Now playing second base, the Pope


The New York Times takes a look today at how Yankee Stadium will be arranged for the Pope’s visit and Mass next week. Considering how few non-baseball events take place at the Stadium these days, it makes for a great read. The Pope will be standing on a platform above Robinson Cano‘s customary spot, and this graphic on how the clergy will give Communion to 57,000 fans people in 14 minutes is a good one. Watch out for the steep upper deck, they say.

    I like the “Degree of Difficulty” in the Communion graphic.
