Yankees-Orioles postponed after rain, grounds-crew fumble

The game between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles scheduled for Monday was postponed after a rain delay, with an apparent botched removal of the tarp by the grounds crew leaving Yankee Stadium with unplayable field conditions.

The game will be made up as the first game of a single-game admission doubleheader Wednesday. The opener will begin at 3:05 p.m. ET. Game 2 will begin no earlier than 6:35 p.m.

The Monday game was originally slated to start at 6:35 p.m., but because of rain, the Yankees bumped the start back to 7:45 p.m. The grounds crew began removing the tarp a few minutes before the new start time, but the water on the tarp wound up getting dumped in left field.

In other words, it isn’t just the Yankees’ medical staff who are incompetent….

Kate Smith’s ‘God Bless America’ Out At Yankee Stadium Over Racist Songs

The Yankees have decided to no longer run Kate Smith’s version of “God Bless America” during their seventh-inning stretch because of Smith’s affiliation with songs that carried racist lyrics.

But don’t getcher hopes up too much.

Apr 24, 1934 - New York Yankees vs. Philadelphia Athletics, NYC (real sound)

Around 18 minutes of pregame festivities and game footage from Yankee Stadium- rather fascinating to watch in various regards.

Leaking beer and Cracker Jack mice: 5 bizarre things ESPN found in stadium food reports

Eating at a professional sports stadium is expensive for the fan and lucrative for the concession provider. It can also be a gross time for health inspectors, as ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” detailed in a report released Thursday.

“What’s lurking in your stadium food?” provided some thoroughly disturbing answers. The analysis looked at 16,900 routine food-safety inspection reports throughout 2016 and 2017 from local health departments of 111 North American sports venues.

It found that 28 percent of the stadiums had high-level violations at at least half of the outlets inspected. Those violations are ones that can pose a risk for foodborne illnesses.

For those of you who wanted another reason to eat before going to the game….
