Who Said There Was More Leg Room At The New Yankee Stadium?

We recently posted photos illustrating the much-improved leg room for the seats in the Grandstand at the New Yankee Stadium. Unfortunately the same cannot be said about these multi-year commitment, $500 per ticket seats down the first base line:

Hey, at least there is plenty of padding!*

Wherever you are sitting this morning, be happy it is not in those seats. Obviously, they are not in their permanent home (we hope!), but with how this new stadium relocation process has been going, anything is possible. After all, the Yankees did build a restaurant that blocks the view for half of the people in the bleachers!

*Thanks to the Baseball Fever stadium construction thread via this web album for this hilarious photo.

Those seats in that section simply hadn't been bolted in yet. The bolts on the ground are approximately 35 inches behind the legs to these seat. The seats are just resting against that concrete wall.

Thought I'd clear this up before we got another load of complaining uninformed whiners.

Attributing that comment to Lonn Trost really vibes with the blog's theme - well played.

As for the seats, it is fairly obvious that those will not be their permanent home, but it is a fun photo nonetheless.

It's hysterical to me, going to some other blogs today (including LoHud's), how there are actually a few people out there who believe that's how those seats really are. Sad, innit?

There are a lot of dumb people out there, I can vouch for that.

Being an architect I can't say I'd be surprised had the seats ended up like that. I've seen some messed up things doing the punch list.

Told everyone not to hire this architect:

Obviously it's a joke, but every good joke has a kernel of wouldn't be any less fan friendly than anything else my team (still my team in spite of it all) has perpetrated in recent years.
