The Yankees are giving us media types a tour of the new ballpark tomorrow afternoon. will have plenty of photos on the site at some point.

In the meantime, I’m curious about what you would want to know about the new place. We’re going to get a chance to interview chief operating officer Lonn Trost, one of the execs in charge of the new stadium. What questions would you like answered?

Drop me an e-mail with any suggestions you have.

It’ll be interesting to see if they have Mark Teixeira’s locker picked out yet.

UPDATE: I’m at 250 e-mails and counting. I think that’s enough. Thanks for all the questions. A few answers I can give you now:

Munson’s locker: It will be moved to a museum in the new Stadium. There will be an empty locker in the new clubhouse to honor all deceased players.

Tickets/prices/etc.: This tour is to get a feel for the place as a facility. I’m not going to ask questions tomorrow about hot dogs, parking, tickets, etc.

The old Stadium: Will be torn down and the area will become a park to replace the park where the new Stadium is being built. I believe the field itself will be saved but I’ll check on that.

Monument Park: Of course there will be one in the new place. They’ll move everything over.


This is going to triple my page views.
