you know what’s coming, seeing it up close and intimately will make it just a little more personal.
