Ask any three diehard Yankees fans who frequent Yankee Stadium on a regular basis and at least two of them will tell you that they’ve played the “Meet me at the bat” card at least once in their lifetime when it came to finding a spot to rendezvous with a game-buddy.
Looking at Tom Kaminski’s latest Chopper 880 photos of the new Yankee Stadium, this shot caught my eye:
And, it made me wonder: Will the huge interlocking “NY” on the ground outside Gate 4 become the new “bat” (in terms of becoming a common meeting spot for most Yankees fans)? Perhaps…
But, such a spot would not offer the fun of waiting for someone with them being there already, the whole time, but just standing on the opposite side of the bat (and out of your view). Also, “Meet me at the logo” just doesn’t have the same cool effect of “Meet me at that bat” – does it?
