Yankee Stadium host two college football games in the next two months: Notre Dame vs. Army on Saturday, November 20, and the New Era Pinstripe Bowl on Thursday, December 30.

The field is beginning to look the part.

    No football should be allowed in a baseball cathedral .

    Why put new sod down when it’s going to be destroyed anyway?

    As long as the field is in good shape when baseball season begins in April, who cares what events are being held over the offseason at the Stadium?

    Yankee Stadium and Wrigley Field have been the sites of several big non-baseball events in their history.

    They’re going to sod the infield dirt for football……It’s easier to sod in a square configuration rather than just the horn of the infield as they did in the old days………

    Hot Dogs or Polish Sausage ?

    Laura, not really.

    John F. Kennedy is credited with writing the book, for which he won a Pulitzer. For years, there were allegations that the book was written/ghostwritten by his principal speechwriter, Ted Sorenson. I think Sorenson finally admitted to writing much of it a couple of years ago.

    Sorenson passed away today.

    Yes really.

    Compliments of MLB Rumors-R-Us.

    “•Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com notes that it doesn’t appear as if the Orioles have made much of an attempt to keep Koji Uehara. Uehara finished 2010 as the team’s closer, but he is scheduled to be a free agent in the not-too-distant future.”

    =================================================================

    If this becomes fact, he’s a good choice for the Yankee bullpen, as long as he comes at a reasonable price. He made $5 mil in 2010, so the price will be high…maybe as close as Kerry Wood’s price.

    Kerry Wood likes sushi and sashimi ? ?

    The new stadium is no longer a cathedral to baseball, how can anyone call it a baseball stadium when the best seats are occupied by fans who would rather sit in the restaurant during the game. Fans barely clap when the pitcher gets two strikes in this stadium, heck I even remember fans standing/clapping when Ed Whitson got two strikes on a hitter. The old stadium was the cathedral and even it hosted football games, any one ever hear of the 1958 NFL championship game. So if you think having football games goes against the history of the stadium, you are wrong.

    I think the seating sections divided up by class is more of an insult to the Cathedral rather than college football.
