My day at Yankee Stadium

16 August 2014 - 10:49 PM

As a partial season ticket holder, the team had a Take The Field day today for some fans while the Yankees are down in Tampa. I got to see behind the scenes (serious No Cameras Allowed), take batting practice in the indoor cage, shag fly balls in the outfield, hang out in the dugouts, pitch in the bullpen and oh yeah ... TAKE BATTING PRACTICE FROM BEHIND HOME PLATE! That last one still hasn't sunk in yet. Here are a few photos ...

Yankees dugout too crowded for a shot. Visitors instead.

Anyone going to watch Johnny Football tonight?

Should sart 2nd Q. I hope he crashes and burns.


What's the MOST important aspect of a winning team?

Explain your answer! 

 

For example, is it the QB? The coaching staff? The D-Line? WRs? LB corps? The O-Line? Secondary? RBs?

 

 


Name one small tweak to make the game even better

Football is already the best of any sport out there, but it isn't perfect. What is one thing you would do to make the game even better? Small tweaks. Nothing crazy like Goodell is trying to do.

 

Me? I'd drop the play clock by 5 seconds. I think they did this in the Pro Bowl? I say that because though rather dull, soccer is 45 min of continuous action. Baseball won't cut to a commercial until the inning is over or there is a pitcher change. Other than WAY too many timeouts, basketball action only stops due to a foul.

 

But football is: play, stop, play, stop, play, stop, play, stop, play, stop etc. Sometimes it just kills the excitement. And don't get me started on the commercials. The worst is when they cut to commercial after a score, then show the quick kickoff, then cut back to commercial. Hate it. If we could just speed up the actual gameplay a tad it'd be perfect, IMHO.
