    Monday game 3 - Yanks to open the Stadium

    I just heard on the radio that the Yankees will be opening the Great Hall and the Field Level to fans who want to watch the Game on Monday. Anyone else confirm? If so, Anyone going?? The TV screen is bigger than mine at home.

    oooooooh that sounds interesting. if the game was at 10, the usual start for an LA game i dont think it would be worth it but if the weather is nice, i might just go out there. i love being around fans when theres a game on and getting to watch the game on the big screen, i like it. but its all gonna depend on the weather

    "fans can watch it in the Great Hall or in the open sections of the Field Level."

    What exactly does that mean?

    Wow, that's pretty cool. I have to work, but maybe I'll get there after work!

    I guess this makes sense - the stadium can sell more food, etc.!

    I'm sure it means no one gets to sit in Legends seats.

    If graduates from NYU arent allowed to sit there during a graduation ceremony, you can bet the house that people getting into the stadium for free won't be sitting there

    That's really cool. I'd consider it if I didn't have a meeting that morning.

    How the hell are they doing crowd control? It could very well be a nightmare.

    Sounds like a nice idea, but that occurred to me as well--there's only so many seats in the non-Legends sections of the field.

    Crowd control? That's simple. Just outfit the security people with night sticks and bust a few heads. Everyone else will fall into line.

    Crowd and flow control, I suppose. If like 60k show up, where will they all go?

    Good point. It does seem that there is no good way to estimate the number of people that might show up. If it is 100, no problem. If it is much more than 5000, I'd say there could be trouble. The fact is, there could be anywhere from a few hundred to tens of thousands and the Yankees have no way to know that number.

    They could barely crack 50K for real games. I don't think 60K will show up to watch on TV.

    I don't think that many will come but the "real" games you are talking about weren't FREE
    it is a great chance for some to get inside who wouldn't pay the ticket prices.

    Well, even if 40k come, there's not that much space in the Great Hall and field level.

    I guess they're not betting on thousands attending, but I wonder how many can enter before it gets uncomfortable?

    Might have to go. Sounds awesome.

    Re: Monday game 3 - Yanks to open the Stadium

    Guys, I was kidding. But realistically, I don't think too many people are going to show up, mostly because of the time the game starts. I would go myself, but I don't want to take the extra time getting there when I could just go home and catch more of the game.

    So do people just show up? Is it free? That MLB article didn't explain much...

    Are they going to show the game on the big screen in center field?

    Re: Monday game 3 - Yanks to open the Stadium

    This is a nice idea and I don't think a ton of people will be there. Lots of people work and many people likely have no idea that the Yankees are doing this.

    If I didn't have work I'd go, but I do have work. For those that do go: Have Fun!

    I've always wondered why teams didn't do this kind of thing.
    Life is good!
