Watch Game 3 on the big screen in center

Yanks take Game Two on another Angels' fundamental mistake
Holliday's top choice the Bronx, says Davidoff

I was really hoping the Yankees would do this. They’re opening up the Stadium for Game 3, which will be out in Anaheim. Fan can watch from the Great Hall or field level seats. And yes, concessions will be open, as will NYY Steak and Hard Rock Cafe. Gates open at 3:30 for the 4:13 game. This is pretty damn cool, I have to say, especially for a late afternoon game. Anyone plan to go?

    that is a good idea especially since they are not charging.

      I suspect NYY Steak and the Hard Rock won’t be giving away free food and drinks.

    If I didn’t have work, I’d be there. Stupid job.

      More like stupid MLB. West Coast playoff game that’s too early for those of us in New York to watch. Give yourself a round of applause, Bud Selig.

        Fox doesn’t want to pre-empt House. What are you gonna do?

        Didn’t wanna have to compete with MNF is my guess.

  • Tank the Frank

    It’s free?

  • dkidd

    i’m going!

  • Mike Pop

    Why would I want to watch it outside in the cold when I could be at home in my heated house?

      Why would I want to complain and second guess in public where I can be held accountable for my inanities when I can do it from the comfort, anonymity, and protection of my sofa all by myself?

  • RCK

    I have to work, but I might head up when I get out. Not a bad idea.

  • You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)

    I’m assuming they are showing it on the big screen in center field. Correct?

  • misterd

    *****! I would do it but I have work. On a normal day, I’d make it to the stadium just in time for the first pitch, but it’ll be a late day due to union obligations.

  • putt

    This is very cool. Props to the FO for doing something so fan-friendly. Sure, they’ll make a few bucks in concessions, but I like the spirit it helps create.

  • Ivan

    Is is free, cuz if it is, then yeah I would certainly go.

  • http://www.secondavenuesagas.com Benjamin Kabak

    As everyone said, if this is free, that’s even better. RAB meet up!

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      I was just thinking the same thing. Pick a spot where we can all get together and I will def be there.

      • A-Rod Fan

        OH OH Behind home!

        kidding

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      Can we sit in the Legends seats, inside the moat, safely protected from the unwashed masses?

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        Can I sit next to Kate Hudson?

        • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

          And Jay-Z? Can we have a threeway?

          Better yet, can Jay-Z, Kate Hudson, and ARod have a threeway, freeing me up to make a move on Beyonce?

          • Andy in Sunny Daytona

            A three-way with Beyonce’ and Sasha Fierce.

              You’re the man, Andy. You always add value.

              Split personalities are so fucking hot. You have no idea who you’re sleeping with.

              Gosh, I love crazy women.

    • http://www.bronxbaseballdaily.com Rob A of BBD

      I’d certainly be interested in going. Are there any more details? Where are they having people sit? Same security as always?

    • http://and-that-happened.blogspot.com Evan

      I’m down for a meetup.

  • http://www.puristbleedspinstripes.com Rebecca-Optimist Prime

    I’m there. Where are we meeting?

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      I guess they’re going to wait and see how much interest there is, but hopefully there will be a post tomorrow telling anyone interested where to go.

      • http://www.secondavenuesagas.com Benjamin Kabak

        We’re trying to gauge interest and figure out logistics. When we have it, we’ll post.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    I have to work tomorrow. But that is the ONLY thing keeping me from being there, that, 1200 miles and a way to get there. Other than those things, I would so be there. Damn it. That game is going to conflict with IPK’s Surprise start tomorrow afternoon. I know what Sophie felt like now.

          …or the choice I’m currently dealing with, Bucs-Panthers or masturbation with razor blade gloves.

          • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

            That’s a tough one. Does your TV work totally, or is it broken in some way, i.e. it’s been dropped once or twice so half of the screen is now black and dead?

            • Andy in Sunny Daytona

              I’m going to risk the gloves. This way, I might get some pleasure.

  • pete

    my last monday class at Hofstra ends at 3:00. I could probably get there by 5:00. If the weather is good I may actually go. coolio

    • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

      You go to the ‘Stra? I went there for a year.

  • happyyankeefan

    FUCK I have a midterm from 4-530! but its uptown. Is there admittance through out the whole game? Are they doing it for each game? This is such a dope idea!

  • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

    The weather should be a bit better than Friday and Saturday

    Tomorrow: Showers early becoming less numerous later in the day. High near 50F. Winds NNW at 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 60%.

    Tomorrow night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 42F. Winds WNW at 5 to 10 mph.

    • Reggie C.

      Winds = BRICK HOUSE

  • JGS

    damn you massive exam tuesday morning!

  • http://www.twitter.com/MatthewHarris84 Matt H. :: Sec105

    That would be cool if they did this for all post season games. I guess they’ll see how the turnout and how much money they make tomorrow to see if it’s worth it.

    They are saying you can watch it in the great hall on that huge tv, which is cool, but are they bringing in seats? Standing for a 3 and a half hour game is retarded.

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      This post reminds me of the old line about NYC residents

      “You could give New Yorkers free water and they’ll complain it has no taste”

      . . or any of the 5,000 variations on it.

      • http://www.twitter.com/MatthewHarris84 Matt H. :: Sec105

        why? It’s a legit question. But hey, if you go, feel free to stand in the great hall.

        • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

          Because they’re doing this for free, as a thank you gesture to the fans and you’re complaining about it. When someone goes out of their way to do something nice for me, I don’t bitch about it. But I guess everyone isn’t like me.

          • Zack

            No, you’re right. But we’re dealing with Yankee fans and Yankee Stadium- and all season people just want to take shots at them for whatever they can. Rich guys in good seats, they delay games on purpose just for my hot dog money, etc. Instead of people just enjoying the experience and the game they have to look for the negatives. Give somone a free Mercedes and he could find something to complain about.

            • http://www.twitter.com/MatthewHarris84 Matt H. :: Sec105

              Whoa, whoa….let’s not get everyone’s panties in a bunch.

              I’m not at all taking a shot at the Yanks, I think this is a great idea, but I was just pointing out that it would be tough to stand for 3 hours, geez.

    • owine

      Field level seats will be open too and the game will be on the center field video board.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    I think “real” fans should sit in the bleachers, with a obstructed view of the screen, just to prove that they are, indeed, a true fan, and not some rich snob who sits in the plushy seats.

  • http://www.twitter.com/MatthewHarris84 Matt H. :: Sec105

    They should open the Mohegan Sun Bar also, and just treat it like a “real” bar…

  • http://theenlighteneddespot.com NC Saint

    Awesome idea, Yankees!

    Less awesome is the weekday afternoon start time for an ALCS game. I will be at work, surreptitiously following the game and looking in to the cheapest way to have Bud Selig killed.

  • Manimal

    Can I bring a lawn chair and sit in center field?

  • wanger

    I wonder if the security will be as strict…i would go if i could skip the 10 dollar beers and bring my own

  • BC

    I would definitely go if I didn’t have class until 4:30…If they do this throughout the playoffs, I would definitely go to atleast one.
