Welcome to Yankee Stadium, where security measures now resemble those at the airport. And starting next season, that will be the case at every ballpark in the big leagues.
Fans arriving for the first of a three-game series between the Yankees and the Houston Astros had to pass through metal detectors at Gate 2.
The use of metal detectors at the stadium will be in addition to bag checks and have prompted the Yankees to urge their fans to get to the ballpark earlier.
These places have come and gone over the years, but New York and New Jersey boast some of the best in the country. Here’s how they stack up against each other.
“Bald Vinny” Milano says Derek Jeter also deserves a street named after him in the Bronx. And he’s not just selling the idea — he’s selling the shirt.
David Villa and Frank Lampard had to be thinking the same thing. Next year at this time, they will be playing for New York City FC. And it’s going to be very cool calling Yankee Stadium home.
Simon Mignolet saved two penalty kicks and Lucas Leiva scored in the fourth round to lift Liverpool past Manchester City after they tied 2-2 on Wednesday night in an International Champions Cup game.
Once the rain arrived, Ron Washington’s team never got another chance to come back: “This game shouldn’t come to us losing it. It should have been suspended.”
Next Wednesday, Yankee Stadium will host another international match as Manchester City faces Liverpool as part of the Guinness International Champions Cup.
The WFAN travel mug promotion at Yankee Stadium was cool. The next one will be hot.
He’s a cheat and a hypocrite, telling kids about the perils of PEDs while shooting equine cocktails deep into his tan tush. He’s not playing this season precisely because of his broken moral compass. But do we miss him?
Even through a most generous lens, it’s hard to assert that Tino Martinez is a bedrock member of Yankees royalty. When you’re not even the best or second-best first baseman in franchise history, it’s hard to declare that you belong in Monument Park.
Craig Carton, who dropped a pop-up that nearly cost Team Boomer the game, told Chris Christie that third base “was a little hot for you to handle.” The governor wouldn’t have it.
He caught the ball to make a crucial out at third base in the seventh inning with the bases loaded. His team eked out a 7-6 win.
To lose 15 games in a row in one ballpark takes a lot of lousy luck. For the second night in a row, a short home run to right field at Yankee Stadium proved to be Toronto’s undoing.
