Last April, we created a "Stadium Tips" document, with the intention of providing visitors to Yankee Stadium an unofficial, uncensored guide to the "new house." We didn't update it as much as we would have liked during the season, but at times, we added vital information. Upon launching our redesigned blog a couple of weeks ago, the first thing we did was completely update the document based on a season's worth of experiences. You can access it up on the navbar.
This morning, someone wrote in with some valuable tips about driving to the stadium. Since NYYSI headquarters is on the Upper East Side (only 12 minutes away by Subway), we never drive to the stadium. Tips like the one we received this morning are extremely valuable for the document, since it is impossible for us to experience everything and report it to our readers. If after reading the tips document you have any comments or suggestions, please use the "contact us" form at the top of the page. We'd love to hear all of our reader's tips!
On another note, we have decided to run a fantasy baseball league for 2010. Every blog does this, so we have usually steered clear (we like to be different). Unfortunately, the fantasy baseball league that we usually join has begun to use stats we don't believe in, so we're creating our own league. The information for the Stadium Insider 2010 fantasy baseball league is as follows
- Significant buy-in ( in other words, this is NOT a free league - please use the contact us form for more information)
- Yahoo, live draft
- 12 teams (minimum 10 if we can't get 12)
- 5x5, head to head, weekly - each category counts as a "win"
- Batting Categories: TB, OBP, BB, Net SB, RBI
- Pitching Categories: ERA, WHIP, K/BB, K/9, Quality Starts
