Yankee Stadium gates will open at 1 p.m. on Sunday as the Yankees invite fans to take one last memorable stroll through Monument Park. Fans will also be allowed to exit Monument Park onto the field where they will be permitted to walk along the warning track around the outfield and behind home plate.You hear that kids? DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT STEPPING ON BIG STEIN'S BEAUTIFULLY MANICURED (pedicured?) LAWN! Trust me, you don't want to break the rules at Yankee Stadium. I took the Stadium tour this winter and the guards watch you like hawks making sure that you don't step foot on the grass. I think there may have even been snipers on the facade of the Stadium ready to act if I took a wrong step.
All kidding aside, this is a pretty cool thing for the Yankees to do. If you have tickets to the game on Sunday, you will most certainly have a memorable day at the old ballpark.
Check out the details of the festivities and don't forget that if you try to steal stuff, you will be arrested.
Talk about it in the NYYSI Forums!
